Our new flooring
« on: October 10, 2007, 05:36:52 AM »
The attached photos show the original flooring, how it looked after they ripped it out, and the new flooring.  We are extremely pleased with both the flooring and the work done by Bradd & Hall here in Elkhart.  They finished the job in less than 2 days, ahead of the original estimate.

Ned:

It looks great! All this because you needed a bolt in your chair. ;D ;D

Funny how one thing leads to another.  You should know that most of all :)

Looks really nice Ned.  What type of wood did you use?  I'm asking because we keep going back and forth with putting wooden floors in our new house being built.  We are getting mixed information as to whether the dog and cats will scratch the floor with their nails.

Good Job!!

Has it cooled down in Elkart?  It was pretty cool this morning in Ft. Wayne.

Now Sasha will just slid from the living area through the Galley before bumping into the wall. :D

Sasha does NOT like the floor.  The first time she jumped up the steps, she slid right into the couch.  Now she doesn't want to climb the stairs :)  Of course, everything else slides too now that there's no carpet to hold things in place.  We need to get some non-skid for the recliner so it doesn't move around.

Marsha, we put in Moderna SoundGuard laminate from BHK.  It has it's own backing so no padding is needed.  It's very scratch resistant.  The temps dropped last night and today we're in Indy and it's 56F right now which is about the forecast high for today.

That's a great looking result Ned, congratulations to you and Lorna. One request - please don't show Chris, or I'll be nagged until we do something similar. She really would like to replace the carpet in our coach, although it's not that old.

Ned: 

Looks terrific.  I became a loyal Bradd and Hall fan after they helped us remodel our Bounder several years ago.  They do quality work and don't waste any time at all.

Tom, then you had better not let Chris online to see the photos :)  Hm, perhaps I'll email them to her.

Margi, yes, B&H do excellent work and they finished ahead of schedule.  We only had to spend one night at the B&B.  The job was done the first night.  And they fixed my broken recliner at no charge even before we ordered the flooring.

Any truth to the saying that replacing flooring in your RV is synonymous with changing your tires (i.e. buy new tires, then buy a new RV)?

Nope, no truth at all to that statement.  Just the opposite, with the money we left in Elkhart, we'll be driving this coach for a long time.  Others have come to the same conclusion recently :)

We may put a fresh coat of paint on someday, but we're keeping this one.  It's built better than most of the newer stuff, and has had fewer problems too.

Well Tom, we'll buy a new coach when you make us a loan at 0% APR and $1 down and $1 a week :D

Sounds like good terms we might even go for that Tom in fact we would even go as high as $5 a week. ;D ;D

LOL Ron, there's absolutely nowt wrong with that beautiful Eagle. I was somewhat salivating over Gary & Nancy's Tradition. American Coach sure makes a good product.

Thanks Tom, as you know we are very happy with the Eagle.  Like Ned it is very unlikely we will be replacing it.

Ned and Lorna,

Your new floor looks GREAT!!  :)  Thanks for all the photos, especially before and after.  We both enjoyed seeing them.  It must have been funny to watch Sasha initially.  I know, I'm mean, but it would have been funny anyway.  ;)

ArdraF and JerryF too

Ned,

The floor looks great!

We've pretty much come to the same conclusion after a lot of talking and research on a new 5er.  Ours ain't broke and who knows what you will run into with a new one.

Ardra, we should have shot a video the first time Sasha ran up those steps.  She's finally figuring out that if she goes slower she won't slide so much.  Old dog, new tricks :)

Joel, welcome to the club :)  You can do a lot of remodeling for a fraction of the price of a new RV.

New floor looks great. But I do feel sorry for Sasha ... maybe you could get her some sticky sole booties so she doesn't slip?

She has boots, but only for the rain.  She'll just have to learn to cope with the floor.
