On Monday night, we went to Lowe's to try to find a tool that would cut through the final layer of flooring faster than a hammer and crowbar. Myron went straight to the power tools (Aaaarrrhhh). I asked someone for help and he showed me the floor scraper. So we left with the least expensive tool and thought "well, we will try it. If it doesn't work, we will go back for the power tool."
It is Tuesday night and we went over to the house to do a little work. We took the wii with us so the girls would be entertained. Who would have thought it could entertain them for 2 hours. Myron started in with the floor scraper. The pictures below show what we were able to accomplish in about 2 hours verses the very small section we had finished prior to Christmas with the hammer and crowbar. The scraper was much, much faster. Although, it did scar up the floor more.
Just a little bit more to do.
This is what the floor looks like where the clothes washer sat. It was a different flooring and was glued down instead of tarred.
