OMG people, OMG

Dude, I pulled up the vent and found this, like what the hell?!?!?! Not even duct work, just like arachnophobia. EW, ew, ew. Cleaning day one, slow and scary. But I did get some better news, like the freaking rockin floors I apparently own. I had told the man on the phone whom I called about an estimate that I thought the floors were fir. He said that sounded right for a house built in the 40s. When he got there he looked at the floor and then said, "This is NOT fir. Do you know what kind of wood you have here?" I was like, "Um, Oak?" He said I had Pecan! How cool is that, it’s really rare I guess and it finishes up beautifully. I am so so excited about this. The two bedrooms are red oak, and I have one walk in closet that is fir. But I also learned that I can’t paint before the floors get refinished, so that will have to wait. I have plenty more to do anyway.

So after cleaning I ran home, showered and grabbed a bunch of stuff to take to the Scrapyard for the crop that Angela was in charge of tonight. I had invited Sarah there to meet her in person. It was so fun, just what I needed. Sarah was great, and I loved her stuff (2peas gallery here). I made the cutest little book for Violet, I’ll try to take pics before I leave again for the house early tomorrow morning.

  1. Yes – OMG! After finding that in a vent, I’d have to shower immediately. Eeeuuuuwww.
    Are you going to refinish all the floors? How long does that take? Can’t wait to see refinished pecan floors.
    Are you going to do all the cleaning/fixing up before you move in?

  2. Ahhh, the joys of homeownership!!! We are still finding crazy things around our house! Very cool about your floors, though! I can’t wait to see the finished product!
