Winter Flooring Projects + More Library Work

Winter Flooring Projects + More Library Work

Before leaving for a Christmas vacation in Las Vegas, I’ve taken the past week to make progress on some ongoing projects and get materials ready for several other winter projects I’m planning on starting in January and February. First, I installed two more bookcases in the library:

The end result turned out as well as the first two once the books were put back!

The final five shelves and a new ladder will show up at the end of December, which will keep me busy for a couple of weeks. Aside from the library project, I purchased and hauled a huge amount of flooring for various projects. I’m going to be replacing the linoleum in the guest bathroom with the same tile that I used in the master bathroom remodel, and I’m going to replace the carpet in the library and the guest house with the same lifeproof plank vinyl that I used elsewhere in the lower level. Finally, I picked out new tile to replace the existing tile in the mud room, laundry room, and the kitchen bathroom.

It took multiple truckloads and several days, but all of the flooring is now staged in the guest house and ready to go for January and February.

Now I’m off to Vegas to enjoy some warm weather, and I’ll pick up these new projects in January!

That is a great way to start the day. Minimize doing all the things that are not connected with the things that you want to do because it can kill your time and you cannot do something about it. It’s really great that you start from two shelves and then finishes with shelves again.
