I’ve pulled up the linoleum in two rooms now. The wood underneath is in surprisingly good shape; in fact the worst damage seems to be the two or three place where I’ve gouged it trying to pry linoleum up. The interesting thing is that the stuff in the office just came right up, really quickly and easily, it took maybe two hours to get most of it off and then a little bit longer with a few tough spots. Not so in the guest room. That was a two day ordeal. I’m really hoping that they did a shoddy job with the glue in our bedroom.
The plan right now is to move our stuff into the guest room so that I can start on our bedroom. We may delay the removal there so we can paint windows in there without worrying about drop clothes. It depends on how ambitious we’re feeling over the next week.
