Anniversary activity - part 2

| 1 Comment

After thinking about it more, we remembered that the installation instructions for the laminate flooring very clearly indicate that it is a floating floor and that nothing should be nailed into it. So, that means we cannot remove the post that holds up the closet structure, lay the flooring inside the closet, and attach the post on top of the floor. And I don't have to find a place to put all of the stuff in that 14-foot long closet! Whew!

We decided to move forward with the floor installation. Sunday afternoon, we removed the ceramic tiles in front of the sliding glass doors (the tiles I installed all by myself in fall 1992!), sanded down the remaining tile grout, sanded down clumps of wall texture from the plywood underfloor, and vacuumed the entire room - mostly by Bill but I helped by vacuuming away clouds and drifts of grout dust as he sanded! I also made dinner - spaghetti meat sauce, whole wheat penne pasta, and garlic bread.

Yesterday after work at Lowe's, we bought 19 boxes (for 20 total) of Pergo Global Passage laminate flooring in Dolce Mahogany, as well as coordinating 4-way T moulding kits and curved quarter-round molding. I know, I's not Tony's store (Tony Stewart's sponsor is Home Depot), but we found the color and style of flooring we liked at Lowe's. Bill will return the boxes of unwanted flooring to Home Depot probably tomorrow.

The boxes of flooring need to acclimate to the room for 48 hours, so the earliest we can begin installation of the floor is Thursday evening...but Survivor starts so I'm hoping Bill can wait until Saturday!

Pizza's here now - bye!

Hi Cheryl, I enjoyed your project of the laminate flooring. My wife and I are thinking of going with the same floor you did and I would love to ask you some questions if you don't mind. Please respond to this if you are still here. I think your foor looked fantastic and confirms to me that dolce mahagony is the color we need to go with. Please respond so I can ask you a few questions.
Sincerely, Thomas Goodrich
