After rooming about 7 billion staples and nails, I had nice bare floors - perfect for covering up with a nice dark laminate! The guys that came to install it were very nice and worked fast. I was so surprised to see how much they got done the first day that I couldn't imagine how it was going to take them 3 days.
The first day had 95% of the living room done.
Most of my bedroom and all of my closet was done.
The hallway & closet going to the kid's rooms was done and just a little way into Madison's room on the right.
All that was left was a small strip along each side of the kitchen going into the pantry!!
I love it! I still have to install the shoe molding but it looks so awesome!
