Laminate flooring one of last steps in community building project
Laminate flooring one of last steps in community building project Since a flood made their house unlivable in 2007, Raelene McElvain and her three daughters have lived in the top floor of a 42-year-old mobile home,comma but they will not have to for much longer. The Chronicle reports that the finishing touches are being put on an extensive renovation to McElvain's original abode.
According to the news source, rebuilding the house was a community effort, as more than 140 sponsors chipped in on the project, and more than 200 volunteers have contributed to the building process.
"The project would not be possible without the sponsors, donors and volunteers that have taken out of their personal time to do this," Andrea Roe, one of the organizers of the project, told the news outlet.
There are only several more steps to take in the process, according to the news provider. Among the pieces that need to be installed are granite counters, plumbing fixtures and laminate flooring.
Homeowners who are looking to install a new floor in their home may want to consider laying laminate flooring. TLC.com reports that laminate can mimic the appearance of other materials, and also provides individuals with a durable, long-lasting option.
