So hard to believe sometimes that this house is ours.
Gary and I are so excited to actually start living in our new house. And I think Michelle is ready to get rid of her extra roommates.
The original house had carpet on the stairs and the whole second level. I am not a carpet fan so that was one thing that needed to go before moving plus the master bathroom needed major updates! This has been our first major remodeling project together as a married couple, plus this is our first house together. Nothing like starting married life with this project! But since we have been together for 10 years it has really been fairly easy besides waiting for it to be done.
We usually like to do things ourselves but realized this project needed the professionals.
Gary and I went back and forth on what hardwood flooring we wanted, really our budget came into play on what flooring to go with. We decided on red oak for our hardwood.
I was so excited when I saw these boxes arrive at our house a few weeks ago.
Before heading out of town for the honeymoon Gary and I stopped by the house and saw that they started to put down our red oak flooring.
We were both really pleased with the look of the red oak. We were nervous there for awhile as we were not sure how it was going to turn out.
Looking good right?

Hard to believe this is what the floor looked like a few weeks ago.
Loving our new stairs.
I really am in love with this red oak. Even though it was not my first pick of wood flooring I am very pleased with the final result!
I will share more pictures of the house with you soon. Gary gets into town tonight after being away for work for a few days, so I am excited for him to see how the house is coming along! And actually start living in it
