While the remodeling of the main house is still ongoing, I also have been working on the other floors of the house. One major item was redoing the basement flooring with lifeproof vinyl, which is fully waterproof while looking and feeling like the hand-scraped hickory wood floors upstairs. This replaced carpet that had been damaged from seepage flooding. The first step was to move all of the furniture out of the way and to rip out the old carpet.
After that, we started making progress on installing the flooring:
Once the flooring and quarter rounds were in, all that was left was moving the furniture back. In early 2020, the redesign of the basement will start in earnest and I’ll repaint the walls and start replacing the furniture. For now, the old furniture looks good with the new flooring!
