Construction Update - Walking the Planks

We got quite a bit done on the flooring last week although we didn't get it finished (no thanks to freezing pipes among other issues).

I am liking the pine laminate look. It's not real pine, but when on the budget building method, it gets the job done. And still looks rustic enough for a cabin-y look. The planks snap together and aside from a few cutting errors, we are working our way from one side of the house to the other.

We still need to finish the dining room and kitchen and then we'll be ready to order and hang our interior doors. No more curtain for a bathroom "door". Hooray!

I like the flooring! We need to take up the carpet on our "canal cottage" (not that I am comparing our trailer home with your beautiful cabin) so I am interested in floors again these days.

I enjoyed the updates on your project below (and brrrr!).....
It's fun to follow your hard work!

Hooray! As someone who is still living with unfinished floors and bare drywall five years after starting our home-renovation project... I say sometimes the fast way is the best way! ;-)

It looks very handy and like you said it gets the job done efficiently. Congratulations on the new bathroom door! Sounds like you needed that.
