Looks great! I bet your feeling pretty good about being so close to done. But now what are you going to do on weekends!

It is laminate from Lowes. It's a floating floor with a vapor barrier underneath, each board is 3 strips wide so about 8 or 9 inches wide "click together"

Each board interlocks, when you get to the end the last piece will generally be too wide so you rip it down on the table saw to a width about a 1/2" short of the wall. Then just engage the joint and fold it down in place with some general tapping, wrestling and maybe a curse or two . Base and quarter round covers the gap. In my case I laid the floor before the drywall so in large areas where I did a good job just the thickness of the drywall and the base board was enough. On the outside wall I drifted out a bit too far on one end so I had to add the quarter round. Doorways get T moldings or transition strips.

Got the vinyl down over the weekend along with most of the trim, painted the french door and removed the masking. I have a bit more base molding still to do and then about a million nail holes to fill before the trim gets it's finish coat of paint

Thanks .

I did a little caulking and nailhole filling on the base and door trim over the weekend. Probably about 50% finished with that. The pressure is off now that the major construction is finished, it's basically usable space as I go about handling the final details...

It's been a while! Still haven't finished all the nail hole filling and trim painting but I did get the electrician back to heat up all the new outlets and had the inspecter back last week to sign off on the final

This weekends project was the first of 3 bookcases to organize things. Got one done today, 3/4" birch ply for the carcass, 1/4 luan with one good side for the back. A little 3/4" poplar ripped down to cover the front edges then a little roundover work with the router and some crown added at the top.
