Troy wrote about tearing out the floor already, but I'll share a few more details.
Looking into the southeast corner before we started:
And looking into the north east corner:
There was one piece of flooring that didn't quite get pulled up (yet) in the corner.
Troy and David also found a wide gap between the kitchen and hallway to the dining room:
All the layers of linoleum were somewhat interesting. Obviously there was an aqua and white check pattern at some point:
The back of one of the layers had this basket weave pattern:
It's a big pain in the butt and a lot of time and work, but it does feel good to rip out all this crap and start "fresh" and right. (Yes, Troy feels very strongly about how you do and do not fix/remodel a house. It is a moral issue as far as he is concerned.)
We will be busy for the next while bagging the trash (thankfully today is trash day) and cutting stuff up into manageable pieces. And ripping up that last bit of diarrhea brown painted linoleum. Why would anyone ever?
