I am sure I have made you aware by now that our house is lacking in the floor department. The only room that has a decent floor is the full bathroom. The rest of the house is riddled with urine soaked plywood, buckling and broken engineered wood, cracked tile, and cement. Sadly, there are no gorgeous diamond in the ruff hardwood floors hiding underneath, so we need to get flooring for basically the entire house.
We decided to go with a 4 inch red oak in Dark Walnut because I wanted it to have a been-there-forever-cottage feeling. In order to cut costs, we agreed to do all the prep work before the flooring guys came in to lay and finish the floors. Which for us meant that all of the subfloors ad to be even and clean. No big thang, right? But of course there’s a surprise! The kitchen, entry, and half bath floors all had three layers of flooring before we could reach the original subfloor. So there was work to do…and work we did!
Here we are working on the Kitchen Floor, in the meantime taking out the peninsula and removing wallpaper:
This is Brian after we took out the half walls:
Another few days for us to work on the entry tile:
There’s no turning back now!
