Softer underfoot

Today was a big day. We got new Carpet cut in to Rafe after going bare floors since we first got Rafe.

White nylon carpet came with Rafe but they could probably be called mats as there were gaps up to several centimetres around each piece and being white, they were impossible to keep clean.

Fiona and I managed to clean them then we wrapped them up in plastic and stuck them in the “tomb” under our rented house with some of our furniture to sell with Rafe if/when we sell.

In the meantime, I bought a 3 metre offcut of Schist Godfrey Hurst Nylon and I have to say it looks heaps more practical.

Paul, my friendly carpet layer spent the morning here cutting it in and it looks the business. It should also be a little better in winter too with something softer underfoot.

After Paul finished, I made some rugs out of the leftover carpet.
I’ll get them overlocked and then we’re in business.

    1. Hi Sally, we ‘re just leaving it loose as there will probably be times where we will take them out and go without them. As it is good quality nylon, you can actually hang it on a fence and water blast it clean!
