The beginning.....All the slipcovers were taken off the furniture and the rugs were shrink wrapped to keep from getting ruined.
Then the kitchen was packed up and temporarily moved into the dining room. The dining room furniture was moved to an upstairs bedroom.
The refrigerator and two pantry cabinets along with the upper cabinets have been removed to expose the utility room. This is where the new heating and cooling system will go.
We have decided to update the heating and cooling system in our house. This will require that part of the kitchen floor be removed for access to run pipes and etc. To say the kitchen floor in our kitchen was ugly is truly and understatement!!!! It was a faux white marble floating floor that had glue stains from where the glue oozed out of the seams when it was poorly installed. It was extremely unlevel and impossible to keep clean! Underneath the floating floor was a layer of floor leveler. Underneath the layer of floor leveler is an old linoleum floor. Underneath the old linoleum floor is an old tile floor!!! So far we have the old floating floor taken up....next we will tackle the floor leveler issue working one layer at a time. Eventually new cabinets and granite counter tops will be installed and reclaimed maple flooring will be laid to match the rest of the first floor. Should be interesting....I'll keep ya updated!
