Four on the floor

Four layers got ripped up:

From top to bottom, from left: a thin wood-like veneer: a layer of foam to give the floor even more sponginess: a half inch of oriented strand board: green foam insulating material, backed with a shiny mylar-like substance -- all resting on old linoleum. Judging by the date stamp on the OSB, this floor was likely installed around 2003 or 2004. It had to go because the subfloor had gotten seriously out of level.

That particular problem is a recurring theme in this house.
