Bruce is in the house!

Our Bruce flooring that is. It came in earlier than expected and just as we finished the beadboard. We just might be back on track after all. Or will we?

Progress after Day One of floor installation:

Rock Out With Your Caulk Out

Sorry, but the pun. It was irresistible.

We began the first weekend AD (after discovery of the floor issue) by purchasing, cutting and painting the beadboard, painting the room and starting on the beadboard.That day only two panels were hung. Color me frustrated.

Even Doug was annoyed with how slow the progress was

Over the next few weeks Matt and Glen slaved away weekend after weekend, scribing cuts on to beadboard, hanging said beadboard, discussing molding options and finally getting to use our caulking gun. Sue and I headed up trim painting. You'd be amazed how much trim was in that room.

Finally all of the beadboard was hung by the chimney with care, with hopes that hardwoods soon we be there.

Great job guys! The room looks amazing and as Glen pointed out, a professional couldn't have done a better job.
