|Dad - "Do you really think it's going to fit?"|
|Good bye nasty, gross, worn, stained, blech carpet. You've served your purpose. Rest in peace at the dump.|
Until around 9:15.
My co-worker tells me that she hears my phone ringing - this can't be good.
Zak Brown tells me that when they pulled up the carpet in the living room there was a problem with the transition from the original floors under the carpet to the newer floors in the hallway. The planks matched up on the long side, but the short ends were off "just a bit." Multiply that "just a bit" times twenty boards and it becomes a "whole heck of a lot."
We had a few choices that needed to be made in a short amount of time:
1. He could lay a few planks running the opposite direction that would follow the path of the just removed carpet. The planks would not be a straight line from the hall closet to the front door since they are offset by a foot or so.
2. Re-lay the hallway planks so they will match properly
3. Re-lay some of the living room planks so they will match properly
Each one has their pros and cons
The planks in the opposite direction would essentially section off the hallway and entryway from the living room. Much the same as the carpet did.
Re-laying the planks in either option two or option three would cost additional money and time, but it would give us the look we wanted.
Ultimately we chose to have Zak Brown re-lay the planks. He said that he would measure both areas to determine which option would be more cost effective. Turns out that relaying the living room planks was the more cost effective option.
|Hello pretty, unstained, beautiful floors. Welcome to the family.|
