Basement Laminate Flooring Installation

Just 2 days ago, I posted this photo of the bare floored hallway in our basement . Last night, here's what the same hallway looked like with the new floors.  It is really starting to feel like a finished space. And here's what the main room looks like with the floors installed.  They're called "hand scraped" - which Nat picked out - and look pretty nice installed.  They're a wide board, too, which is different than what I've seen in lots of places.

Flooring Has Arrived, but We're Delayed

We're now way past the 48 hour 'acclimation period' - where the wood floors have to sit in the space and adjust to the conditions of the room where they'll be installed - but unfortunately, the self-leveling concrete isn't fully cured yet, so the flooring guys came and went this morning; promising to come back first of next week.  We had a few 'patches' to make in the floor yesterday that caused the delay, but I now have a little space heater running down there, so it should speed up the process. That means that we're going to be busy painting everything - the walls and maybe even some of the trim - before it gets hung - this weekend.
