So how many people do demo to their house 45 days after moving in? Well, I doubt we are the first, but here is our project.
We love how the Victoria Falls has a workshop off of the garage. The Rome doesn't have that option, but there is a study off of the family room that is in the exact position as the Victoria Falls. So our plan since the beginning was to punch a hole through from the garage and put in a door just like the mudroom entrance. We got the lowest grade carpet and pad put into that room so that we could pull it up and put down tile.
Yesterday the carpet came up and today the tile is going down. We chose a peel and stick tile that is thicker than regular peel and stick and you can use grout between the tiles. They look just like ceramic but will be a lot more durable in the workshop.
I thought I had a picture of the room before the carpet came out, which surprises me that I missed that room. I also didn't take a picture right after getting the carpet out. Boy - I'm falling down on my picture taking duties.
So here is the room before carpet, during construction - so it looked about like this when the carpet came out.
And here is the tile going down and pictures of the kind of tile we are using, since I know you fellow bloggers will be asking. And before I forget, it is from the Orange store (HD).
