This month has started with the large project of replacing the flooring in the upstairs of the house. The old oak strips were squeaky, splintered, worn down and nailed with damaging spiral framing nails (from a previous owner trying to fix squeaks). Having those floors has resulted in a few splinters and lots of sock holes over the last 6 months.

They’re past their lifespan and it’s time to rip them out to start over with something new.

I picked up a ‘Demo Demon’ circular saw blade that can handle going through the odd nail and started sawing through the flooring. Then the 4ft crowbar makes short work of popping those boards off.

Looking forward to getting all this work done, so I can focus on things I want to do rather than things that need to be done.
