The New Floor ~ A Sewing Room Update
Yesterday I touched up the little paint “mistakes” from the day before and started installing the laminate floor. I purchased 10 boxes of Golden Amber Oak Laminate Flooring at Sam’s Club. There are 7 planks per box and each plank measures 47 7/8″L x 7 5/8″W. A box covers 17.65 square feet.
I installed 6 of the 10 boxes (14 rows) in about 4 hours. They were full rows, from one wall to the other, with only having to cut the last piece of each row to fit the width of the room.
I have about 3 more full rows before I reach the closet and the entry area where I will need to do about 4 rows with more detailed cuts to get around corners and under door moldings. I was very careful when I removed the baseboards and intend to re-use the same ones. Hopefully, the floor will be completed today, but I don’t think I will get the baseboards finished.
