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.

Also, note the paint chipping on the right wall because whoever built the house installed the drywall with nails, not screws. Grr.
