Kitchen Renovation

As I am sure some readers have noticed, my blog has been neglected recently and there is a very VERY big reason.
I started the demolition/renovation on the kitchen!
Last week I pulled up 220sq feet of glued down hardwood. I loved those floors, but after two leaks ruined them we had to say bye bye.
Here I am starting to pull up in the kitchen.  We are putting handscraped hardwood down here.
I did it all with a hammer and a screwdriver.  Sounds was, but it was also the way that worked best for me.  Here's a little demonstration of how I did it board by board.  I used my phone propped up, many apologies for the narrow screen.
This about sums up my experience in pulling up 220sq feet of glued down hardwood:

Helping Mama:
About to be tiled!
First cut with the wet tile saw...this was fun until I had to do about 20 more...
Getting there:
Back buttering the very last tile!  YAYAYAYAYAY!

 And in she goes!

Now time for grouting...ugh
Stay tuned! Registered & Protected

Goodness, that's a lot of back-breaking work! It looks awesome already though -- your efforts are going to pay off big time!

Wow, and you did all the hard work? Kudos to you, girl! Good choice on the tiles. I can see that the texture is a little bit rough and smooth. It’s just perfect for a kitchen floor, since it’ll enable you to move freely without the risk of tripping down.
