We Ripped Up Carpet Glued Down With A Stripper This Weekend!

Hello Everyone!

Melissa and I ripped up some carpet, that was heavily glued down, in her basement over the weekend. This is at Melissa’s house. We went to rent a carpet stripper over the weekend at Home Depot. I even placed some videos in the Spotlight section on Snapchat. The machine sure felt heavier than 132 lbs. when we were loading and unloading into the truck! You need to put some ass into the machine to propel it forward. If you weigh the same amount as the machine, you will struggle with moving it forward. It is these moments where I don’t mind being built like a brick shit house. The best method we found was for Melissa to cut the carpet with a knife into strips. While I was pushing the machine, she was pulling up the strips of carpet. The “just pushing” method would have made the project go much slower. The glue on the floor made it a challenge as well. I kept losing my shoe in the glue. For the record, I have a brand new tattoo on my right foot. Therefore, I have to wear flip flops for about 2-3 weeks. It is summer time so that is not a big deal. We worked on a 25 ft. x 25 ft. section of carpet in the basement. It took us about 7-8 hours to finish removing the carpet. We smashed that task, got some food, took showers, swallowed some muscle relaxers, and went to sleep. Getting old is rough! Towards the end of the task, it was rough finishing! We didn’t have much in the energy tank at the end. I am sure it would not have been cheap to pay a team to do the work! We got the machine back to Home Depot before the 24-hr time frame. We will do a video, that is more in depth, on installing the laminate flor that space the following weekend. Melissa and I should get onto a Home Improvement channel in the future. From my first house, I learned how to do a bunch of projects solo. I have to finish stripping paint and put up some new paint my other location.

I thank you for stopping by my little world to either read or listen to my creative work. Did you have a good weekend? I helped my friend to rip up carpet with a machine this past weekend in the videos above. Prior to doing the work, we hit a diner and got to record an argument in the diner while we are eating. We made the best and poked fun at a bad situation. We went to a Housatonic brewery and had a few drinks while watching the band. I have residual back pain from the activity. As stated a million times previously, I appreciate feedback, comments, and suggestions. I wish you a peaceful day on your side of the world. Hopefully, you experienced great weather this past weekend. You are appreciated and I hope you get a laugh or two our of my tall tales and detailed observations. I shall harass ya again soon enough so have a fabulous Monday! Peace out, Cub Scout my friends! 😛

Cheers!
Leslie M. Jasper
