we found really nice wood flooring under our carpeting, but there is a 2' by 2' area against the wall, right in front of a window where they replaced the wood with the same kind of wood, but thinner wood. Is there any way to fix this so it looks nice, we are getting ready to sell, or should we just carpet the room?

It sounds as if you have a traditional wood floor. If so, the answer is yes, it can be repaired. The wood can be matched exactly if you have a closet or other room that replacement boards can be salvaged from (and replaced with less matching boards of the proper thickness). After replacement, the floor will need sanding with special floor sanders and then refinished. For the best match, it is best to refinish the entire room. If you are not an experienced handyman, this might be a job for professionals. If you are selling, it probably won't pay to fix the floor. Just carpet over and let the buyer deal with it.
