omg yucky!

25 year old carpet holds a ton of dirt. yuck! at least I now know all windows need checked and recalked. seems during windy rainy storms water blows in or at least there are water stains on underside of carpet. had planned on reframing windows bungalow style anyway, instead of sheetrock. bumped that job up a little sooner than expected. plus am probably going to adjust, re-level sub floor before flooring. well at least I am getting a peak at the bones and it's a small sheltering nest, so very doable. even marble round fireplace has to go. will match firebox backing to concrete counters I am doing.
