floor update

I’ve got the dining room finished (trimmed out, etc.), and we’re starting the living room tonight. The problem is that our fireplace is rock and very rough. Our final solution is that we’re going to lay granite tile around the fireplace, then install the flooring up to that granite. That’s about Plan J. We probably won’t have the rock around the fireplace finished until later, though, as we’re going to have someone professionally install that. But, we should be able to have everything (other than the tile around the fireplace) done in time for the in-laws’ arrival on Sunday.
