First post in the reno section of the new forum! Definitely being counted as one of my finer achievements Continuing on from my somersoft thread: http://somersoft.com/forums/showthread.php?t=106129 Been working on replacing the carpet in the back half of the house (2nd lounge/dining area, hallway, 3 bedrooms). You can see in the second pic, under the carpet was not very nice, mix of different flooring and yellow tongue chipboard. I had a heap of hoop pine I ripped out of an old house getting demolished a couple of years ago. Bought it for 2 cartons of beer and pulled the flooring up myself. Should come up nice once I sand it and polish it. Still have to lay the hallway and the back 3 bedrooms. Get to look forward to doing that tomorrow.
