Floor Downstairs, keeping the carpet after all

We thought we had a concrete refinishing contractor coming to give us an estimate. Four times. I take the flake as a message from God. We are keeping the carpet, despite the disgusting things it has lived through. Either we’ve gotten used to the smell or it has dissipated. We have to finish moving in and settling into this house. I cannot stand the piles and upheaval any longer. I need my office space.

So, for now, we’re keeping the carpet. Eventually, we may take a do it yourself concrete floor refinishing week. Reusing is the greenest choice anyway–we’re not sending anything to the landfill; we’re reusing; we’re not wasting electricity; throwing away paint cans; using chemicals; creating concrete dust; etc.

Still, it feels like we’re settling for less than we want. That’s okay, too. For now.
