More renovation madness
The floor project continues: today we present the kitchen, sans half the vinyl floor. Vinyl is not hard to remove -- just loosen with a crowbar and peel up. Unless the paper backing wants to stick to the slab, in which case one requires either adhesive remover or a heavy-duty sander.
Final analysis on taking up tile:
Chiseling up tile when it comes off in one piece with the mortar still attached to the back: kinda fun.
Chiseling mortar off the slab: not so fun, very dusty, and likely to leave the chiseler with aching joints and hands.
