The 50 year old parquet floors are torn out and the old 1950’s glue is pretty much scrapped flat. In the morning I will start putting the new hardwood down. If I ever, ever mention another house project here on the blog I want you all to do one thing for me. Tell me not to do it! I get into these things and it is always five times harder than I guessed. Scrapping out 500 square feet of nasty black glue that is rock hard is no easy task. My hands, legs, back, and arms feel like they are at least 100 years old. It is really a shame the parquet wasn’t in better shape.
