Billie I will be doing this (someday) in my house. Although we don't allow
shoes on in the house I am sure we will have plenty enough dirt under the
carpet. This carpet is about 18 years old or so the best I can figure. We
have a slab floor and I think I will be putting a combination of some kind
of tile and hardwood with the scatter rugs in the living room area.
    We have what was considered a commercial vacuum cleaner at the time that
would suck your toenails off if you got to close. One time my son was
teasing my daughter and sucked up a whole sock that had been laying on the
floor into the bag of the cleaner. Had to cut the bag open to get it. LOL
    I like the slick floors but the way I get distracted I am the one that
will be planting a garden in the corners of each room. Hmmmmm...... if I had
enough light I would grow sunflowers in each corner !
