Here is a little flash back to how our livingroom looked about 2 weeks after moving in. All the green boxes are the hard wood flooring acclimating before being installed. Believe it or not, this was actually an improvement. there was one tiny little path from the front door to the back door. Matt spent the day waiting for the Directv man to install our dish, and spent the 3 hour window putting stuff away. I was so relieved when I came home to see that we had TV and there was about 1/2 of our stuff made it out of the living room.
And here it is shortly before we began installing the hardwood flooring. I do not miss this.
