A Much Needed Break

July 9, 2009 at 6:07 pm Leave a comment

Well, as the title of this post implies, D and I took a much needed break from house stuff last weekend.  After gathering all those quotes, in the end, we decided not to go ahead with the plan to roll the line of credit onto the mortgage…it was just too stressful and complicated!  BUT, we are still planning lots of projects and renovations – we’re just going to take them one thing at a time. 

As I mentioned in previous posts, we’re still planning on painting the cabinets.  We also hope to get that dishwasher installed sooner than later.  For anyone wondering, we didn’t end up buying the Kenmore during the sale…we figured we should wait until we have access to the house so we can measure and make sure it fits. 

Another fairly imminent project is our plan to install laminate flooring throughout much of the main floor.  And this has been the source of some contention between us.  We both agree about putting in the flooring, but disagree on which rooms to put it in, and exactly what type of laminate to get.  D favours this easy install flooring from Windsor Plywood (manufactured by Kaindl), and while I like the idea of the easy click, I’m not happy with the colour choices, and won’t rest until I find the perfect (in an aesthetic sense) floor.  I figure, what’s the point in spending all this time and money on a floor we (I) don’t love?
