Floored!

Our first order of business after getting the keys to the house: Removing the gnarly carpet from every room. When we first looked at the house, the wood floors appeared to be in good shape, but we weren’t totally sure what was hiding beneath all of that carpet. So we held our breath (literally—there was some crazy dust happening) and got to rolling.

That carpet may have been ugly, but we can thank it for protecting these floors for the last 50-odd years. Besides a few spots, the floors are in fantastic shape, and not having to refinish them will help us save a lot on this renovation.

Anyone in the market for some “vintage” carpet? We’ve got quite a bit of it stored out in the shed. Let us know, we’ll make you a deal.

    THE WOODWORK AROUND THE WINDOWS AND DOORS IS BEAUTIFUL! I WOULD LEAVE THE CEILINGS ALONE AND PUT THE MONEY AND LABOR INTO OTHER AREAS! COULD THE TOILET IN THE BATHROOM WITH THE CLAWFOOT TUB BE TURNED AROUND TO MAKE A LITTLE MORE ROOM BETWEEN THE TUB AND THE TOILET? THE FLOORS ARE BEAUTIFUL! WHAT A FIND UNDER THOSE CARPETS!! I WOULD REPLACE THE POCKET DOORS IF AT ALL POSSIBLE! I BET THE WINDOWS WOULD BE FINE TOO JUST LEAVING THEM AS IS! THAT KITCHEN SINK IS BEAUTIFUL! I WOULDDO EVERYTHING I COULD TO WORK IT INTO THE REMODEL! CAN’T WAIT TO SEE MORE PICTURES! TODD, TELL YOU MOM AND DAD I SAID HELLO!!!
