As the last of the day's sun kisses the top of the trees I am finally calling it a day. Floor is clean. All the wall paper has been removed. The old trim is gone. The laundry room is ready for a bit of mudding, touch of sanding, and masking out. Come Monday morning I should be able to start painting.
The carpet in the hallway was pulled up. To my surprise there was linoleum underneath. All the furring strips were removed and the newly revealed floor cleaned with the steam mop. While it's not perfect it is something I can live with until the new floor is ordered, arrives, and installed....which will happen just as soon as the laundry room is finished.
Off to play with the sock machine for a bit.
