OMG We Did This Wrong! | OMG We Bought A House
Previously, on OMG. Weave out how we have some really exciting news, we bought AHA, oh the. Master bedroom is where it's at this is like why I wanted. This house it's big it's got this really cool a dog, he's fresh door I hate the floors it has been raining non-stop ever. Since we got that driveway, out and now our, yard, is just one giant mud. Pit. Can't. Wait, to decorate. There's. So much we can make. How will it turn out. OMG. Me box house. Kate. Door coming. OMG. We bought a house episode. Five million, a million plan - wait, - uh-huh we. Are doing, a lot. Today guys we have done so much in this house we're like basically, at, the end I know we've been saying that but we really truly are well, what we've learned lit being homeowners of that it's really hard to end it there's always new and different things to do right yeah, and there's you know what there's a lot of redoing. You. Make mistakes, especially, when you do a lot of things yourselves you make a lot of mistakes we're gonna come clean today guys we're going to come clean on our mistake we're calling this episode, oMG. WTF. OMG. We. Did this wrong can you say with a little bit more, well. No I'm not. Excited. About I'm like OMG we. Did so. As first-time, homeowners, we've learned a lot and we thought it would be really helpful for you guys and also. Potentially. Humorous, to, witness. Some of our mistakes you guys remember when we first moved in we, had those red floors, in our master, the floors are brand new door, nice and shiny I thought they were veneer, I thought they were like fake wood, floor because they're so, darn shiny they're solid. Hardwood so the plan is to refinish. Them I didn't, mind them that much at, first but I came, to load them with Kate over the years and. The reason why they're different than the rest of the house is because the master bedroom was an extension, and the sixties so, they decided rather than doing the, small plank oak floors, that are throughout the rest of the house they, did these, weird, shiny, records. And the, mistake we made as we never replace them we were just like you know it, seemed like too much to tackle at the time. But. We. Wish we had changed them, we finally are changing it because we're finally taking out in five years later we came across this company rebel Woods who, we've, been talking to they're sponsoring, this and, they. Are, the. Coolest company actually the, things so intimidated, about doing, your floor's it's such a process right you have to go to the flooring, store you have to talk to sales people who don't they're, not really the nicest what. Is a good quality floor, like what should you spend your money on so, the whole thing with this company is they're disrupting, the flooring industry because. You can buy it all online, leverage. Dot. Okay. Get, started, let's. See here, so basically we take a quiz enter. Our project, name we, love a quiz it, gets to know you and, then Delta. I, guess the little man that lives inside the computer, it, gives you some suggestions, of flooring, that you might like. Well. We could put it in. What. Is the level activity, in this space know. I'm, gonna be sleeping. You get just like four different woods and they send you, samples. Of each of them oh okay, traditional. American contemporary industrial, rustic, and, not American, traditional, because. This is like an English storybook, house so, probably, like. Let's see like. Light wood medium. Or light clink I think. A white plank will be cool in there sure, because like do our house. Yeah. Okay. Let's. See what they recommend. Okay. Yeah, okay, so let's get a sample of that. That. Would be so Airy that's. A sample box what. Else do you want to try to get I like naughty. Okay. Good samples. It's a box like. This I inside. Although. That's, a little brown right yeah. I don't want because.
