The first thing we did is remove the wall to wall carpeting and pad which left a very dirty sub floor.
…which, among other things, was covered with dozens and dozens of these anti squeak screws. Not very flat.
As usual, heavy metal was the solution. Much noise ensued.
A disturbingly beautiful image of carpet foam and dirty ductwork.
After a new coat of paint, freshly laid wood floor and a visit by the duct cleaners, it… actually doesn’t look as interesting.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves...
