They said 2 days, actually 1 day plus a couple hours the next day. Deep into Day 3 and while I can't see what the heck they are doing at this point, work continues and shows no sign of let up.
Here's where we began (these photos actually don't show how truly yucky these floors are)
|Flat, nasty pet hair covered carpet|
|Peel and stick tiles!|
Here's where we are as of 5 minutes ago!
|It's through out the kitchen and great room|
The flooring is hand scraped stranded bamboo - which is a fancy way of saying renewable resource, won't show scratches cheaper than fancier kinds of hardwood! We went dark because I wanted something to fit with vintage:

|House Beautiful layout 1968 - had to share because they are so similar|
Hours later update: The men are gone, I have to run out to get the right kind of floor cleaner, pads for the furniture and... I really would like some mid-mod end tables! The hidden cost of home improvement... it makes everything un-improved look so shabby... and not in a good way! Will be back to "normal" in a day or so... I hope.
