long time coming
The laminate flooring has been sitting in boxes in the bedroom for at least seven years, it is such a delight to finally have the carpet gone and the flooring in place!
The foot of the bed and storage bench, and a bit of rare sunlight shining through the south window and reflecting off the new flooring.
Back in OlyWa, at Fjords End, I learned about using corner blocking as a simpler way to join baseboard and other moldings, and I decided that it would be equally useful here at Acorn Cottage. The alternative would have been to somehow pry the existing sixty-five year old baseboards off the wall (which sounded like a recipe for disaster and remedial plaster and paint work) and reinstall them after putting the flooring in place...
