Normally, you would work from the top down. But in our case, the floor is the starting point for the kitchen renovation. Jeff only has another week or two of classes before he is out for winter break, so it's time to ease into the next big project.
I began by easing up the last layer of linoleum on our wood floors. We'd already removed two layers of vinyl and an underlayment of plywood this summer. We left the last layer of glue-down tiles so we would have something fairly tidy and neat for flooring in the meantime. But now it's time to get messy and dirty, so while Jeff was out of town, I began demolition. There is still much scraping to be done before we can sand, but I see peeks of pretty wood underneath!
