dreams dashed…

Filed under: bathroom, house, repair, update — mgcg @ 9:05 pm

well, we attacked the floor in the half bath tonight to try to reveal the original grey vinyl with flecks of yellow, pink, grey, and aqua.  the carpet tiles aren’t horrible, but aren’t even really glued down.  the tan vinyl tiles with whispy looking weeds on them are bad and are up.  i would show a pic but i can’t find my usb drive my memory card plugs into.  so, cliffhanger it is.

edit:  here it is…

so cool!

and uggh…

shotty patch job with new subfloor.  NOT level with existing original subfloor.

more old more recent tiles removed.  more of the original flooring ruined by the patched subfloor job.

the replaced subfloor was so uneven with the original that the new tan tiles they put on cracked and broke because of the drop off.  lovely.

now what?  for now put the maroon carpet tiles back over it all, then when we can actually do it right, perhaps find a similar floor to the original.  that will have to wait.
