"Out with the old. In with the new."
Ok, so it's 11:30 at night and I don't have time to figure out why these pictures are coming out sideways but you get the drift of the Before and After. Maybe I'll fix it later.
This isn't a typical Summer Fun post. I mean who would consider having to remove all their furniture to have the floors resurfaced to be fun? Getting ready for this project was a LOT of work, not to mention a mess during the process. It's almost like moving... maybe worse because of the mess! I'm putting it in the Summer Fun Challenge, hosted by Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 though because I think it's fun to brag about other people. I am so impressed with the subcontractors that worked on my project.
We hear a lot these days how hard it is to get good help. I want to send out big kudos to some of the great help available in Wenatchee. I contracted this project through Columbia River Interiors in Wenatchee. Tim was my contact person at CRI and arranged all the subs for the various jobs.
Other than packing up my stuff, I arranged to have a storage pod delivered to my house to put all my stuff in. The pod was an awesome answer to where to put my furniture during the flooring project. It was arranged through East Wenatchee Mini Storage. Sometime I will write about that whole process, which was very interesting.
The movers who filled the pod were amazing. They were so nice and worked tirelessly to get the pod loaded as I requested. Not surprising that all my stuff didn't fit into the pod, so we agreed to store stuff behind the pod, where it was out of the weather and unnoticeable to anyone walking or driving by. They also took great care to tarp off the outside items to protect them from airborne dust and pollen.
The installer was also amazing. He worked from 8:00 - 6:30 the first day and 8:00 am - 8:30 pm the second day. Due to a snafu (which was partly my fault) the kitchen didn't get finished but it will be soon I'm sure.
So, even though my flooring project isn't totally finished I am loving my new floors. A lot of work but well worth it. I am going to enjoy these floors for a long time!
