So it begins
"We are being proactive, people. We are getting things done."
--Wag The Dog
Buh-bye, ugly tile. You won't be missed.
Don't laugh, ugly carpet. You're next.
A cold chisel and a big heavy hammer actually make pretty quick work of chipping out tile, though I don't recommend starting the job at 11:30 pm. Once the 25 sq. ft. of old tile has been chiseled out, we start on pulling out carpet. Then we'll lay a new and improved tile entry and a separate hearth. Then comes the wood.
Stay tuned for more exciting home renovation updates. Next time: I wonder why my arms are sore the morning after enthusiastically wielding a hefty mallet.
