Beautiful Wood Floors Found Under the Carpet

Beautiful Wood Floors Found Under the Carpet

A few years ago, while my wife and I were looking at homes to buy I had one thing that I really wanted, and that was nice wood floors.  So, long story short, every house we looked at, I looked under the carpet (in the corners of course) to see what type of flooring weas under there.  I was lucky, I found a nice place with beautiful Oak flooring, and this is the real stuff, not the fake looking and plastic feeling flooring and of today.  All the floor needed was a refresh: a good sanding to take away the carpet marks and a nice even shine thoughout the whole house.  There are many ways to accomplish this, do it yourself or hire someone.

City of Wyoming Looking for Ideas

Soon Wyoming will lose Klingman’s, a great store they had hoped would be the start of renewal for the southwest end of 28th St. Now the city of Wyoming is looking for ideas to help revitalize that retail stretch that has so many closed businesses and vacant buildings.

Wyoming’s “Turn On 28th Street” study is looking for ideas and input on a master-planning process they hope can help them revitalize 28th Street SW, west of U.S. 131. There is a makeshift studio in Rogers Plaza, staffed by project consultants, through December 22nd, asking for ideas.
