Unfortunately being a short sale we don't have a lot of info. House was built in 1979. Prior to us the house has always been a year round residence - which makes not having any type of garage seem odd. House was vacant less than a year. Previous owner paid more than twice what we paid. That is about all we know.
Last weekend we went down & started the clean up process. There was much more junk left behind than it seemed. Filled up 6 large contractor bags. Pulled up 1800' square feet of the dirtiest ugly carpet. Smell in the house is about 100% better.
Sounds like the right call to me. Hard surface makes a lot of sense in a seasonal place, you can put down rugs where you want them.
I've done a couple laminate floors, our kids rooms, goes down fast and looks good. I will say there is a difference in the quality of the product. The frost one we did was plastic molded to look like wood, and while its not bad, the bamboo floor we did in the other room is definitely better quality in both installation ease, appearance and feel.
After a little research it looks like we will be removing 1800' feet of 3/8" particle board that they used for sub floor. Every where we have looked said it is a no no to put any type of wood floor over it.
Nice. We go to Shelbyville almost every weekend. We keep our camper at Sullivan campground and marina. Our boat will likely be slipped this year at the marina. So maybe we'll see you on the lake when your done with your renovations...
I've often thought about buying some property down there as the prices are reasonable, but we have to much fun hanging out with our camping/boating friends and I like being able to walk or drive the golf cart down to the lake.
So far we have been doing lots of demo. Getting ready for warmer weather so we get going on the exterior projects.
We did sign papers on the boat barn. 30' x 48' should hold anything we want to put in. Should be up by early April. Can't wait. More excited for the pole barn than the house. Pole barn was a better deal than I was prepared for.
Make sure you buy the right blade for your table saw or miter for cutting that wood. Did a laminate floor in my house and that stuff will burn up regular saw blades. Im sure you knew that but thought it was worth mentioning. Congrats on the place and the pole barn much fun shall be had for years to come.
