|Thermal layer under floating hardwood/laminate. I used actual duct tape to tape it to the duct -- Did you know Duck Tape, and Duct Tape, while supposedly the same thing, aren't. Duct tape is shiny silver and has a much stronger sticky.|
Did I mention I had already primed (2 coats) all of the new drywall and painted (Benjamin Moore, Dove White) the wall where the toilet and sink needed to be installed. I had. If I could get everything done in time the plumber would seat the toilet the next day -- if not it would be maybe another week before he could get back to me. It was getting finished that night!
|Oh, and the power was off to the bathroom, so I was pulling a late night with only a trouble light to see by.|
|My version of a "Dove Bar" in the freezer.|
So while the paint brushes and rollers full of primer and Dove White paint waited in the freezer the floor went in.
|I am proud of how well I managed jigging into the corners and such.|
The power was still on in the living room so that was the staging area where I cut all the boards to size. There was a lot of sawdust. A lot!
|Those boxes on the left are the sink and toilet waiting to go in.|
|The vent grate had to be trimmed down with metal cutters to fit since the duct was flush with the wall.|
