Get ready for some flooring stories… That’s right, I’m installing another floor. The situation is a little different than usual though. This time I’m… in charge. Pretty cool, eh? No, not scary. I said “Cool.” Also, the job site is approximately 3 steps from my bedroom, on the other side of the duplex. This is definitely gonna be different.
It’s a bamboo floor, horizontal orientation, 5/8 by 3-7/8 boards… If any of that means anything to you. Anyways, we’ve been working on it for two days, and I gotta say, I am pleased with our progress. I thought TJ and I would be substantially slower than my dad and I, since I am out of practice, and he has never installed a wood floor before. Not to mention the fact that my dad is usually there for the tough questions. But, contrary to my predictions, we are way ahead of schedule. We’re actually right on the verge of outworking our supplies. Tomorrow we can only work a half day because we have to have the stair nose in order to lay the last section of floor. Basically, we’re awesome.
In other news, my favorite fiancee bought me a binary clock for Christmas. It’s pretty much the coolest gift ever. It can even display in 24 hour mode! I’m pretty happy about it.
