Handyman got home from work Friday evening, changed his clothes, and started right in on taking the tile out of the room. (This is why I have very little in-progress photographs. He gets right to work, and if I'm not around to snap a few pictures, they didn't exist.)
The baseboard also had to accommodate a few other cuts, such as our shoe cabinet, since we chopped the legs off it no longer accommodate the taller baseboard trim. (The legs come long enough to not to do this, but we wanted our shorter.) If we remove the cabinet, we can easily pop in a new, non-cut piece of baseboard trim.
This is the closest wall color -gray with a little bit of a blue undertone.
We also had to accommodate our two heating vents. We did this by lowering the vent so the vent cover occupied the widest part of the trim. We have access to these vents in the basement, so lowering them a smidgen was easy.
The final floor task was finishing the space between the floor and the doors. This was just standard weather stripping.
The finished product
We still have all the touch up work left, but almost all done . . .
Now my family room floors match the rest of the hardwood floors throughout the rest of the house.
