Start of the flooring project

In this weekend’s standard deviation from otaku life, I’ll be installing some new laminate wood flooring in the downstairs entryway. Over the course of the past week, I’ve had to tear up the existing carpet, remove the padding underneath, and rip up the tack strips for holding the carpet in place. Once that was all done, I could start the clean up process and fill in the holes and cracks in the concrete. Lastly, I had to clean up parts of the floor with bleach cleaner to get rid of the cat urine smell that had soaked through the carpet and padding… If all goes well, I’ll have more pictures to post later this weekend. I’ll also try to document the stages of the project, time permitting.

Spot the Kitty!
