Yuck! We don't have the time or money to restore the original rooms but we'll be doing our best to create a nicer living space. Because walls have been moved we've decided not to go through the work of scraping off layers of glued down flooring, but to install good laminate flooring over top. First though, we have a lot of cleaning, filling, sanding, priming and painting to do. We have our work cut out for us.
