Sunroom & Kitchen Demo- The Floors are Gone!

It’s done! The flooring in the kitchen & the sunroom in our 1800’s farmhouse that I blogged about the other day [HERE] is gone! Now the real fun can begin. I thought I would be more excited when the other flooring was gone, but we did encounter some not so pretty things & I guess when we took out the flooring in other areas of the house we discovered awesome original flooring from the 1800’s & this time it was pretty boring to only discover sub-floor…

Here was the space “before” we ripped the flooring out…


& after all the flooring was ripped out…

This part of our house was added on sometime in the later 1900’s with no hardwoods ever installed. The only thing I have yet to explore is if there is any cool flooring under the subfloor over the sunroom area off the kitchen by all those windows. That was the old porch so I’m wondering if there is something cool under there? It looks like I may just get my chance to look though because we found a little water damage near the windows that we need to take care of before laying the new flooring. A minor setback & after uncovering three rooms of flooring & only having one of them have an issue.. I would say that’s a win.

& after…

It get’s uglier before it gets prettier right? & wow is this ugly. The plan for the flooring in this space? The details aren’t hammered out yet, but the dream is 8″-10″ pine boards either painted or stained through the entire kitchen and sunroom area. But first.. fixing the subfloor & doing some more dirty work like removing the upper cabinets, cleaning and painting all the wood, removing the windows and replacing them, and so much more. I can’t wait to get to all that fun stuff, but there is still a lot of dirty work ahead of us. Aren’t you excited to see this be a light & bright space in our home? I can just imagine how beautiful it’s going to be be! What do you guys think of our progress so far? Kind of a mess huh?
