We were getting close to carpet installation. We just had to fix a few of our stairs. Some step heights were bigger than others.

 

 

We also had a section at the bottom that had hard raised glue from the tile that was placed there before. Tater used a concrete sander to remove it. It created a nice layer of dust all over the house, but we were thankful we wouldn’t feel any bumps under the new carpet.

 

New electrical plugs were switched out. Floor ready for carpet.

 

 

Carpet in!

 

 

Kids already enjoying it…

 

That night, it stormed creating a perfect reason for a family slumber party in the basement.

 

Shortly after the carpet was laid, one of the girls came up from the basement with wet socks. We had water coming from somewhere. After 3 events of finding water and trying to dry the carpet back out, we finally found that it was a leak coming from a cracked iron filter tank. Although it was a pain and something that was not ideal for new carpet, it could have been worse. However, I may have squeezed a stress ball a little too hard one day and this is what happened. Oops! Life is not perfect and over and over again we have said… this world is not our home.
