We’re replacing the floors in the bedrooms – when we bought our house it had mouldy seagrass carpeting, which would be okay except for the mould. We ripped that stuff up – it makes great mulch for the garden! But under the seagrass was warped, crumbling particle board.
At first I thought we could repair the old sub-floor – I sealed it,
and tried to level it with a levelling compound so we would have a flat surface to install a floating floor on
But in the end, it wasn’t saveable, and we ripped out all the sub floor
and had a friend of ours put in new boards
Then we started installing bamboo floating floorboards
It was hard work learning how to bang the planks in properly – they snap together – no nails or glue required. The instructions say “tap lightly with a hammer”, but we had to bang them in really hard.
Littletree did some of the measuring
and finally the finished product!
We love it; it looks great :) It’s now become Littletree’s favourite room – probably because the floor is smooth and there’s no furniture in there yet, so she puts on Abba songs and dances like crazy in there.
