Today was the first full day of wood floors in the home office. The carpet was old and sort of nasty, and we're slowly pulling it up throughout the house. Only one room remains carpeted at this point. We've been really fortunate as every room has had pretty nice wood floors underneath. Probably could use a bit of refinishing, but we really like them. Monty (shown here) apparently approves as well.

ok. here we go. Underneath a gross ruby red carpet was linoleum. Underneath the Linoleum was this hardened plastic goo called mastic. It was appied directly on top of old porous and unfinished wood floors and left there to ferment. The tack marks you see are my manual scrapes with a scraper trying piece by piece to get it up. You can't sand it, because it just heats up and melts.
