Going into the formal dining room

From the kitchen to the hall way that lead to the bedrooms

Tonight Ben finished the Carpet!!! I am SO thrilled to have it done!

Step 1.

Tried to use the staple gun and new staples that Mark went and found for us

-the staple gun wasn't strong enough to get it through the carpet when rolled & padding down to the floor

Step 2.

Leah suggested trying out the nail gun EVEN if Ben thought it wouldn't work.

Step 3.

Ben tries nail gun with smaller nails, doesn't work so well.

Step 4.

Ben found largers nails and it worked!

(hopefully it can with stand the wear & tear but it seems VERY secure.

(I put all the steps on here for Mom & Dad Wentzel because they have been with us through this whole process and I knew they would be curious and laugh about it)
