A week ago we bought new carpeting for our living room. Carpet place uses private layers to do the work so they charge extra to remove and dispose of the old carpet. Son wanted the old carpet so decided to save some $$ and move all the furniture out and remove the old carpeting our selves. Did half at a time. First half came out Sunday Morning. Watched the race, then Monday tied into the rest. Did my knees hate be by the time I was done getting all the old padding stuffs with staples pulled out. Had to so some tapering with cedar shingle due to a tapered floor joist when the house was built 32 years ago. Had to bring the carpeting floor up to match the Laminate flooring I laid 3 years ago. Yesterday they laid the carpet is a couple hours, 45 sq.yds. with 3 large cutout, one circular. Most of the furniture is back in the living room again. Now have some barn boards to put on 2 short walls on each side of a large double window, mainly to cover up some more paneling that was popular 30-40 years ago. At least I wont be on my knees much today and the cook is tickled pink. When she is happy, I am happy.
Finally Getting Back to Normal

Just be sure you clean the shoes off before traipsing across the carpet!
