Re: Wood Flooring Question

In For the Home Talk 1408988525.5

Get prefinished flooring. It is quicker and easier for you. Also, get quotes from at least three suppliers. Have them separate out the cost of materials and labour. Some companies give you a good deal on flooring and kill you with high labour. Take a floor plan when you shop. The sales people are very knowledgable and can help you choose. I use tile in very high traffic areas like entry doorways and high traffic halls as wood shows wear much more readily than tile. Talk to your salesperson about transitioning from one type of floor to another. Should look natural and seamless. Although some p... Continue Reading


Re: Concept2 Indoor Rowing: Do you row?

We own this rowing machine as well. It is a real workout. When we use the gym while travelling, the rowing machines are usually free. I always tell my husband that I feel like a big nap after using it. The elliptical (Octane 37) is my main choice. Good for you Sidsmom on setting goals! LM Continue Reading

Jackielee, I hope you make it to Nova Scotia also. The motto on our license plate is 'Canada's Ocean Playground'. You are never far from the sea in the Maritime Provinces. I was fortunate enough to make it to California for a trip which I really enjoyed. Hope to make it back some time. Here is one of my interesting memories. I ate at a high end seafood restaurant and ordered scallops. They were delightful so I asked where they came from. They were caught in the Gulf of Maine which is a resourced fished predominantly by Nova Scotia fishermen and fishermen from the US east coast. I thought it w... Continue Reading
