As I write this update, we've taken off two layers of linoleum floor covering: 1980's followed by 1950's creating a veritable cheapo-floor time capsule. Today we began installing the underlayment and ordered tile!
Alas, this work means not too many post for some weeks. Hopefully it will go fast and I will post as post can with help from some great friends who have offered kitchen space, but it may be slower than usual... I truly apologize for delays and I wanna thank everyone for sticking with me through this trouble!
Among following recipe posts, I'll definitely toss up some updates with pictures of the progress. Thanks again everyone for bearing with me!
