Oak Floor

Started installing the oak floor today. It will go in the entry, kitchen/hall & bathroom. The living room and bedroom will be carpet. I chose a natural red oak that is mounted on top of a tongue and groove plywood. Each of the tongue & groove sections has a special glue already applied that bonds once you tap (actually pound really hard) it into place. The floor will float on top of 3 in 1 underlayment that I will install tomorrow (wanted to get the first few sections installed so I could use all of the lines I'd drawn on the floor before covering it with the pad). I've attached a few pictures of my progress today. The last picture shows a couple of real tough cuts that I had to make this evening to get it transitioned into the bathroom correctly. These pieces have not been "tapped" into place yet.

Smile Almost Done with the Wood Floor!!!!

Just a few more pieces of trim and the bathroom, which I can't do till my new toilet flange arrives, and it'll be done. Installing the floor & shoe moulding took a little longer than expected. My wife says that I over analyse things sometimes but I think this floor was one place that it paid off. Definitely need to know where your last piece is gonna end up before you lay the first one. Carpet is supposed to be installed on Tuesday. It's getting so close - I can't wait to get the new couch and new toilet in and clear out all my tools. Joe

Absolutely beautiful job Joe, We recently had hardwood floors installed at our house, it was fascinating to watch the craftsman installing them, and there is just nothing quite like the warm look that wood gives the interior. You might have a second career there Joe when everyone sees the neat installation you did. Mike
