Glamper Remodel: New Floor Installed

After prepping the floor with self-leveling compound, I painted the entire floor with one coat of kilz. 
Now for the fun!
I chose these!

Armstrong Excelon: Buttercream
Mark the starting location for the placement of the tiles using a chalk line, I wanted my floor to run "on point"so I struck a centerline in the doorway, and a centerline  between the closet cabinet and where the face of the galley cabinets would fall. I used these lines to line up the points on my tiles. 

Use the appropriate mastic and trowel and follow directions for the application of the glue.

Glamper Remodel: Fixing Up the Floor

Once all the cabinets have been removed (remember I left my closet/ice box cabinet), it is time to remove the old floor. My campers original 9" x 9" vinyl tile was relatively easy to "pop" off. What was left behind was another matter. Again, Larry came to my rescue!

At that point, I was able to cut out and replace the center 18" of plywood and sound board and replace both. (It was mainly the soundboard that required replacing.)

In my case, I also needed to add 2 additional 2x4 supports (bolted to the frame) the length of the frame to support the new soundboard and sub-floor. Once installed, I used a self-leveling compound to bridge the old and the new and prepare the sub-floor for the new tile.

Happy Glamping!
