Last time on our home improvement saga, we added more money for grading and drying out the basement. Well, we just added more for new carpeting.
Last week, H called me at work to tell me that the restoration company wanted over $500 to stretch and place our old carpeting back in place. I really didn’t want to have to spend that much just to lay our old carpet back down. Our old, urinated on, vomited on, formally water-logged, not in great shape carpet.
So, now we are spending $1300 for brand spanking new carpet. Honestly, even though it costs more I feel better about spending the money on new carpet rather than the crappy old stuff. However, we are not replacing the carpet on the side door landing and two steps to the kitchen. Eventually we are going to lay down vinyl for an additional $475.
We are going to put off the vinyl and the new front porch until spring to save up the money. I can’t wait for all this to be over.
