Bamboo Snafu

Ugh. Our flooring came in, so Brandon and I went to Lowes to pick it up. Twas the wrong type of floor.

When we ordered it, we asked plenty of questions about installation (noting that we were going to do it ourselves), and we knew that we wanted to do a floating installation. I don’t think a nail-down or glue-down floor is within our skills, and that’s exactly what was ordered.

Well, it turns out that the floating, click-together type of floor was more expensive (+ $600!). We ended up getting it for the same price as the other stuff though, since it wasn’t our mistake. So thanks, Lowes. You both frustrate and calm us.

Now our floors won’t arrive for another 10 days.
