*FINALLY* the floor starts going down

I was at Hilton Head Island for the week with my sister while “Bob” worked with a few different helpers.  I came home last night to see (drumroll)


Bamboo started in the bedroom!

“Bob” says the screwing won’t work because it blows out the tongues of the panels (even with countersinking).  Apparently strand-woven bamboo is harder than any other kind of floor he’s put down.  So he says he’ll go with the recommended cleats with a nail gun.  The good news is that this will go a lot faster than the original screw plan.

He says he’s waiting for clement weather to put in the remaining two windows in the room.
