8" versus 7" wood flooring....big deal or get over it?
The first thing we picked out for our build, many months ago, was 8" oak flooring. Love the wide plank look, and perfect for the large scale of the house. They bid it and we accepted the bid and I've fantasized about my floors for this whole time. But they just told us, now that it's time to order, that the 8" isn't available anymore as production decreased in response to the recession. They can get 7".
My husband is a landscape contractor so I know this does happen in terms of supply drying up. I like this outfit as it is family owned. Is this a "just get over it!" situation, or a "just do more research and see if you can get is from someone else" situation? I'm incredibly tight on time with job and family responsibilities, so there's a cost to that research time...
What would you do?
