Flooring Completed

Happy Monday everyone!!!

 I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

 Due to the storm last Thursday and Friday here in Pittsburgh… I sent a lot of time at the end of the week finishing my flooring project and  I am thrilled to let you know it is completely finished! I completed tearing up the carpet, installing the Pergo floor, doing the transitions and putting on the molding around the entire condo.

Here is a re-cap of the past few days...

 I have a huge curio cabinet that I had to unload in order to move it to install the floor under it. Since I unloaded it I figured I might as well watch all of my dishes that have been in it for 10 years as well! LOL!


 This is a picture when I was down to my last few rows of flooring… The area under the floor lamp is the concrete…

 Here is a picture of me knocking out the nails after removing the carpet tack strips… Don't you love my construction process? I wore my unicorn slippers to do all of the work ha ha!

 Another view from when I was down to a small section of flooring left to do.

Two rows left…

 This was the very last piece I had to install! I was so excited I had to take a picture before I put the board in!

This was a photo of the door transition… It works so well I was shocked! I thought for sure it was gonna be a problem but it fell right into place! If I haven't said it enough I highly recommend this project for anyone who is looking to have a Pergo floors installed! You could definitely do it yourself! The key is just watch all the videos online!

 Here is my final trip to Home Depot… This was my trip to return the rest of the flooring. I had initially ordered 84 boxes. First trip I took back the 10 boxes and this trip I took back another 19. I definitely over ordered but Home Depot took the extras back no problem!

Another picture of the door transition.

And a shot of the whole room finished.

I am sooo happy it is done and my home have them put back together. This project was awesome and so worth doing it myself! Now I'm enjoying two days of chilling  before I start celebrating Thanksgiving with my family. Those two days I'm going to sit and watch TV and do nothing! LOL!

Happy Monday!!! I hope you all enjoyed your weekends!!!

  4. Well Done Ann. I have concrete under my engineered hardwoods. Boy are they cold. So get the area rugs out and wear your slippers. Winter is a bitch on these floors. Then again you are in a condo and it may be warmer if someone is under you since heat rises. I hope you aren't on the bottom floor. They are absolutely beautiful and I'd put them in again, only next time heated floors. :-) You know after the lottery win. :-)

  7. WOW … it looks great! In recent years I witnessed installers - both in my home's den and at work - having to use the heavy artillery (???) because the concrete wasn't exactly level. That would sure preclude me from ever attempting something like this. So glad you can RELAX and enjoy!

    1. The Pergo was awesome on my very uneven concrete! It has padding under each board and that really appears to have helped where the concrete was uneven! Time will tell but I think it is okay even without level concrete!
