Pardon me for not sweeping. The carpet and padding are up and here's what we have. It's always dicey when you have an old house and carpet. There's no telling what you'll find.
How about a big honking hole to fix?Here was another floor furnace. At least this one is replaced with floor boards. Notice the singed wood around the edges. Scary!When all else fails, any old board will do.
Again, just find anything that sorta fits and shove it in there. I spy a little old termite damage.
Have I mentioned that I hate tack strip? It's evil, nasty stuff. It bites and doesn't apologize. Fortunately this is the last of it. I can see some creative doings to make this mess look decent.
Overall, we're tickled with the shape of the floors. It could have been much worse. We've done the floors in four other rooms and they turned out just gorgeous. I don't see any reason why these won't as well.
Who wants to help haul carpet off? Anybody? Hello?
