Hickory Dickory Doc

No clock here though- only soon-to-be gorgeous Hickory floors! floor start

I don't think I can accurately express how excited this picture makes me!  Yesterday was spent prepping floors for most of the day, but I was able to get this started towards the end of the day.  Since I'm essentially figuring out how to install a hardwood floor as I go, there's definitely going to be a bit of trial and error (hopefully no major errors- keep your fingers crossed!).  If you have any experience with this, I'm definitely open to tips!

Next week, once I get the hang of it, I'll let you in on my steps and all the details.  I need to get hopping on this floor, though, so we can get the kitchen installed. The IKEA cabinets are being delivered Thursday, although install is still TBD.  Have I mentioned my excitement?  She'll be a pretty kitchen.

It's definitely nice to see Clark on his way back from being the demo zone!
