NW corner down to the flooring
Well, we had decided to do something about the sorry condition of the living room carpet. We decided on wood flooring. We went to Lowe's and picked it out, signed up for them to do the labor--moving the furniture around the house, tearing up and disposing of the carpet, etc. Took forever for them to get enough of the flooring (standard stuff, not a special order) from the warehouse to the store to our house. Finally got that delivered. Made an appointment for the installers to come. However, when they did, they measured the 'moisture level' and declared it to be too high for them to be able to lay the flooring. Seems the combination of dog 'accidents' and over-shampooing to make up for it (we thought) caused the flooring to be wet. SO, Mike ended up tearing up the carpet, and the padding (and disposing of it) and running fans and dehumidifier around the clock (can't wait to see the electric bill). I knew that's what he was having to do but it was still something of a shock to see!
