Floor Remodeling: Day2 (Glued down laminate is a pain!)

By , December 7, 2010 3:48 pm

We tackled the remaining carpet and started to work on removing the existing laminate. We knew there were some pieces that were glued down, but did not know that all the pieces where glued down. Some of the pieces on the ends were heavily glued down. It was a pain removing the glued down laminate! The floor was not only glued down but a portion of it went under the cabinets and doors!

We had to get a floor scraper to get under the glued laminate to lift it up without taking too much plywood with it.  We also had to get a hand saw cut around the edges of the cabinets/doors that we couldn’t pry loose.  Fortunately we got most of the laminate removed today. There is a small section that we’ll tackle tomorrow.

In review, on Day2 we did the following:

  • ripped up padding and carpeting on the remaining section
  • removed existing molding and quarter round
  • removed all electronics equipment from RV because of remodeling dust
  • covered sofa and other items because of remodeling dust
  • removed a large portion of glued down laminate flooring
  • removed all tacks and staples from floor
  • made two trips to the hardware store

EndDay2

We still have not decided on what to do about our seat belt dilemma from Day 1. We shall address that when the time comes.

    David said that an angle grinder works wonders. 🙂 Hope you are having fun. (ok, I know you are not…but we can at least hope.)
