Found this pic this evening of a floor laid horizontally so I know I am not crazy. I also stopped by Show & Tell this evening and Sausha has her floors laid that way as well. Click to see her space! It is amazing!
So do you think I am crazy? What would you do? Do you think it would be easier to lay it horizontally??

|Paula and I have been busy!|
|My trusty side kick who insisted he could help. I made him wear his sunglasses just in case stuff went flying and trust me when I say it did from time to time.|
|Here he is busy working on the grout line.|
|Can you believe it!!?? He actually got a piece of it off all on his own. I think we may have a future DIYer on our hands.|
|What a MESS! Abt every 10 minutes I would stop and sweep up everything. I just could not work in a mess. Took more time but gave me peace.|
|Bye Bye old granite tile!|
|Between yesterday and today it took approx 4 1/2 hours to complete the rip out. Not to bad. All I had to work with was a hammer and screw driver and a 5 yr old!;)|
|Oh no, that will not do! I can see a cat or two being nosey and going in there.|
|Easily remedied till we get some new fire safe backer board put up. S for which direction we are going thanx for voting! I wanted to see what y'all thought and it was pretty much unanimous! Faux stone it is!|
|This weekend I see ripping out of carpet to prepare for this stuff and hopefully tiling one fireplace! Yes, we are a tad crazy but this is the year of doing for us!|

|Here is a pic of the granite tile that is on our fireplace surround. It is the same granite we have in our kitchen. I want to know what y'all would do with it. Do you think it goes with the new flooring?|
|Here is the other option we came up with.|
|Would you rip the granite out and do the faux stone tile or just leave the granite in place?|
|One last pic. I will put a poll on my sidebar!:) Please feel free to not only vote but to leave comments on what you would do. I am also taking any other suggestions as well!:)|

The Hubster woke up this morning ( I write this morning but mean Saturday since it is already after midnight!) and got a wild hair! He wanted to see if our wood flooring was glued/nailed down. I had remembered that a piece of molding was popping off in the dining room.
|One thing led to another! So what do ya think!?|
Hope your weekend is going well!
