We have THE coolest landlords in Bellingham. They were ok with the chickens, ok with the gardens, paint and now this. When Tyree asked if we could rip out the nasty commercial carpet to expose the hardwood beneath they just said "more power to you." True, we are pretty mindful tenants, but it took some faith on their part. It feels great to get the hallway (stage one of 4ish) done. It took all of an hour.
