We finished painting and installing new flooring at a neighbours house yesterday. The flooring was tricky in spots with a lot of undercutting of the baseboard and sometimes removing it all together. All her door casings had plinth blocks.
These were installed when the house was built in 1989. The installer didn’t plan to have them removed EVER. Baseboards were nailed and glued.
With some of those removed we continued with the flooring.
We worked our way into the walk-in closet where things got even more interesting. Jim had to undercut this shelving unit and then tap two boards underneath.
After the closet we were onto the master bedroom.
As you can see we were working around some furniture that couldn’t go anywhere else, mainly the dresser and bed. Once we went as far as possible we moved the dresser out of the way and lifted the bed onto the new flooring so we could continue to install.
When we finished the floor, Jim re-installed the quarter round in this room and the baseboards got a coat of white paint.
Here are a few pictures of the finished job.
Look at that awesome paint job!!
Nice to be finished. It took a total of 3 1/2 days to repair drywall, then paint and floor both rooms plus ensuite. Homeowner was pleased, that’s what counts. On to the next project.
