REMOVING CARPET FROM THE SUNROOM

September 7, 2015

There are so many tasks we want to do in our house and many are little ones that would take less than an hour. And yet, we still have not gotten to them. Add it to the list! I am limited by being pregnant and of course David only works on house projects at nights and on weekends. It comes back to that same old word again: prioritizing. We do not mind; I like going slow to have time to think and research my vision for spaces.

While we were demo-ing tile in the entryway, our task was limited to baby wake times. (It is noisy chiseling through concrete!) We were sitting around during one of baby’s naps on a Saturday and we got to get to one of those aforementioned little tasks that would not take too long. We ripped up the carpet in the sunroom! Boy, did it feel good.

As expected, underneath was some 3/4 inch plywood. David started on it with the pry bar, which is probably a current favorite tool since we are removing baseboards, ripping up tack strips, and cracking away at tiles.

In hindsight, he would definitely not vouch for his choice to wear shorts and sandals for this task. As described above, it was spontaneous.

Look! Pretty planks!

It is great to have them all revealed. We will soon go over it with the shop vac, push broom, and even a power wash, which will only make it better.

I am not sure what is going on with the finish the planks have. Red paint? Some kind of old stain? Regardless, we plan to do a fresh glossy coat of all white (probably in the Spring).
