No pics of the old green carpet. Just pics after tearing it out:
6mil plastic and 1/2" plywood. The plywood is concrete nailed every sq ft
Roofing felt and the floors going down:
A new respect for handscraped floors. When they say hand scraped..its literally scraped by hand. Here is the tool to do it:
Stained and 1 coat of polyurethane. The flash on the camera kind of throws off the color
No flash and after 2nd coat of polyurethane:
I have to give props to the guys who I helped...they basically did the work...I helped where I could and learned a lot. Nailed down hard wood floors needs a few tools I dont have: Floor stapler, large trim nailer, table saw, pneumatic concrete nailer.
Total Cost: 1 12 pack of Corona
Just curious as to why nail down, vs glue down?
I take it those guys knew what they were doing? I've done laminate, pergo, etc. Currently helping a friend do his hardwoods, and he with the glue down.
Just curious because I'll be redoing my laminate with hardwood, and will be doing the work myself. Nail down sure looks to be a lot more labor intensive.
