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 crazy...it 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:
Mango saying her goodbyes to the last little bit:
About to be tiled!
First cut with the wet tile saw...this was fun until I had to do about 20 more...
Back buttering the very last tile! YAYAYAYAYAY!
And in she goes!
Now time for grouting...ugh
