Goodbye Carpet!

I removed the carpet from my living and dining room today.

It took a few hours of moving stuff around, cutting sections and then rolling them up. I also pulled up the tack strips and all that good stuff.

That’s my backyard right now. Bulk trash is this month and I’ll move it curbside in a couple weeks.

It was nasty work. I saw clouds of what was probably popcorn ceiling plaster as I pulled. I guess I was fortunate that whoever installed, just glued the perimeter. Scraping was gross.

Next stop will be engineered floors.

This was the largest span of carpet in the entire house. The bedrooms will be cake compared to today.
