What is under there?!
Can someone tell me what to expect and prepare and tell me just to go for it!? So we bought our first "new" house and from the deed I found in the creepy basement I know that it was built in 1893. So we are slowly updating and minor renovations room by room. I absolutely hate the carpet (besides the obvious gross factors) it's horrible to have in the dining room which is right of the ten by ten kitchen-where we enter the house. So at the moment the dining room is half playroom,mud room and storage :)
I really want to rip out the carpets and see what is going on under neath it. I peeled it back around the register and I don't know what to think. It seems to be unfinished? I don't know the gaps seem kind of large from the small spot I seen. There is a very bad slope on one side of the room, not sure what that will be like either!
My other concern is if and when we do this-should I be concerned about mold,asbestos etc etc...I will be sending our toddler to grandmas for this project some weekend regardless.
