Another busy weekend working on the new extension, after an equally busy week at work. We called Home Depot on Friday night, to hear that our flooring had arrived. Saturday I put the second coat of mud on the drywall tape in the bathroom, then I went to collect it.
We planned for a dark colored floor and dark colored rear walls, for passive solar effect. It was a sunny day and so all this heat absorbent surface began working well soon after I started laying the floor. I had to go get a bandana to use for a sweat band.
Altogether I laid 32 boxes at 18.5 square feet/box. Two boxes were kept in reserve in case we have a spill or some other damage. This kind of floor can be fairly easily repaired that way, one board at a time.
All the time I was doing this, Aimee was tiling the new shower stall. She's never tiled anything of this magnitude before, but she seems to be doing a fine job. The dayglo pink color is "RedGard," a waterproofing product that can be tiled over.
It won't be long now before we can move some furniture in and use this new building.
But I'm pretty tired now, and my knees are pretty sore, from all that flooring.
