Something that we were able to do since our house closing is delayed is helping my parents install a new Pergo floor in their house. My parents moved into this house a little over 5 years ago. The original carpet was a dark green color and had seen better days, so it was time to put in a new floor. Since John and I are the experts at laminate flooring now, it made sense for us to do this rather than have them pay several hundred dollars to have it done. We only asked that they buy us dinner out. What a bargain!
They removed all of the old carpet and pad so the floor was ready for us to rock and roll over the weekend.
It took 2 days of work. I have to give a huge thanks to the last month of Female Body Breakthrough I have been doing because I was hardly sore at all after a weekend of crouching, bending, kneeling and hammering. Poor John was not as lucky. He is really sore. He needs to lift more consistently, which is my one :ahem: gentle hinting that I do to him.
We finished all but replacing the the last bits of trim and the door transitions, which we left for my dad to finish up.
It came out really nice! This is Pergo Max (good for dogs) handscraped Richland Hickory.
It’s hard to get the good color of this. It’s dark, but not too dark and had a nice textured finish.
That was a weekend of work, but it should bring many years of enjoyment for my folks!
