As with all renovation work, when you demo something, you uncover other problems. As we removed our old vinyl flooring, most of the subfloor came up with it. Once the vinyl was up, we had to head back to Home Depot for new subfloor. In total, we spent about $700 on flooring materials.
We purchased 15 solid oak stair treads that we cut to the right size for each pantry. We spent about $360 on the stair treads and another $12 on polyurethane to seal them in their natural color. We also needed wood to create the base support for each shelf and spent about $150 on that.
While marble makes a smooth, cool surface for rolling out pastry dough, it stains too easily to be practical for general food preparation. It could serve handsomely, though, in the less rigorous role of a backsplash. Granite, probably today's most popular high-end counter material and one often used in "period-inspired" kitchens, would have been rare in early 20th-century houses. A process to cut granite slabs as thin as 1 wasn't discovered until the 1930s, and the material remained prohibitively expensive until the 1960s.
