Today after work I got a chance to lay some more flooring down.Â Had some problems getting started as there was a bump in the floor where I already laid it.Â After some investigation I found one of the plastic spacers fell under the floor!Â Had to remove a few planks to get to it.Â Now all is well.
Biggest twist today was figuring out the door threshold.Â It originally had a peice of angle metal going over the edge of the floor then down the side.Â Since this is laminate flooring it is 3/8″ higher than the previous tile floor.Â So I had to improvise a bit and add a 3/8″ peice of wood for a spacer to raise the threshold and tie it in even with the flooring.Â Unfortunately I did not get a good photo of it.Â I’ll add one later.
I made some pretty good progress.Â After looking closely at the photos, perhaps I should invest in some rogaine 😉
The all purpose jig saw!Â I’m using a laminate blade…
Plastic tapping block that came in a floating floor install kit.Â I’d recommend getting the tapping block from the manufacture of the flooring, but I could not locate one 🙁
This photo is a little washed out from the flash.Â But you can see how far I got.Â If you look closely that’s the door opening to the right.by
