As we went exploring the home improvement store, Jon saw some great flooring on sale. He said he'd put the Oak-colored laminate in the living room of our rental unit (Collun and Sarah Ellis' house) in a few hours. I wasn't as optimistic, and didn't believe it would be that easy... But He proved me wrong!! It looks super good too!
