I worked really hard on the first floor and was all "hey guys, I'll have another one out soon for the upstairs/basement/landscaping, hang tight tee hee" and then, kind of per my M.O. around here, there was nothing.
I know, you were all dying to see those layouts and have completely become frozen in anticipation over the last year, waiting for me to impart my spectacular SketchUp skills upon your eager eyes.
Well, good thing something random came up and reminded me that I never got around to doing all that and it was a three-day weekend so I actually could carve out some time to dig up the old measurements I made Kyle take and fiddle around with this blasted machine so you all could finally stop refreshing my Flickr page trying to see if you missed that second debut last October.
Until now, that is.
I have no idea why the background is green (like the awful green my hallway used to be) but I've been actually miserable with some sort of summer flu sinus infection thing all week which means I've been doing an awful lot of mouth breathing for someone not underwater or in the middle of strenuous activity (ahem) and I'm too exhausted from holding my own snotty head up to figure out how to change it. So I apologize that I'm forcing you to look at an ugly background color.
Also, I thought it worth mentioning that there are different floor finishes in the kids' rooms because we laid new hardwoods in Tova's room before she was actually outside of my uterus (and by we I mean Kyle and Second Wife due to said status of fetus en utero) but we are yet to tackle the giant task that is replacing the godawful parquet in Kiedis' room. Like, it's popping up in places because there doesn't appear to be consistent subfloor underneath it and what is still acting as a cohesive floor is completely devoid of any poly or sealant and Kiedis thinks this means he can chip it up himself and DEAR GOD, IT'S A NIGHTMARE.
Especially because how are we going to explain to a developmentally delayed special needs kid that sorry, you can't sleep in the only room you've ever known for like a week while we rip out the old, install various levels of new, stain and finish said new, and let the fumes air out so he doesn't die in his sleep? And where the hell IS he going to sleep while all of that is going on, because clearly he has the biggest room in the whole damn house (nevermind he runs wild in there, too, as he's not really capable of just "going to sleep" as normal children do, oh no) and we don't really have anywhere else to put his furniture other than blocking Tova's door so they're BOTH displaced?
That, however, will probably be something to worry about next summer.
So that's why there are two kinds of wood floor in the layout. Because I'm keeping it real.
And now you know how my upstairs works, and if you click that year-old link, you'll see how they kind of work together.
We'll see if I get to the basement. I wouldn't start being concerned until Fall 2013, if I were you.
