Out with the carpeting?

How do I get the carpeting out of my "93 Excella? It seems to be under everything? It's baby blue, old, and gotta go!

Remove the cabinetry base molding and cut it free with a utility knife.

My 71 had avocado green shag.

Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.

Base molding, I wish there was some. For me, itís going to be utility knife against the cabinets, carefully. No base molding. Iím putting down glue-down cork from Lumber Liquidators and Traffic Master vinyl tiles in the bathroom and the adjacent part of the hallway (side bath 34í Excella). Probably a 2-foot or so landing strip of the same vinyl inside the front door, too.

I removed the fold-over sofa last Sunday to get started, and Monday morning my Dometic RM 1303 AES refrigerator had completely died, it has been performing poorly for a while (bad door seals among other things). I think of it as a good news-bad news thing. At least I can replace the frige without worrying about the new flooring.

Progress updates to come.
