New Flooring for 300
Excellent job, Tony. I’m really enjoying watching your progress on your Newell since mine is so close in age. You are doing many projects that I have done or have on my to-do list!

Tony, beautiful job! You're an inspiration to all of us that plan on redoing our flooring. You need to add photos to your gallery!

Really great job on the flooring! We installed LVP in our Foretravel many moons ago and it came out nice even though I had no clue what I was doing. The detail work is what takes all the time to figure out. I am laying flooring in our home and although much easier cuts the sheer volume of the floor and amount of time on my knees makes it tedious work. You have my admiration for a job well done!

Adrian, My knees are just now starting to feel normal. I'm a huge fan of quality knee pads, but even with the best I could buy, my knees were pretty sore and tender. Also, and this has never happened to me before, I got a cramp ( Charlie horse thing) in my inner thigh muscle. I think it was from the continuous kneeling and standing and kneeling, etc., etc. It was to worst cramp ever. Way worse than the typical calf cramp. It had me bent over at the waist for 15 minutes. Every time I tried to up straighten up, my inner thigh muscle would spasm and send me right back down. Never ever want that to happen again. Take your time and be careful. I bet it is going to look great.

Awesome install!! Makes me want to replace my 42 year old carpet… but I really like the carpet feel on my feet. I’m thinking about a heated floor and LVP combination. Any thoughts? Anyway thanks for the encouragement to consider the floor replacement for all us diy owners. Again awesome job!!

Hi Mike,
thanks for the feedback. Really never considered a heated floor. Way above my paygrade, on so many levels.
Besides, we live in SC with pretty mild temps. Also not sure how the LVP would work with heated floors.
