Sun room - glue removal

Here's sun room as it looked when we purchased the house.

The sun room was added onto the living room in the 1940s by the second owner and the previous owner didn't think this room had hard wood floors. I even pulled up a corner of the carpet and thought there was only sub-floor under the carpet, so it was a nice surprise when we found hard wood under the carpet and linoleum.

Here's the floor with the remaining linoleum glue.

Wallpaper steamer was used to soften the glue for scraping. This room went fast only about 2.5 hours.

The finished product.

This room will eventually be wall papered, but we will have to strip and paint the wood work and book case before that will happen.
