When faced with any overwhelming project, such as my income tax returns, the outline for a novel, or say…
…a vintage trailer makeover that turned itself into a full-on, bones-out, ground-up restoration, I’ve found that it’s best to start with the easiest, most obvious things first.
In the case of my taxes, for example, I tackle my name, SS # and home address right out of the shoot. (I’m just brave that way.) In Petunia’s case: 57 year-old pink linoleum floor tiles took the prize. They absolutely had to come up first and foremost.
Many of the visible tiles (peeking out from under the random carpet-remnant-come-throw-rug) were peeling up at the edges and seemed like they’d be dislodged by a good healthy sneeze.
Hi Kyla, it's best that you post in either the Talk about your trailer section or one of the repair sections if you want answers to questions. I check all posts, but some members might not. I'm enjoying your work.
Yes, the tiles and glue can have asbestos. Not too dangerous-dampen with a spray before you work on it. Another way to get rid of the glue is to cover with thin ply sub-floor.
