The floor refinishers started bright & early this morning but yesterday evening was spent prepping for their arrival.
Sure we spent almost all day Saturday tearing up carpet & flooring. And yes, we had all the trash hauled away Monday. So it seemed like Saturday should just be a quick little walk through to make sure everything was good to go.
They appreciated our window being so low to the ground with a perfect view of the sidewalk.
Bruce didn’t understand what all the fuss was about.
The view was so yesterday’s news for him.
Meanwhile, I removed the pocket doors.
(yes, by myself)
I noticed that the doors have these roller things on the bottom of them.
The previous owner took the track up when he laid the laminate and said it was tucked inside the pocket. I didn’t look for it but perhaps it’ll shed some light on how the rollers work.
Then pulled the bottom of the door toward the back wall, stood inside the window, & pushed the bottom away a little more. It slipped out of the top track pretty easy. Obviously I had my hands full, otherwise I would have taken a picture.
Then it was on to the scary closet.
Historically, I have had VERY bad luck with rodents & fabric. It’s a long story, perhaps for a post this afternoon or evening. The giant drop cloth wadded up, forgotten in an old closet seemed like the perfect place for something awful to hide.
I moved that and all our tools leftover from Saturday down to the basement so they were out of the way.
It kinda worked.
