Well, today marked day 3 of our floor remodel project. We are still in the process of ripping up the old floors. Whoever decided it was a good idea to glue hardwood to a OSB subfloor should be lathered in the glue and doused with feathers! Pulling the old wood floors up has by far … More Home Improvement: Day 3
