Disclosure: I was compensated for this post. However, it was completely written by me and contains my opinions.
Now, I mentioned a couple of months ago that living in an older, mid-century house is not easy or fun. Really, it's not. If it's not one thing tearing up, then it's another. There's always something going wrong or falling apart, or something new that needs to be repaired. It feels like a never ending cycle sometimes.
Last year, it was the shower in the small bathroom that needed replacing. A shower that our contractor described as having "come over on the Mayflower". Yep, it was that old. And leaky. And wobbly. You might say, that every time I stepped foot in it was an adventure.
The floors in both bathrooms also needed replacing due to severe rotting, the central air unit finally breathed its last, and we needed new insulation throughout the house, too. By the way, I can tell a big difference since the insulation was added. Until the polar vortex last week, we hadn't even needed a fire and we've barely turned the heat on either.
Then, of course, we needed flooring put down in the bathrooms to replace the old. It was scheduled to be put down sometime after Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, the tile installer is really behind and still hasn't gotten to us. Which is a complete bummer because I picked out the prettiest walnut colored wood tile that I'm in love with. Actually, Bryony helped me pick it out. She has good taste.
All I can say right now, is that I wish I had known about BuildDirect before picking it out. They have an amazing wood tile selection available to choose from. Not to mention, laminate flooring, hardwood, carpet, and a whole lot more. Too much, in fact, to name it all. I could spend hours on their site browsing and coming up with ideas for the house. And I have today.
Just read the BuildDirect reviews. Their customers are overwhelmingly happy with the service they've received. Some of the highlights of those reviews mention super fast shipping, great prices, and excellent customer service. You can also check out their Facebook page here.
