First Floor makeover

We took our 1960's rancher with help from friends and family and made a two story colonial.
Here we are refinishing the first floor with some nice strand bamboo flooring that has a stain similar to hickory. The other picture shows the first floor just after new windows and dry wall were added. The original carpet is still visible that covers the original gun stock oak floor. The original oak floor was badly nicked and damaged. Rather than try to refinish, we wanted to change the look completely.
This really finishes up the first floor.

  • did you lay laminate flooring? I may be tackling this project in the future. Did you use a table saw to cut pieces to length and width? Also what did you need to remove in order to install the flooring? Thanks in advance for your time
