This New House

Over the past few years, we've been ripping up the carpet in the house and replacing it with hardwood flooring.

The last room to go is the front room, because K. has been using it as his study. Since he got his laptop at Christmas, he hasn't been using the desk, so we cleaned out the room, stored stuff in the basement, got rid of a bunch of stuff, and finally were able to rip out the carpet today. (He's ultimately going to get a room in the basement, when we finish that out, for his exercize equipment etc.)

The pics show the carpet, then the dirt on the carpet pad, and finally the dirt under the carpet pad. Amazing how much dirt gets trapped under there, isn't it? The pink outline on the carpet pad shows where the plastic chair mat was located. You can see how dirty the surrounding carpet pad was in comparison to the protected area.
