The wooden flooring that was installed in my grandparents’ house is still at its best condition 60 years after the first plank was nailed in. This really shows the great workmanship of the builders before. Now barely a month after the builders installed the tile flooring at my house, it needs to be replaced already.
I should have gone with my instinct and went for the tile flooring. If I did I would not have the same problem I am now having. Reinstalling wooden floors cost more than the price I paid for installing the original wooden floors. The cost is just unbelievable.
I chose to have the contractors put in wooden floors because it reminded me of memories that I had at my grandparents’ house. Every time I step on the wooden floors I get reminded of the warm milk and chocolate chip cookies of my grandma. It reminded me of the countless games my cousins and I played. It reminded me of the dinners and lunches and the parties that used to be held there.
I guess after both my grandparents died, the house was not as great as it used to be. I only had the wooden floors to remind me of those great memories and I want those memories with me every single day.
