    tobyn & Corky... have Spackle.. will travel:biggrin:

    And please tell Den that I appreciate the compliment.

    Cutes, you do not have enough time in your days to Spackle... you stay on the go.

    Michelle.. the guy on the floor is the hole maker, fan breaker.. hot water cooler... :hammer:

    We just saw two different guys for the flooring, and the last one sounds so great and the price very good.. I almost wrote him a check on the spot.
    But we are going to see one more person so that we have three quotes.
    but so far this guy in in the running.
    solid wood floors..... my dream.

    I just hope that whomever we get does a good job, or else the next thing I do will be floors

    Michelle, at that time I only knew about the two extra holes.

    The lights, fan,wall plugs and hot water heater not working was a later revelation:hammer:

    Karin, I was once in a situation where if I needed things done, I had best do them. So me and my trusty "Readers Digest how to" book because great friends..

    I actually suggested to Einstein that I was sure I could do the flooring.. he said a very loud "NO"

    But when we get it done, I will be watching how they do it.

    you never know when it might come in handy

    Red, your hired. I need to finish the kitchen, put in a patio, finish off siding when we tear out the deck to put in the patio, pour a new driveway, finish the basement, landscape....I could use you for years! LOL

    Actually I do! My daughter is going to be in a wedding in May and the dress needs to be altered. The last one she was in cost us $80 in alterations! She has been losing weight so it's going to be even worse this time.

    I have 2 European shams that the zippers are broke. I wish I had one of those bolster pillows that you showed with a cover to match. Hmmm......I'm sure I could really keep you for a l-o-n-g time here!

    Red - I vote with E on this. Real hardwood floors are very labor intensive to do. It is not worth the aches and pains. There are a few things in life we just have to pay out for...floors are one of them. :doubleup:

    once we went from one square room into a bunch of rooms and odd corners and spaces.. I was real glad to back off.

    Red, nice done! Looks better than if the "pros" are doing it!

    About the floor; I don't know what type of hardwood floor you have. Over here we usually have oak and the floorboards are about 50 by 8 inches (and less than one inch thick) and there is a "click system" to easy connect them. No need for glue just some tapping.
    To put in the floorboards in a room only takes a couple of hours. It's the work before and after that takes time.
    Only problem is your knees and back will hurt!

    Maybe you have a different system over there, with bigger planks?
