If you are a regular reader of my blog, and I hope you are, you know that we are in the middle to replacing the hardwood flooring in about 1/3 of our home, repainting and decorating the dining room and completely redoing our half bath. That means a whole lota demo.
But just look at how fast my husband is ripping out this flooring, he is a blur.
The floor was coming up easily but all the adhesive was stuck securely concrete flooring underneath.
The old flooring filled up the entire bed of my husband’s truck. And of course we hauling it off to the recycling center of our local dump, you know how I love the dump.
After hand scrapping only a small portion of the dining room my husband decided there must be a better way to get all the adhesive off of the concrete. And it has always been our experience that if there is a job we don’t want to do by hand someone rents a machine to do the jobs. So that is when my husband brought home a stripper.
And here she is. She made short work of all that adhesive and the thin set and grout from the tile in the bathroom but she was very noisy.
And since the girls don’t like noisy vibrating tools they spent the day hiding out in my bedroom venturing out only when it became quiet.
Next, the flooring goes down.
