Oh what a day!

 This morning we met the guy from installment who was giving us an estimate for our bamboo floors.  Then, we made a 50% deposit on just the installment.  OMG... I knew that was going to be the bulk of our budget because we're doing over half of our flooring with bamboo... but geez... I was stunned!    It's gorgeous right?  All beaten up and rustic looking.  :)
We chose the floating bamboo floors in "Sufong Palace" from Lumber Liquidators but it is almost $5.00 per sq ft.  Crazy... right?  So I'm looking for something similar but a bit less expensive.

Then we went to Lowe's.  
We made the arrangements for estimates to be made for carpet on the stairs, upstairs hall, and all 3 bedrooms as well as for our patio door.  We also purchased our awesome counter-tops.  We chose the DuPont Corian, solid-surface counter in "Oat".  The awesome associates at Lowe's got us a great deal and in talking with Corian corporate got them to throw in a free sink! :)  I'm so excited to see it in place when our cabinets are completed.  (A sample is on the right.)

Shout out to the Lowe's on Washington Rd. in Evans, GA!!!
