We decided to remove the carpet and refinish the wood floors that have been under the carpet for over 37 years. We expected them to be in less than good condition, but to our surprise they were in very good shape. I am not much of a carpet lover. I like hardwood floors.
Below are photographs of the process.

We had stuff relocated in the kitchen . . .
. . . across from the dining area
. . . in the family room
. . . in the garage
. . . in the bedrooms. Our house was a mess.
This is the MONSTER -it created all the dust and removed the old varnish
Tom with the MONSTER. It sure knows how to eat.

The finished product. We are very happy with it.
. . . after the furniture was moved back in.
We now have only three more rooms to do. I wonder if Tom will be able to get them all done before golf season starts?
