Remodel day 7: Out darn* smell!

Most of the house work time was spent at Home Depot writing down prices and looking at flooring samples. It was great to find out that Home Depot's carpet installation beats Costco and even Empire for the platinum plus carpet! Still trying to figure out hard surface flooring. We are looking at laminate, but a Home Depot salesperson showed us vinyl wood flooring as an option. More to research...

At the house we swept up the dust and debris and mopped with a vinegar water solution to help sanitize and deodorize the house. More layers of bleach and kilz primer to come. We also measured the exterior to get an estimate for lap board siding.

As the tear out and clean up stage is coming toward the end, we are getting exponentially more excited about rebuilding and making this house OUR home. :)

Wow! Sweat equity into your investment! So proud of your can do & WILL DO attitudes!
Are there Lumber Liquidators in CA? I hear they do flooring too.

Thanks! :) We were thinking of doing the flooring ourselves, just buying materials but we could look into lumber liquidators. :)
