Anyone have any suggestions of what a low cost, "homestead" type flooring could be?
I have seen some pretty nice things done with plain old plywood subfloor. When my wife and I build next year, we are planning on screwing down subfloor then staining it and sealing it with polyurethane. That will look good and hold up just fine for a few years until we have the money to install higher-quality, permanant flooring.Unregistered said:Anyone have any suggestions of what a low cost, "homestead" type flooring could be?
The floor i am resting my tired feet on right now is nothing but dirt covered with 2 layers of 6 mill black plastic and then a layer of carpet (found that in front of an apartment complex where it was being thrown away) on top. The entire area to be covered needs to be dug up slightly (rototiller works fine if you have ample ventilation) and any rocks, roots, sticks and other objects that may puncture the plastic raked out. Level the area, then tamp with a 2x4 or 4x4 or 3 to 5 inch diameter pole untill it is all firm to walk on with no soft or springy spots. Fill in any low spots and tamp again. After it looks and walks level, lay down the plastic and then the carpet and move on in.Unregistered said:Anyone have any suggestions of what a low cost, "homestead" type flooring could be?
