We masked up everything to try and deal with the dust, but apparently they now come with giant dust collection systems, so the dust really isn't too bad.
Jeff and I had to go and do some scraping in the master bedroom closet. We had to get thick bits of linoleum and adhesive off the fir before they could go in with the sanders.
There is quite a difference between the before and after sanding.
WOW! That really is a big difference! I really need to install hardwood floors in my house. We have the tools that we bought (or borrowed?) from a friend, and we would like to install the floors ourselves. I think I'd like to try to start in a small area, like our closet, then our bedroom, and work our way around the house. Since half the cost is labor, I think I'd like to have as much done by us as possible.ReplyDelete
Amazing! It just bugs me to no end that someone put linoleum on top of gorgeous hardwood! You have beautiful floors, I can't wait to see them when they're done. Do they have awards in your area for people who restore homes in the manner & capacity that you & Jeff have? If so, you & Jeff need to receive one!ReplyDelete
Oh I forgot to say that I love that dust collector thingy!ReplyDelete
I have no idea whether there are any local awards for restorations. I wouldn't even know how to apply. Our contractor won some awards for the restoration--I don't think they even mention who owned the house or paid the bills, which seems strange to me. Maybe I'll post a list at some point, but it seems a little weird to post someone else's awards as our own.ReplyDelete
