Default Howdy from Kentucky!

Hi everyone. I just bought a 150 year old home that needs a ton of work.
I'm ready to get my hands dirty!
I'm a fast learner but I ask a lot of questions.
I have a bunch of irons in the fire but first thing is first! The dreaded kitchen floor!
Off to work...

Starting to take up 3 layers of linolem bright and early tomorrow morning and hoping that I don't have to take on the expense of a new sub floor. Cross your fingers!

My college team is the Louisville Cardinals. I haven't missed a home game in 17 years! I'm so excited about our new coach Charlie Strong!
Being from Nashville...are you a Volunteer?

No, not really, but I do like college ball better than pro. Ours is a hockey household. And as TX said take pics, lots of em.

I think what TX really meant to say was he would be more than happy to help assemble patio furniture if you ever have the need and loves to watch old folks nap.

Okay. Here is what i've done so far. I laid everything that I could without a cutter that I am borrowing from a friend.
Wish me luck and any pointer on how to use it without losing a digit?
It is a rather intimidating machine!
I have to do all of this while potty training 2 puppies, having a 2 year old birthday party and teenagers all over the place when school lets out in 7 days.
THEN...next project is the fireplace hearth. I'll get some pictures up of that because I will need all the advice I can get. I have to cover some damaged limestone.
PS... TX, I dont have any patio furniture but I have a play set that needs to be put up if you wanna come over
I'll buy beer. haha
