This is a follow up post for those who have been tracking our building project. Since the last few posts, many people have inboxed asking about costs and how to get started. As an update, we’ve started working on the floors.
I won’t lie to you. It’s slow and frustrating as you work to get the resources to make things happen.
I chose to use tongue and groove flooring (T & G as hardware people like to call it.) There are different kinds of T & G flooring. The newer types have grooves on all sides that allow the boards to snap into place. They look great but are more expensive. I chose to go old school, primarily because of cost.
If you need some direction, please feel free to message me. I can give you rough estimates of how much it will cost and where you might be able to get them.
I don’t like plywood floors. Plywood is convenient. But it doesn’t look as pretty as T & G.
