Pergo in the Caravel

Yesterday I felt so good at the completion of the floor work...removal of old asbestos, cleaning, git rot application, poly coating and the full Pergo installation. By the way, it takes three whole boxes of Pergo to do the job from shower to front.
Today everything fit back into place....considering the added floor thickness from the Pergo and underlayment.....Except the water tank....the filler would not align. So after considerable thought I had to cut out the portion of new flooring under the tank, reseal things and install the tank. Tomorrow AM I will get the Gaucho back in for final fit.
I stopped the Pergo at the closet/folding door and used Armstrong tile from there back to compensate for any water problems with the shower pan. This Armstrong extended into the closet and into the holding tank area. Completely sealed to keep it dry.
The new holding tank goes in next. Info on that will follow.
Am I having fun yet?

That's like a sneak attack. WHERE ARE THE PICTURES for us other Caravel owners to aspire too?
