What type of nails/screws should be used with furring strips?


" leaking water is landing in the sink." not the one with the crack! no wonder bottom fell apart

Just had a thot, many cabs have a 3" toe kick. If you are using 1 1/2 furring strips, stack two edge wise around perimeter of cabinet. Only screws you nedd are enough to hold in place till glue sets. If there are cabinets on each side you don't even have to worry about screws being too long. Couple of supports front to back out in middle bit harder but you could stack and use piece of ply screwed or nailed to sides to hold together, then shoot couple of screw thru new floor into top of furring.Might wanta screw furring to floor B4 putting it in, supports don't have to be full width. You're probably gonna have to use 2 or 3 piece floor to get it in past center style any way so put furring at non cabinet side ends.

Them wild country roaches and ants like to roam free, don't like bein cooped up. Country uncles will come right in, lounge in your favorite chair, smoking big vile cigars and sayin', "Pull my finger."

the cracked sink is in the master bath. the leak is in the second bath. the bad cabinet bottoms are in the kitchen. this house is so frikken screwed up, but hey, at least it doesnt require a total overhaul, just a few things in every room.

You should check the thread started by, helloitsme21 she too is dealing with a screwed up "mature" trailer, hers has a major structural problem that can't be fixed with shelf liners. Maybe the two of you could form a mutual support society.

yeah ive read her threads before. seeing that kind of problem on a trailer i was considering to buy would have had me running the opposite direction, thats just too much work when there are trailers for sale that dont need a whole lot of work. That is the whole reason i have this one, i bought one before that was small and really nicely laid out and i thought that the only thing we would have to do was replace the sheetrock and lay new flooring, but once we opened the walls up, the to do list spiraled out of control and i just said "f it" and traded it off.
