Are We There Yet?

As you guys know we have been working on our house renovation for a VERY long time and the question that we all are wondering is.....ARE WE THERE YET? The answer is ALMOST!! We finally finished our main floor about a week ago but I forgot to blog about it. We are still waiting to get the carpet in our bedrooms and that probably won't happen for another couple of weeks. After that we will get the trim put in and the doors. Then once we finally get money again...which might be a while....then we will be able to purchase blinds and some of the other little things.....then maybe down the road we will get some new furniture but it will probably be a while. The exciting part is that we are able to walk around our house without stepping on staples or nails. That deserves a YEPEE if you ask me.
This is the project winding down. We only had one room left and we could see the light at the end of the tunnel. We had been smelling glue from too many days.
Here is my Mr. G laying some of the last pieces. He was so careful to make sure that each piece laid just right. We didn't want to have to do this EVER again.

And the final pieces going into place. Nobody informed Mr. G to look at the camera and smile so he just stared at the ground.
We are happy with the way the floor looks and are glad that we chose the floor that we did. We think it will all look even better once the white wood work and doors gets put in. Now it's time to just hurry up and wait.
*FYI* I had a bit of trouble writing this because Marleys tail is laying across the keyboard and it is hard to feel which key is which....but I wouldn't dare move him because he looks so cute. I made due.
