Stairs side view before and after

We finished prepping the stairs for our next bit of work. To see what we did you can have a look our last blog entry. Now that the offending carpet and padding were off the stairs, I put back on my hazmat suit and got back to work.

 Before and After Smaller


One of the first thing we did when we moved into the new house was replace the carpet in the bedrooms and living room. This left old carpet in the upstairs hall, down the stairs and in the dining room. The carpet was a thick, gold shag-like rug. While it was clean and quite soft, it was 40 years old. Our intention was to leave it in those areas until we knew what we wanted to replace it with, and that we had the budget to do so.
