    Spent all night moving shit.
    Even though the crew will be ripping out the old, laying the new and moving heavy furniture, good gosh, you don't realize how much shit there is to move! Between 4 bedrooms, hallways, living room.... Nicknacks, art, lamps, TV's. Fuck, when did we get all this stuff?
    The part I must admit I'm looking forward to is when the shit is ripped up. I can't wait to see what's under it- decaying old ground up carpet, dust, dirt. Maybe nice hardwood flooring? Don't think so though.
    After moving everything back the first thing I'm doing is changing the furnace filter.

    I did my house in travertine to avoid this. Area rugs. That's the way to go. However! My friend pulled up her carpet to find a cedar floor! It looks bitching. But I also have to say new carpet is the best. So fresh and makes the whole house look great. Your hard work will be worth it.

    I will never have carpet in my house. Traps everything, looks terrible after a short amount of time, known to aggravate allergies, and god forbid you have pets. Hardwood lasts forever, never goes out of style, easy to clean. Just my opinion.

    I only have one room in the entire hose that is carpeted, the TV room. On the main floor, I have a high gloss stone floor that's so smooth, I actually clean it with a blade scraper. When I vacuum, if there's anything on the floor, I just scrape with the hand scraper and the blade slides on the floor and instantly picks up anything that doesn't belong like if the kids spill something around the dining room table.

    I had carpeting in my bedrooms, but after 10 years of increasingly dirty fabric, I had hardwood floors installed last year.
