When we left off last week, I had started some exploratory demolition, which included pulling up a section of vinyl flooring and the subfloor beneath it to reveal the original pine floors. This week I pried up the last of the plywood subfloor and was relieved to find that the original floor is in decent condition. Sure, it needs some patching and refinishing, but even in its current rough, dirty, and unfinished condition, the original floor adds some rustic, 19th-century charm to the room.
