Thanks for starting my day with a smile!
Yikes, well at least you have wood floors under there! I actually prefer them. But yes to "don't try this at home" - you could have nothing but carpet foam and plywood under that carpet (like we do)!
Yes, we knew there was good wood under there before we started tearing!!
You Took The Carpet Off!? Wow Will You Get New Carpet Donna???? .. ???
