After we got the seats out of the bus, we spent a couple of days deciding what to do next. We thought we might just cover over the existing floor to expedite the conversion process, so I went ahead and laid out our floor plan with masking tape. So, we have this beautifully laid out floor plan and are getting excited to begin building, when we realize that we are very unsettled not knowing what’s under all that rubber and linoleum…..sooooo, enter plan 5,062 (yes, the plan has changed that often!). Once we made the decision to pull the floors, my gung-ho girls got right to work. Scraping, pulling, ripping, tugging….whatever it took to get that stuff out of there. And lest you think us parents are lazy and enjoying the slave labor, we busted a few knuckles ourselves! Even the boys wanted a piece of the demolition process.
So much to ponder and think about!
My eldest does not like to stop in the middle of a project. She wanted to complete it as long as she had the strength and insisted on working after dark. The boys decided to help out a bit more, but discovered it was much more fun to play with the masking tape that was once my well thought out floor plan!
This one lost her oomph!
