It all began with a little bike that we took the pedals off 2 months ago, essentially creating a cheap version of a balance bike. Then at a garage sale today we picked up a little bigger bike and headed to the park. Joseph hopped on with a little assistance and was off and pedaling. Joshy was not to be outdone and took his turn with the same outcome. They continued to ride unassisted for the next hour. We are so excited to take some family bike rides (once they learn how to use the brakes!!)
We began to use the old boards from the garage/shed we tore down in 2017. First we lightly sanded the boards, then routered the edges to be like shiplap and finally covered them with a layer of polyurethane. The boards are so beautiful!
We spent a couple of weeks looking for sheet vinyl and kept coming to dead ends. All the shipping times were 2-3 weeks out and the flooring cost around $3/sq/ft. We wanted the Armstrong, Diamond 10 Technology Premium Sheet Vinyl because of its endurance and warranty. We finally found a rustic wood look, at half the price from Higginsons in Pullman WA, plus installation. We were so excited and now have the flooring done for the kitchen, entry and bathrooms.
Thanks to Costco, we bought the flooring for the yellow house. It's a little early but you can't pass up a good deal when you see one at Costco! Pretty sure we exceeded the carrying capacity of our minivan but we made it home with no problems and no complaints. You kids are wonderful.
