This is post number 600.

This is what 730 square feet of LVP flooring looks like on a pallet at the loading dock. I ended up buying it at Hernandez Brothers Flooring in Commerce because I didn't like what was offered at a national chain store. I mean, they didn't even carry any choices in 5mm!

The staff at Hernandez Brothers were very helpful listening to what I wanted and matching it with my needs and recommended 5mm Luxury Vinyl Plank (or LVP) flooring. Why LVP? Well the foundation is as old as I am, so after years of wear and tear, its got some imperfections so installing flooring that's 5mm thick actually helps to hide those imperfections nicely.

We took up the carpet, padding and tack strips in three sections and shifted the furniture around for the installation process. 
The livingroom is done! As the largest room with the biggest impact, I knew if I could do this room, the rest would be easy. While the furniture was moved, this also allowed me to paint my accent wall. It was orange for a long, long time. Now it's more of a neutral gray color.
