I've been putting rugs on top of dirty rugs for years and years because it was so hard to do anything else . . . but, finally, I decided this is the summer I do nothing else except deal with my Stuff. After moving absolutely everything moveable out of two rooms, Jason uncovered the old Douglas Fir pine sub-flooring, removed ugly paint around the edges, sanded and Polyurethaned it into what you see above. He also put some insulation underneath it. Now I'm waiting for the new, smaller sofa to be delivered next week, and then will shop for area rugs. In the meantime, I've gone through all the things in the basement, ready to take a car full to the thrift store for recycling. Well done!
