I finally have my computer back, here it is in the computer armoire.
Do you see anything different?
It arrived in these boxes:
Yep, hardwood floors!!!
The old, dirty carpet was removed:
This is the discovery of uneven surface not suitable for laying wood floors. In Florida the foundation of homes is a concrete slab. If it isn't perfectly even (if it rains on the slab while the cement is still wet) then this has to be fixed by pouring more cement to be smoothed out nicely. This has to dry overnight, then the next day it has to be sanded to a smooth surface.
I didn't get a picture of the huge sander (because I was hid out, undercover, with the dust storm flying everywhere!
See that layer of dust - it is on every square inch inside our house!!!
Fortunately most of the furniture was stacked in the garage, but all the blinds, chandeliers, etc. were exposed. Plus, we have very high shelves throughout our house that dust is on. About three weeks ago we climbed high ladders and cleaned these high shelves. Now we get to do it all over again! What fun.
My dream of having new flooring has turned into a nightmare!! What should have been finished in three or four days is now at least seven days. We are living in a huge mess, furniture and accessories are stored in each bedroom. Guest room:
That's the computer armoire, it has now been moved back to it's place.
Here's the back of it, from another angle:
Breakable things on top of bedroom TV armoire.
Does this look like an episode from Hoarders? I promise you it will be clean and organized SOON!
More stuff in the office/craft room:
One night the worker's tools, etc. was stored in this room as well:
Then the boxes of wood was stored in the guest room:
The Family room TV armoire is in the breakfast nook, along with the sofa:

The breakfast nook table and chairs are in the middle of the kitchen:
Another view of the kitchen:
This is how they left us Saturday, the family room floor, the exposed part is where the sofa goes. That will be finished Monday, but the sofa can't go back until Tuesday (after the glue dries.)
Hopefully the wood will be laid in here tomorrow too.
Nice home tour, huh? I promise when this is all done and put back together I will take pictures of it looking pretty! That is if I survive all this work!!
Here's two shots of the high shelves I will be cleaning tomorrow:
Pray for me, this is a lesson in patience!!! I hope I pass the test.
Hopefully, by the weekend I can give an update, a happy one!
