No More Capret!!

The painting is finally finished! Thanks to Mom's help again today the painting is finished! That meant that we got to remove the dirty old carpet. It was glued down years ago and the glue had dried out so it was pretty easy to remove for the most part. It had been installed under the base board but there were just areas where it had stuck. Some of the cement had crumbles so we had to patch it. We looked at few different option, tile was our first choice, but was very costly and time consuming, so we choose a self stick resilient flooring by TrafficMaster. It was about a dollar a square foot and can be grouted to look like time, plus it has a lifetime warranty.

In about 30 minutes we were able to get a full box down which is 30 square feet. We hope to have it finished by the end of the weekend, as starting next week we are going to start the hardwood floors. I'll update more pictures once we get it all installed and grouted.
