When we finally got around to laying the floors, the first thing that we did was lay them down to see what they would look like.
We were also not sure if we wanted to leave a section hardwood free for the non-existent foyer:
Not having a real foyer, we considered laying tile in the area but later thought that it would look a bit weird so we decided to take the floors all the way across.
Chris was entirely psyched to jump right in using his new snazzy power tools like this miter saw:
And this wonderful table saw that I got him for his birthday:
So needless to say, when the floors came in, it was time to cut...saw...whatever. No preparations needed...literally:
Yep, I know. Obviously I was nowhere to be found because this would not have been acceptable. Take a closer look...at the sawdust FLYING TOWARD HIS EYES!!
No, shoes, no mask, no protective goggles and from the looks of it almost no fingers! Gotta love this man, Mr. Invincible. I do understand his enthusiasm and as previously mentioned, we're good at showing you what not to do when you're DIY-ing.
However, this is unacceptable! We may not know all the rules but we know to use protection!! Most of us learned that in high school...he he he...(my apologies, sometimes I think I'm a comedian) Not funny huh? Ooookay, moving on!
When I got home I took care of things:
And trust me, he's wearing shoes this time. I know he isn't wearing a shirt but when you think about it, just how much protection would a bit of cotton provide him anyway? I was perfectly fine with him being shirtless with a power saw lol!
