Laminate Floor Update

So I can almost say we are done with the laminate flooring in our house.  Nick started on it about three weekends ago and has worked on it each weekend with his friend Mike and our dads and Nick's brother John.  Lets just say my house is still not totally put together but its getting there.  I can't wait till everything is back into its place and the whole house has a good sweeping and cleaning.  But on the upside we are so in love with it!!!  The house looks cleaner, bigger, and smells so much better.  I can see our allergies going way down.  We did laminate in our entire house except or the kitchen and the bathrooms.  So about 1150 square feet.  All we have left is the quarter round in our master bedroom and one wall in the piano room where all the equipment and leftover wood is.  Should be done I would say before June 1.  Then we will return any leftover material for a refund.  I have the best husband in the world and such great friends and family.  Nick just started a new job that is very physically intense but still comes home and slaves over these floors.  Lets just say he is super sore.  We couldn't of done this without Mike and his tools and knowledge and his wife and family for giving him up for a few weekends.  What great friends they are.  And then of course our dads and John - thank you for coming over on late nights to help and move furniture.  So here are pictures!  Our house is still a mess so these are before and after pictures and once we get our house in order I'll have even better after pictures!  If you have any questions please let us know - we totally recommend doing this and have lots of pointers.
