Nice! anyone can throw money at it . Few can say I did it myself.  Like it!!!!   Bob     I was going to take $ comment out after sleeping on it--but not really. What I mean is any one can hire it done.  You do it yourself :in this case probably better that pro: you also get bragging rites.  Priceless!!   Bob in the morning.

I used laminated Formica floor covering-- tough as nails.

Did you let this floor float or did you tack in to the existing wood floor?

We will be replacing our flooring and are considering the engineered floor also. We chose high gloss teak cherry.

You did a knock down job on the stairs and flooring....something to really proud of!
