Before moving anything in, we quickly removed all the carpet and carpet padding in the upper level bedrooms and hallway. Evidence would suggest that the original 1954 flooring was carpet. I believe we removed three generations worth of carpet pad staples from the subfloor.
We decided, without much hesitation, we would install a floating cork floor in the bedrooms and hallway. We have this material in some of the bedrooms of our old house and love the look, feel and warmth of the material. More to come on cork selection….
And we will be forever thankful to Mom and Dad Beer for showing up just in time to drag some stinky carpet pad out
