First off, here is the photo I promised on the threshold.Â I had to add a 3/8″ peice to bring it upÂ level so I could add the metal trim.
Here are some photos of the mostly finished work.Â I haveÂ of course all the trim to add to hide the expansion gap.Â Also more caulking to do to keep the water off the floor.
Yes, that’s a tub in my living room!Â You mean you don’t have one in your living room? 😉
I like the way the threshold turned out.Â Nice and simple.
Yes, I even added new flooring to the bottom off all the cabinets.Â Turned out pretty well.
I know there is a lot of worry about adding too much weight with floating floors.Â I weighed a new box and kept a count of how much I used.Â I also weighed the scraps and subtracted that from the total.Â So my new floor weighs 275 lbs.Â Too much?Â I doubt it.Â I also removed a heavy furnace, oven, water heater.Â
I will be adding back in a combo water heater/furnace unit so that will save some weight.Â I will not be putting back an oven.
We should talk in detail about this on theVAP Episode 29.Â Check it out…by
