Any idea what I'll find under it all?
Hi, I've wandered here from the kitchen forum because we're going to remodel our kitchen and that will include pulling up the old flooring.
We have a 1908 colonial with the original long leaf pine floors. Our kitchen has (I believe) 2 floors under the linoleum we quickly put down 10 yrs ago. What we'd like to do it pull it all up to get to the original wood when we gut the kitchen. The previous owner who lived here beginning in the 40's says he only remembers the kitchen with a floor over it, so it's been covered a long, long time.
I know you never can tell, but I was wondering if there was a common way of covering those original floors long ago. Did they nail down a subfloor before laying a new one? or did they just glue over it? I'm scared of a major glue problem. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
