PICS!! Woodja's new floor--

Well, it's been 28 days since I removed the rot & things are moving right along. All the flooring is installed & carpet replaced under the toe kicks.
Trim work yet to be done. Some moldings cut but nothing fastened.
Great to start putting her back together!!
Pete

Looks really good. Of course I know you couldn't have done it with out your helper cat.
We have our own helper cat, and can't do anything with out his approval.

Hi, the new floor looks great. What type or brand of flooring is it? Looks like your cat approved it.

Sorry I don't know much about the flooring product. It's 7mm laminate lock together walnut finish flooring from a salvage co in Chattanooga. Made in the USA. easy to work with & 'Fred' was much help----Pete

Floor looks great and I know how you feel when you say "Great to start putting her back together!!

Just started putting my Overlander back together. Currently looking into the different flooring options.

The floor looks good!

Curious what lead you to decide to lay it width-wise instead of length-wise...?

Well, me knees don't hurt much because I spend so much time on them I put on knee pads first thing in the AM.
To address the issue of why I choose to install the flooring crosswise--I actually wanted to lay it on the diagonal. I read those posts where some thought laying it crosswise would make the coach seem 'short & stumpy'.
Well, that did it right there. I wouldn't mind if it was shorter(with the same room). I liked the concept of diagonal but chickened out at the extra effort.
My goal with this project it to NOT get hung up on all these details to the point of never leaving the driveway.
Whoops, it's 8:30, got to get to Lowes-----------------Pete

Hello woodja, I see you are from Dayton, Tenn.
Do you know where the A.S. camp site is ? South of Jamestown, Tenn. ? Off 27 ? or 127 ?
I have some friends that we want to visit there

Thank You

John

I like how your floor turned out... I have a motorhome with carpeting which is almost like new so I really don't have an "excuse" to take it out and put in a new wood floor. One day.
