Crowbar, check! Hammer, check! Lots of frustration to take out on a subfloor, super check!
Look at this super-nastiness! We're actually going to trim some of this, as it's still sound, to reuse. This will save us a little bit of money and it will help because there's an odd alcove in my office that makes it just a wee bit longer than one of these pieces.
Now we come to the good news/bad news part of the demo. The good news is that we discovered that the trim may not have been completely at fault. This is great as it means that there hopefully isn't more of this mess hiding somewhere else on the deck-side of the house. The bad news is that we discovered that the leak is coming from the sliding glass door.
But since we've found this new issue, we also have to replace the plywood. I'm hoping when we tear out the plywood and expose the floor joists, we'll see an opportunity to replace the bottom of the jam and install some flashing without destroying the door. Oh, and one more jenky thing -- they built this whole house with nails. I'm almost sure of it. I haven't found a screw anywhere inside the house -- at least where it's still the original construction. They even nailed down the plywood. No wonder the floor's always squeaked in my office!
Anyhoo... maybe something to look forward to? I guess we'll have to see how replacing the frame under the door goes. My hopes were to replace the sliding door with French doors eventually, but unless I find a kick-ass deal on craigslist in the near future, I don't see that happening this year. We'll see how the next lap in the floor replacement goes. I'll keep ya posted.
