I wanted to thank everyone for your kind comments about our flooding situation. It has been so uplifting to receive such kind words throughout the day as we are trying to put our home back together.
The two areas hit were our basement and the lower level family room. The basement housed our playroom, laundry, and my temporary studio. Down the stairs everything is out while in the family room all of our new floors will need to be replaced. Darn water!
In staying positive, I have begun putting together design ideas for both spaces that will protect us in the future if any water dares to pay a visit again! The carpet in the basement was here when we moved in 6 years ago but new carpet will NOT be going back in. I found flooring for both lower levels that should last a lifetime and is also cost effective. It is tile that is created to look like wood.

As the ringing of fans and dehumidifiers sound throughout the house we are very close to being dry.

2~nothing is permanent
3~kids are resilient
