I downloaded the Planning Steps spreadsheet from your Free Software Gallery. It was incredibly helpful. Thanks.

It may be a little early, but we ordered the wood flooring today. The only reason we ordered it now was, well two reasons: first, they said it could take up to 6 to 7 weeks for it to come in (but sometimes only two weeks) and second, we had the money to pay for it now. Got 1,100 sq. ft. of flooring and supplies for $1,300. We decided to go with wide plank rustic floors. I have always wanted this look, but had a hard time convincing Mike of it. After looking at several pictures and seeing some he really liked, plus reading many reviews from others that have gone this way, he decided it would work.

I would have loved to have some of our barn siding pulled off, refinished, and used for flooring. It's aged and looks wonderful, but the cost to mill it is way out of my budget. (The barn was re-sided with metal over the old barn boards so the barn would still have sides if we removed some.) Instead we went with new wood that is 7" wide in tongue-and-grooved planks 6 to 8 feet long. We liked the 9-foot boards too but opted to save the $500 cost difference and go with the smaller size. We'll leave them rustic with a medium to dark stain. We were a little worried about them clashing with the kitchen cabinets, which are maple with straight lines and a more modern look, but we figured unless you're cooking outside over an open fire, kitchens are modern and can have elements that look that way even in a country cottage. I guess we'll see, because it's on the way. Now, if we could only get the insulation and drywall done before the flooring gets here, everything would be perfect! Anyone have $10 grand we could borrow?
