Madaghan’s New Suite-UpdatePosted: November 14, 2011
After my free Veteran’s Day steak at Texas Roadhouse, Maddie and I headed over to Lumber Liquidators to pick her wood floor. Thinking that the wood planks came in a box that could easily fit into the Saturn, I decided not to borrow a pick up truck. Wrong decision. The planks come wrapped in ties and weigh about 80 pounds each bundle. Maddie and I left Lumber Liquidators empty handed….
The next morning, I borrowed my friend Joey’s pick up truck. We loaded all 15 bundles and carried each one up the stairs and into Madaghan’s room:
Did you know that a wood floor can not be installed the same day you buy it?
” I KNEW IT!”
“SO DID I”
You both knew? Did everyone know except for me?? Oh well. Laurie and I laid all the pieces out so they can lay around for a few days and get acclimated to the humidity blah blah blah. Plus, we wanted to make sure we had enough and go through each bundle tossing the shitty ones out the window for Joey to burn in wood stove:
This is what the room will look like after I get it all nailed (stapled) down:
Looks like I have next weekend planned out for me…gonna be a floor-stapling fool.
