A Father-Son Project
On monday and tuesday our son Todd and my husband Steve were at my Mom and Dad's house installing the hardwood flooring my Mom has wanted for such a long time. She has always loved them and the rather worn, stained carpeting that was in the little house they bought made her rather sad. So my Dad decided to make her wish for new floors come true.

Both of our sons have worked with my husband from the time they were very young, building our home, doing restorations, church projects and over the years building several other homes. It is amazing to see the skill they have acquired. On this project my husband let Todd be the "lead man" while he took the role of assistant. My husband could not be prouder of the job he did. Have a look...

The finished kitchen floor....

The livingroom....

The tired assistant...

A beautiful job well done - and one happy Mom!

So pretty! Wish my floor shinned like that. Todd is a good name. My oldest son shares that good name (o:

Oh my, what a wonderful job Todd and your husband did putting the hardwood floor in...it looks just gorgeous! I'm hoping to some day have such flooring throughout my house!! Your mom must have been super thrilled with the results:-) xoxo

They did an exceptional job, Linda. I've never seen a more professional looking result. It's gorgeous and I'd be tickled to have that flooring in my apartment.

I had no idea that you had such a talented group of men in your midst. Beautiful floors! What a lovely gift.

That is great work! Those floors are beautiful. Glad your mom will be able to enjoy them.

Many sweet blessings!

The house looks absolutely gorgeous. DC would love to have hard wood floors someday. My niece with the log home (I'll be writing about in later this week) has them as well. Rally pretty.

A nice job done indeed. What a blessing that family could do that for her.

What a beautiful FLOOR! I know she is thrilled! I love a hardwood floor :)

We are off this afternoon for a Sister's Retreat....but it is raining...say a prayer for good traveling!

Love you!
