As par the course, I've had to stop remodeling work while I heal from my kidney issue-stones and surgical procedure. Just a small procedure nothing serious. Still, there's down time. I haven't gotten anything else done at the farmhouse other than cleaning. I think partly because of the cold and partly because with the kidney stones I just didn't feel well enough to do the remodeling work. Can't wait to complete it though.
As of now, the subflooring is out of the kitchen and dining room. Yeah! All thanks to my dear hubby, who worked his tailfeathers off to rip out the subfloors. The kitchen was a horrible mess. Here are some before photos of the kitchen and dining room floors.
Once my kidney recovers, I'll get up and at those floors. wood is red oak, so you can imagine how pretty it will turn out once I refinish them. I'll add the 'after' photos as soon as I complete the floors.

The kitchen is probably the worst room-running a close second to the bathroom. Although, structurally sound, it requires a great deal of cleaning and redecorating. But I love to decorate, so who am I to complain. It's exciting to clear the house out and have an empty pallet as a starting point.
