So Josh informed me he had better pictures of our first night ripping up the floor. Who knew? Apparently not the person who lives with him and was in the pictures... But here it is, the moments of zen..

This was how the floor looked after we removed two layers of linoleum and a layer of particle board. Check out the original handpainted floors, we wish we could have restored them!
Staples ssooo many staples.
Most people would NOT do this 4 minutes into owning their own home.
