Jeannette's dad and his wife drove down from Wisconsin this week to help Jeannette with her Valentine's Day gift from me: New flooring for the kitchen and dining area. When I was house hunting, Jeannette was very specific that she wanted a tile floor for the kitchen area and so I made that a priority. Once we got moved in, she decided she didn't particularily like this specific tile floor because it was hard to clean. But I'm not bitter or anything. Here's the before picture, from Thursday evening:
And Friday morning, Phil got to work. He laid a pad down right on top of the tile and put the wood over that . . .
With Jordan by his side. Jordan had been sick most of this week and stayed home with a fever on Thursday and Friday, but it wasn't enough to keep him away from the tools and sawdust . . .

It turned out very nicely, plus it's not nearly as cold on our feet as the tile surface was.
