So, back to what I was saying 5 days ago....
I finally got my 5 new doors installed over the past few days. My gosh, I didn't realize it would take so long to install them! Two young guys spent 15 hours installing 5 doors and frames...that's 3 hours for each door! And, UGH, when it was all over, everything upstairs was coated in dust. That INCLUDES the 108 stairwell spindles that I hand-cleaned just a few weeks ago after my new floors were installed!!! So, I've decided I'm not doing any more deep cleaning until the closets are installed and the kitchen remodel is done, which I hope all will be complete by the end of June.
Back to the doors. They look soooo nice!! Custom, handmade for me, and they aren't cheapo hollow bonk-sounding doors either. Now, I no longer have to wake up in the middle of the night to find two cats and my dog hogging the bed and myself relegated to a thin sliver along the edge. I can shut my door and have the WHOLE bed to myself!!!
Now, the floors. As I mentioned before, I ripped out the carpet from upstairs (downstairs is all tile) which left me with bare concrete floors for a few months. I finally found a decently priced product for piso flotantes (floating hardwood floors) and had them installed a few weeks ago. In a couple days, they'll come back and finish out all the moldings.
So, here's a few before and after pics for your enjoyment:
