In another hour or so, PawPaw's personal space will be thrust into turmoil.  We're ripping out carpet and installing a new floor in the living room.  We're going with vinyl plank, which my floor-installer stepson says is very good flooring.  All the warmth and appeal of wood, with the durability of vinyl.  These things are in the box, laying on the living room floor, and the individual planks look like wood.  Stepson claims that they install it in commercial buildings, it looks great, lasts like concrete, resists scratching because the color is all the way though it, and is impervious to moisture.

Milady chose a Moroccan Oak color, the page is here.  It looks like this:

This is a long-awaited upgrade.  But, in the short term, we've got to move a lot of furniture so that the new floor can be installed.  Which means PawPaw's desk has to move as does most of the  furniture in the living room.  All that, including PawPaw's desk will reside in the garage for the next week or so.  If posting gets spotty, don't be concerned.  I'll be back in full force as soon as the new floor is installed.

Our friends installed the vinyl plank flooring in their house. Looks good and it is holding up well to foot traffic and the paw traffic of a number of Rottweilers.

After they took up the whelping box, they found some discoloration on the floor from box leakage. The discoloration went away pretty much on its own without them doing much.

Please keep the flooring job updates coming.
