Project #4 - New floor.

Posted 03-25-2013 at 04:12 PM by outofcontrol

Well, we were going to wait on the floor. The laminate floor in the coach was cupping in places, and delaminating in some other places, but for the most part it was fine. Project #4 was going to be a remodel of the living room. Until we pulled out the Gaucho and realized that the floor didn't go far enough forward. Now project #4 is the floor, and #5 will be the living room "J-Lounge"

Here's the "before"

Then I pulled out the living room. Took about 30 min. Notice the short floor:

Then my Bro showed up and we pulled out all the floor.

We spent more time shopping for flooring than we did installing it. Ended up with a light solid Bamboo tongue and groove. We wanted click-lock floor, but instead used a fiber strand reinforced adhesive padding. It lets the floor "float" but holds it together with strong adhesive and a grid of fibers. That and flooring glue in every junction.

We tried to put the flooring under the walls, fixtures, and cabinets whenever we could to clean things up. pulling carpet remnants out with pliers or stuffing it back in further. Some areas we spent extra time making it neat like around the pockets doors.

About this point we realized that the new floor really clashed with the woodwork in the rest of the coach. Project #6 might be closer than planned when we paint, and re-knob everything.

By 6p Sunday I had all the floor in. now we can start with our J-Lounge redesign.
