Today we decided to lay new flooring in the bus! It used to have a dark green carpet which I imagine was close to what the original buses came with, but it just didn’t suit us well. Between Obi and Knox (and I guess sometime us too) the carpets were just starting to get nasty.
While in Medford Oregon we spotted a garage sale that had two boxes of laminate flooring available. Becki talked them into a deal at $5 for all of it! They agreed and I walked the goods back to the bus. We drove the boxes down with us down to McCloud California and then installed it there at a family members house. Luckily for us, there was a guy across the street using a chop saw. He was kind enough to let us use his saw for the project. Thanks guy across the street! 😀
The install was actually very simple. Once you get the cabinets and the carpet out – then you literally just stagger your slats, measure and saw to fit. At first I wasn’t sold on the color. I thought it would clash with the dark cabinets but once it was all in I loved them. Now we can just sweep up any dirt and wipe up any spills. After all is said and done I’m happy with this quick and surprisingly cheap ($5) project! Let us know what you think!