Also Like ooh peace bomber okay, that great, okay so then they've, got four samples, great, they'll, send us the samples, will side on the final, place, the order it's finally, happening. See. If we went to the store we'd. Now be like okay, we gotta go like fine now. Do. You be really stinky. Samples. Will just show up. Alright. I think I'm just gonna stay here should they enjoy the Nook. Wake. Me up when the samples, arrive I, love. All the samples of you picked so we got them all in our, little sample kit, and we. Had a variety of finishes, we, did some, like darker, ones some more rustic ones and then some, really light ones because, I have, this fantasy, of turning, the master bedroom, into just this like beautiful. Beachy. Really. Light. And airy room because, it has some, of the best light in our entire house with a gorgeous French, door and I ultimately picked the winnipeg, as a whitewashed. Look it almost has like a Scandinavia. Vibe to it so floors. Truck, delivery. Your. Shoe closet was never looked so good. I. Emptied. My closet. Cake. Gave up, so. I took out all of my clothing and put it in boxes I figured that would collect more dust, shoes. However I'm, oh, you're. Making this sound like it was a calculated. Plan. And. Not just you also, know, what I'm. Over this keeps, good it I'm gonna take half the stuff out of my closet and, put plastic over the other stuff, like. A big giant trash, bags and cut them bigger, and then you know it worked, all, right guys. Say. Goodbye. To. The red floors. Installation. Of all, its. Steampunk, vibes, guys, because. Why not one, last, floor. Cuddle, on the, red floors for good measure oh. I'm. Sweaty from the Haggadah category. We. Did one last rug cuddle, on the rad wood floors wood, cut off a wood cut oh yeah there there was no rock I mean, look we're hard on the red wood floors but. Like it's time to send them to college, yeah. We're gonna we're, gonna rip, them out. You. Know somebody's. Gotta throw, the kid, out of the house. So. You just demo out your old floors these floors were installed. With just nails into the wood, subfloor. We. Have our moisture. Tester, because. You want to make sure with, wood. Floors that you're not crazy. Moist. Okay. So. Let that hang out for a little bit pick up the moisture reading it's, a more, humid day in LA so it's gonna be a little higher but you want to in like between you know like 35, to 55, percent. Humidity or, scientists. You. Want to make sure it's just the, right amount of. Moist. No. Not, with a list, do not waste no. No. Sorry. I mean. No. You. Want to make sure it's not moist. Because. Obviously if there's moisture, your. Was, can, move, but that's, it, this. Is a technical. Term yeah because they space seats well you. Know what movin, swell no, no, they're, engineered, hardwood floors though so that's not as much of an issue fortunately. For us the. Subfloor, is in great shape there's, already a plywood subfloor really, thank you in. The 1960s. You're in. It lasted a while so now that we have the wood demoed out it's time to dry fit it is so. Dry fitting is basically, where, you take your wood, and you make a layout but more importantly, you're, cutting, your, edges. From one wall so that you see like we have like our doorway. Yeah. The doorway molding you. Made funny for, these and now you need them, safety. First Louise and gentlemen. They're. Comfy, huh. Go. Around, where. The room. Corners, right there we just gotta cut it around the molding and when you're driving just. Make sure that you're leaving, you know enough space for your. Boards. To, move. A little bit because the more you sometimes, go like this if, the. Moisture. Here, alright so the way we're attaching these forces we're using this sort of vapor blocking, glue. Which basically is this, really, heavy-duty. Glue. That, forms, a sandwich, in between your subfloor and your new floors and it serves a lot of purposes so.
We're Just putting that down we're placing the would have your soft. Mallet, Sadhna, has like a nice rubber end so obviously you're not damaging any of the wood please as you're hammering them into place but. Yeah they're all you, know a tongue, and groove yeah. I. Don't. Know what. They've. Got like a little lip. Yeah. So you just basically, puzzle-piece, your floor pieces together put, them into place and use your rubber, mallet, to get a man. Such. A huge difference in there right guys the floors look so good you just have to do some finishing touches yeah I'm gonna redecorate, a little bit in there so we welcome it into this universe though with our cuddle. Yes. Of course okay, so these. Floors are gorgeous yeah I didn't, want to distract. Too, much from them I just want to keep things neutral. Right. Neutral, bit neutral, like, an almost beachy, vibe let's. See it. This. Is a really soft dude, welcome, new. Winnipeg. Fluorine, you. Will put you rug on you but not too big of a rug a nice small. Braided. Jute rug, that's soft for bringing a little bit you, know keeping with the beachy feel I might also do a matching one of those over under the bed but slightly bigger but you know not too big to cover up your beautiful let's keep the room simple, of. Course. There. Was a story, of, a. House. Built. In, 1927. And. Go. OMG. We. Bought a house. Finally. Change. Floors, of your dreams oh thank. You. Unflattering. Doll, oh no, not, a spoon or the sort of nos is how we sleep in it like a side spoon. This. Is like a chip clip you know I have another one that matters a little bit bigger the clinic order the bet. To, take every. Once in a while enjoy. It. Are. You doing it all, right. Another. Big thing that we like. Were lazy on and, in. Hindsight should have fixed right away is we never had blinds on any of our windows yes. We. Saw in the comments, like how do you guys take showers, and the. Truth is is our backyard is pretty protected. So, except. When the gardener's come over so yeah yeah there have been a few times, you, close code where I've had to do the naked, duck, down you know I see the gardener's out there as I'm getting ready to go and. Disappear down, below, the window ledge so you guys know we're extra so we couldn't just get regular blinds, yeah, we got these nice linen. Roller, shades that are automatic. It's like my I made, it moment where I wake up and the wiser. All. Right so obviously that was a big project we finally, did it five years later but you know it sucks guys. We. Did something else wrong. Remember. Those beautiful floors, we put into the, garage. Remember. That big pond that we had back there at that point, where we were fishing for monsoon when our driveway, flooded yeah so here's the thing here's. Nothing about water. You move into a house it's 100 years old and you kind of just assume it's got all its kinks worked out we were like you know this worked before so like let's just put the driveway back in and slope it to the street and yeah nice, little downward, slope to the street little dream. So. Don't. Do that because. It. Didn't, do that and instead what happened is all of the ground got so soaked underneath. Our beautiful. Finished gym and that made. The, floor that was in there buckle. Where's. Your broom oh my gosh I can't believe, we're. Back to this I mean. And. Then. We. Do, so. What are we gonna do differently this time what, are you my teacher or. My parent what are you gonna do differently this time Joey what you I'm here with date, moisture. Is your enemy. The, problem was we didn't voiced your test before her which. Was. I. Will. Take that we, thought our concrete slab was dry we put a self-leveling. Concrete, on top to just level out those old floors and. That. Didn't bond correctly, because there. Was still moisture in the concrete so, we had to completely.
