During the process of measuring for our new floor, we had the pleasure of discovering that one or two layers of the kitchen floor was asbestos tile (there were four layers of flooring on top of the concrete slab). This is not uncommon in a house built in 1960 in Northern Virginia and since we want to put in new flooring, the asbestos had to go. An abatement company came in yesterday to pull it all up and dispose of it properly (i.e. dig a hole and bury it).
For your viewing pleasure, here are pictures of our kitchen as it looks now:
