Because you can do that now! There will be lots of “Kramering” going on at my house. 😉 Those of you who don’t know what that is, don’t ask!
Here are some before, during and after pictures of the installation. I didn’t do great with the before pictures because we had already moved stuff out of the way before I thought about it. Overall, we are satisfied with the outcome. It was a little rocky at first. We suggest going with a local company with local wood over going with Lumber Liquidators. Yes, the wood was less expensive, but we had a few problems with the size and thickness of each plank matching up properly. Also, be sure to hire installers who only do hardwood floors. That is the one thing we did right! If not for the company we hired, we’d probably be spending double the cost of our floors in the near future on repairs. We paid a little more for very knowledgeable people, and it was so worth it! Okay, now the pics….
