We bought an old farmhouse. It continues to surprise us.*
Turns out, the laundry room floor, when removed, sits up 8 inches off a slab foundation. Long story short (and eliminating a few ((wet)) details) the floor is now removed and it’s back to the slab.
An 8 inch step-down from my kitchen into the laundry room now exists. Perfect.
Now, if I could just remember that when I’m carrying a basket of laundry. I’m going to pad the far wall pretty soon. At least then I’d have a softer landing.
*Let me (try to) keep my optimism, please.
