MaeMae and I picked up Jay. Ray's back is still bothering him, and as much as he doesn't like to be around Jay, (even if Jay is sober), he knew that he could not do the floor at this time. Jay and I moved the dining furniture, hutch and fridge out of the kitchen. Jay removed the baseboards, and Ray started cutting out the old linoleum. We cut out some soft spots on the floor, and the shower the other side of the wall was suspected of being the cause. But it wasn't that. A while back the window Heat/AC had been leaking in the wall, and we had altered the pitch of it to rectify that. But it had already done it's damage to the floor under the old lino.
Some blocking was screwed in, and 3/4" plywood screwed in the hole. Ray went around on his knees scraping up the old floor mastic, and it is pretty smooth, but we will need to use some Floor Leveler, which we will 'float' tomorrow.
All the up and down the steps, over to the board rack, and up to the plywood storage did my knees in, and by 1.30 we had all had enough for today.
