Our home and our lives will be disrupted for the next few days. Monday, we have a crew coming in to refurbish our wood floors.
We have a lot of floor.
I'm told they'll be working on our floors for at least two days. Inconvenient for us, but I anticipate lots of headaches as we try to reassure our dogs that the workers mean no harm.
Starting today, we'll be moving furniture from two-thirds of the house into the remaining one-third. I imagine we'll be watching a lot of television in the bedroom--that is if we can see past all the other furniture piled up in it.
From what I understand, the crew will then super-clean, buff and then recolor the floor to match its original tone. After that, they'll put a sealer on it then treat it with some UV light that's supposed to make a harder seal.
I'm worried that it won't look as good as the pictures they advertise. The before and after photos look convincing, but I know what Photoshop can do!
Still, the person we talked to seemed an honest sort, so maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.
Normally, we would've refinished the floors ourselves, but we don't get up and down as easily as we used to, and Greg is gone so much, so we decided to hire this job out.
Anyway, I'll probably be on the computer a lot while we're waiting. They'll be doing one half of the house at a time so at least we'll have bathrooms available.
I'll report back after they're done and let you know what kind of job they did. Maybe I'll post some before and after pictures too.
What's the longest you've ever been inconvenienced due to a remodeling job? Did it turn out all right?
Yes, I'm nervous about the outcome. Can you tell?
