The original subfloors upstairs were in pretty rough shape. They were super squeaky and creaky (something I imagined cursing whenever the creaks wake up the baby when we walk around up there in my imagination). They also had several sections which had broken off leaving gaps in the floors which isn't the safest or best.
You can get the general idea of how they looked before, or here's a fuller picture of the subfloors on the main floor from when we did that reno a few years ago.
Sadly, I didn't get any pictures of the holes in the floor. They started installing the chip board before I got home for the day and even realized they were going to.
So now when we walk in there, it no longer creaks and there is no fear of stepping on the wrong weak board and falling through to the main floor.
Here's what's left for us to do before we can set the nursery up:
* Finish electrical in the hallway
* Drywall the hallway
* Mud the hallway
* Sand the hallway
* Prime the hallway
* Paint the hallway
* Take hallway floors up
* Remove all nails from the hallway floor
* Install new subfloors in the hallway
* Install new bamboo floors in the hallway
* Install new bamboo floors in the nursery
I should probably stop looking at this list. It's very daunting and stressful and I cannot imagine how we're going to get it all done in time.
Anyone else stressing about projects and deadlines!?
