Still have heard anything from the IRS – you didn’t think they worked on the weekend, did you? While we wait, we’re doing a little research into some of the renovating we’d like to do at the house.
All the flooring will have to be replaced and hubby and I have decided that we don’t want any carpet, just wood and tile. I can’t remember the last time I lived in a house that didn’t have carpet – maybe when I was a kid, before carpet was invented – haha.
I have learned that bamboo is a grass, not a tree, and that it grows relatively quickly, making it a more “green” resource to use. Strand bamboo is made by shredding the bamboo and forming the planks under great pressure, making an extremely hard flooring. I have also learned that there is carbonized bamboo, which gets a lot of negative reviews because it scratches and dents easily – with one kid, 4 dogs, and a cat, we’ll be steering clear of carbonized!
If anyone has any comments or suggestions about wood or bamboo flooring, please post them – I would love to hear them!
