Ask DJ Lyons: Home Office Renovations Day 9

My home office is being re-done

We are on the home stretch now of the home office renovations. On Saturday, Feb. 12, 2011, Tommy and Dal began laying down the new flooring. It is very exciting watching this day-by-day progress. It gives me a new sense of appreciation for having a sturdy floor.

You can visit my previous hubs to see how it looked day-by-day prior to this day. It makes for quite a contrast.

I eagerly anticipate no longer looking like that "Hoarders" show in the rest of the house because I will finally be able to move my stuff back in to my newly redone home office.

Floor has started to be laid

As you can see, part of the floor is in. They had to work on the wiring and ventilation as well.

Saw Horses in the car port

Behold the saw horses in the car port. Tommy saws the boards to the appropriate sizes out here. Then he passes the boards through the window to Dal who is waiting inside.
