Home Project Part 2: The Entryway

Old vinyl tile floor

New floor in progress
In the entryway of our den (which goes outside to the front of the house), we have had vinyl tiles. Over the past couple of years since they've been installed they've stopped sticking entirely to the floor, and lifted a little and that's not a good thing when you're coming in and out. 
  - Of course vinyl tiles near an outside door will always be exposed to more temperature extremes than the rest of the flooring, so that was likely a cause for the issue.
New floor installed!
  Since we had decided to re-do the floor in our upstairs bathroom, and we really liked the Porcelain ceramic product (and it's available at Lowe's) so we had the same contractor install it in the front entryway of the den, too.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
