our house | the first cuts

You have seen the tour, now its time to get into the reno! 
The carpets were the fist to go as they were holding the smell of a thousand cats and dogs, yuck. Under that we found fiber board filled with nails and all the animals favorite pee spots, double yuck! But we were elated when we saw the original wooden floors underneath!!!

Then we moved to the kitchen and kept our fingers crossed.. under the sub floor, MAPLE! 
It took 4 people, and a custom made tool via Mike's brother, 8 hours to pull them all up in preparation for refinishing. Stay tuned!!