Redo. A lot of things the biggest thing we do is we have to rip up a lot of our yard and put in proper drainage. So. You guys remember we landscape and painting all, that grass and plants well we had to rip it up in places we'd have to rip it all out and places, we put in 16, drains throughout, our yard. And. It all correctly. Flows. Out. To the street which is where you want your water, to drain to not, under, your new, pretty, gym and we've moisture, tested the concrete, now, that we've removed the, entire subfloor, we have our whole garage now on our driveway, yeah we had to move out everything, that we put into the gym previously, it's all piled up in the driveway covered, with a tarp it's, also now currently 110. Degrees so. All of our equipment gotta melt. We're. Gonna match the fluorine from, the bedroom which is a good. It's. A good win and out of all of the losses of that and then, we'll. Have a finished gym I know again. Round 2 finished yet we'll be back in business in no time I promise I, think the lesson there is like when you see symptoms. Don't. Ignore them right we, thought it was fun to just like go fishing, in the pond while it dried out we should have been like. Alright. We've learned a lot of little things also. Along the way one, of the things that bugs me kind of on a daily basis but we're still too lazy to get the ladder out is when, we put up our chandelier in the breakfast nook leaves a beautiful ceiling, medallion, but. We didn't paint it well it was white but. What happened, is whatever. Material. It's made out of has sort of a yellowed, over, the floor no one told me four. Years ago that you had to paint sillier than a. Paintable. Ceiling we're really good its way we'll just put it up there and that is the highest peak in our house we need like the extra, tall ladder to even be able to get up there it's. Are we gonna take it down and painting, sure. Yeah. We should or, just get up there with a paintbrush you get up there were there was, a paint brush your arms are longer. Anyways. Paint, your ceiling medallions before you put them up play a big, journey of trial, and error in this house has been the cat's because. Everyone, near your very precious. Members. Of our family, yeah if you have pets the struggle is real you know the struggle the struggle is, how to not have your house smell like that right you, want people. To come over and, not know that you have that so, you just like appear and they're like oh my gosh you have a cottage. Because. They're either going. To the bathroom or they're foods out or whatever there's just all kinds of things to deal with yeah they're either like right. Going out there more eating fish. So. You guys remember that we our first saw was, to put the litter in a fake, closet. That we built and we upgrade, it to the cabinet, which the solve there was we actually, put a hole in our wall to the outside and gave them their own personal. Event yes this, is a game changer you guys so, now they have a vent that goes out to the outside world so whenever they go in there and do their stinky Duty this. Smell just waft out into, the outside world. The other big thing we got them were these really cool high-tech.
Microchip. Feeders, yes because we've had to quarantine Winston. Into the other room while he eats because try, it eat Roxanne's food so we found these really cool high-tech feeders, that read, the, microchip. That your pet should already have you, don't rip, your back chip. Them it's. Just a tiny little bead of rice they put in their necks. Yeah. So, they have feeders that read those chips and also, when they're done eating they close automatically, so they keep the small. Right. Guys the moment you've all been waiting for. Ready. Mister, great experience wine in your eyes on three one. Two. So. I've. Already done.
