If you read our last post, you saw our next project was going to be the built-in unit for our living room. That idea is still on the "to do" list, but has been bumped for now. Instead, we installed hardwood floors on the main floor of our home (kitchen, living/dining room and half bath). After 22 wood samples, and plenty of visits to Lumber Liquidators, Home Depot and Lowe's, we finally decided to purchase our hardwood flooring from Build Direct. As I searched many blogs for floor ideas, I found a couple that mentioned purchasing from Build Direct for a fraction of the cost. Just to give you an idea of pricing per square foot:

Home Depot and Lowe's: $4+
Lumber Liquidators: $3.30+
Build Direct: $2.50+ (you do have to pay shipping)

Although we have only had the floors for a month, we are very pleased with the color, quality of the wood, customer service and we feel it is very comparable to the other options. We chose the Handscraped Truffle Birch floor. 

As always, all of our projects are possible because of friends and family that help us out! Thanks to Eric and Jess and Justin's dad for all of their back-breaking support!
