But guess what? I WAS WRONG. Even though I had read about the importance of floor leveling and read stories about floors have high spots and low spots, for some reason I believed MY floor was level. IT WAS NOT.
Here's the status at the end of Day One of the install.
My dining room still contains TWO computer desks.
My breakfast room still contains one half of the contents of the family room. The other family room furniture and the breakfast room table and chairs are in our garage.
It didn't seem fair or realistic to show you only photos of "The Good".
At the end of Day One, the leveling compound was drying in the master bedroom.
The grinding was complete, after a two hour delay when the wiring burned up in the grinder and the leveling compound was drying in the family room.
The only wood that was installed was in our closets. Look at that wood and the transition to the bathroom tile!
So the actual WOOD installation project will be going full steam on Day Two. If you are planning to install a wood floor allow $1.50 per square foot for leveling prior to the installation of wood. Don't ask me how I know, just take my word for it and be pleasantly surprised it you don't need much leveling.
Tune in tomorrow for Day Three of the Adventure!
