Should we try to restore the HW floors?
As we are thinking of wrapping up our exterior paint-job for another winter I can't help but move to the next project... I am 98% sure that the original hardwood flooring is hiding under our kitchen linoleum and subflooring. Do any of you have experience or ideas for this project? The issue is the kitchen cabinets are set on top of the subfloor. Is there any way to tear that up without disturbing the cabinets (they are only 8 years old)? I can see that the linoleum and subflooring are about 1/2 inch higher than the hardwood flooring where it meets the dining room floor. Or should we just scrap the whole idea and go with new linoleum...? Thank-you for any feedback and/or ideas!
