Last Wednesday Bob shared the start of his home renovations of a lovely rowhome on Chambers Street. Today he shares the work he did refinishing his wood floors in his master bedroom. He removed one layer of carpet, only to find another layer of carpet that was an indoor/outdoor carpet with a black rubber backing that eventually had just turned to powder. Below are the beautiful results after he was all done.
Bob said that after the carpet was removed the house started to smell better. But, it was a huge undertaking and a lot of dust! One can only imagine!
This is Bob’s next project, removing layer upon layer of old tile. He’s hoping there is an original floor somewhere below there. Wouldn’t it be great if more homes in Newburgh could be cared for with such detail? There are plenty to go around!
