I dewinterized today and the pump is holding pressure so no leaks due to freezing. I cleaned out the water heater and reinstalled the anode, filled up the fresh tank and everything appears ok. Started installing the wooden floor on top of the factory linoleum. Got about 50% done and hope to finish tomorrow. Then install some trim and I'll be done. Here are some pictures, I ran the entrance wood towards the bath and the front and rear will be at 90 degrees. The hard part was trimming for the screen door to allow operation.

one more picture, what you see in these pictures are 8 pieces of the laminate, 10 to a box, 2 boxes are all you will need. Have to cut some narrow pieces on the table saw tomorrow to fill in the empty spots.

It looks great, Jim.
What happened to running the boards at an angle.

What product did you use? Is this an engineered wood, or a plastic laminate? I was planning on using cork when I do mine, whenever that is.

OOoo, Aahhh, fantastic! That dark color is gorgeous. Why did you leave the linoleum? Guess there is no need to take it out. Do you know what a box of the wood weighs? It's on my list for some day.

You always want to run the boards towards the focal point in the room. In the tiny space of an Escape, running at angles would have been "too busy". That idea will work in large rooms but not in small spaces. By tricking the eye, the wood makes the Escape
appear larger coming in and then turning the wood stretches further to each end. Really opens it up.
It is a wood laminate, wood tools and saw, Home Depot, $25/box total, 2 boxes needed. Plus you will need come trim moulding and some caulk. I caulk one side and trim the other, this allows for expansion/temperature change.

A single box with 10 sheets is approx 20 lbs, you will need about 14 sheets.

I have some scrap pieces left over and may try a angle install in the tiny space between the screen and outside door. I'll see how hard it may be. Glue will have to be used in that small space.
