The carpet has to go. It’s been there way-too-long already, and it looks worse with every year that passes.
So, today I got out a measuring tape and quickly measured up all the rooms, adding to a more modest-than-expected total of about 64 square metres. It feels oddly satisfying that it’d be 64, because Chess and Computers.
I have made some enquiries about bamboo flooring, and it sounds like sub-$65-per-sqm for installation is do-able, and taking into account about 15% waste, that’d end up costing less than $5k.
Now I just need to figure out a way to get all the *things* and *stuff* out of the rooms. I have no idea where I am going to put it all during the installation. But I look forward to having nice wooden flooring all through the house this year.
