My first impression of our house was, "oh my gosh, that carpet has got to go". Typically reaction of most home buyers, but really, the carpet had to go. My DS has mild asthma so we didn't want a house full of carpets.
We kept our old place while I rip up the carpet. My first experience ripping carpet. Would I want to do it again? I would shout NO at the top of my lungs. It was painful, but being a frugalister, I endured on.

|What the floor looked like after. Carpet in the back|
|Space between floor and base board after carpet was removed|
|Filled in with Great Stuff to prevent draft from coming in|
|Adding toe shoe|
