With a trailer loaded with 3,000 lbs of flooring,
a side-by-side fridge, a double stack washer &
dryer, & stove, the trek to the mountains begins.

  Getting started right is the most important
  part of installing a hardwood floor.
  This is 4 1/2" x 3/4" thick pre-finished oak.

Using an air hammer made for installing
   hardwood, you pound with a hammer to
   release the air and drive the nail.

   In areas too close to the wall to
   toe nail, Bob used a 2" brad nailer on the
   face of the wood to hold the flooring in place.

Placing the stove in position.

  The kitchen is almost complete..

Moving in the fridge.
