It has been a busy time here in Tucson. In between chemo and appointments for me, we have worked on our new floor. I think chemo effects people in different ways. Joe's energy comes...we work about 2 to 3 hours, then his energy goes. We have been patient with ourselves...unlike days past when we would put in an 8 hour day to finish projects in a timely manner. It has been 18 days and we are finished! Well, except for a few small places that need grouting.
I had to find pictures in the archives to show a before. Look closely to see the carpet in front of the sofa and under the TV. All that carpet was removed. We did leave the carpet on the slide under the kitchen table and chairs and under the sofa.
Also, we made a straight cut just under the captain and passenger chairs...we left the carpet in the cab of the bus.
Our floor of choice was an Allure product we found at Home Depot. It runs about $50 a box which has 8 interlocking 12"X36" pieces.
This shows the old linoleum that was under the carpet and the cut we made in the carpet to separate the living space and cab space. Our new floor was placed on top of the linoleum.
|All done here!|
The easiest floor ever...maybe if it is installed in a large square room. We have lots of angles and curves in Belle...not so easy!
A big plus though, is that the tiles can be scored with a razor on the back and snapped apart for odd sizes. It is a floating floor...it sticks to itself and no glue was needed.
And yes, that's a large bottle of Tylenol on the counter!
Too bad girls...this one went back too!
Until then, a blanket will do.
We have no real blog worthy news. In our down time we have enjoyed naps, the patio and walking the pups! Not very exciting!
Happy Thanksgiving...we sure have a lot to be thankful for!
Until next time, take care and
happy tails...umm, I mean trails!
