New carpet and tile

Trying to decide between large checks or small checks in the laundry/mud room. 

We tried to save on money and demo-ed the old carpet ourselves. The kids sure had fun yanking it off the tacks and rolling it up with the duck tape.

Woooo-eee! We've had some problems with the connection between the house and the septic tank. Its been raining so much, we haven't been able to dig it up to see what the problem is. Our contractor, Joe will send some of his guys, usually Shane or Ross, to pump it out (a few hundred feet out into the yard) every so often. But that is basically like sweeping the dirt under the rug. It provides aesthetic relief (which is nice!) but doesn't solve the problem. I can't wait for the rain to stop. 

Plumbers came and fixed the piping in the floor of the 1/2 bath off of the laundry/mud room where we changed the location of the toilet so we could fit a sink in there. 

Also, this week, the carpet came! I was pretty nervous about how it would look on a large scale. I feared it would be too dark and purple-looking. 

And the tile in the upstairs bathroom got put in! I love how Wade did it with the striations going different directions.

We are getting so close!!!!!!
