The good news and the bad news

The ink was barely dry on our mortgage papers, but we couldn't wait to find out what was under the carpet in our new home.

The good news?  It's looking like the entire house has hard wood floors!

The bad news?  They aren't in the best shape.  :-(  In the dining room area, we found this:

That would be tiled floor on top of the wood and under the carpet.  The tar used to adhere the tile is very difficult to remove. 

But, one day, this will look good.  I promise!  We are a little disappointed, though, that we will have to invest a lot of sweat equity to get it that way.
