Thanks so much for posting this video! Just used your instructions to pull my old carpet out. My friends looked at me like I was crazy when I told them I planned to. ??Got it done. Any chance you have (or could make) a video on sanding floors? I want to strip my bedroom floors so I can restrain them like I did my living & dining rooms yearsss ago. I can’t remember which machine my mom rented for me.?
Can someone tell me what he used to cut the carpet?
Gosh thank you so so much!!
Do we have to take the pating out?

So fun to watch
No house project ever went without one of the kids stepping on a nail/staple, smashing a finger or falling off some sort of height... My dad instructed and let us learn from our mistakes. I've had many tetanus shots!!!
A floor scraper really helps get the staples out
