My son house was back to the rafters in the kitchen the other rooms the floors are to the wood. They are getting wood and tile.

When we got to his house we help him picked the old cabinets he could use in the garage someone was coming to get the ones he didn't. I took a book case and large cabinet to use in my garage. Now we have to clean our garage. More work.
