    Nice house.... Nice floors... Are they real wood? I'm in the process of redoing my hardwood floor in my foyer.

    No, it is laminate floors. I have it in my entire home except for the bathroom. Got it at Ikea. 15 year guarentee. Great price, too. I looked at it up close at Ikea for many visits. They have it in all of their sample floors, and thousands of people go thru that store everyday in Houston.

    I bought it myself and had the builder put it in last summer when they were finishing up the house.

    I like the color too - a bit unusual compared to other colors I've seen (Ikea has like 6 or 8 different colors).

    It looks great! I was going to go the same route, but after pulling up my carpet in my foyer I decided just to sand the real wood... That's 82 years old! What a job, I'm still not finished! It had tons of crap on them...paint, glue, chewing gum, mold...you name it and it was plastered to it. Not to mention the hand fulls of dirt. Here are some pics from what I discovered to the point where i'm at now... I've got a way to go still...

    My mom prev inherited an old house from a friend. They pulled up the old carpet and was prepared to replace it when they discovered hard wood floors. They were in great shape, though. All she had to do was have them re stained...

    Good luck w/ that...

    Installation of laminate floors isn't that cheap, but thru my builder it wasn't too bad. I got credit for all the vinyl and carpet they would have put in, so I didn't have to pay too much more.

    Upgrades to the appliances, upgrades to the cabinets in the kitchen, and the floor itself was all paid for ahead of time - so I don't have to pay 30 years on all that stuff.

    I've got a friend of mine from Belgium who runs a laminate flooring plant here and I can get it from him direct. I may do that for my bonus bed room. Here's a couple of pictures of my living room...you can the some of the foyer before I started the "project".

    What kind of laminate flooring did you use? Back in the late 90's I laid 1800 sqft of Pergo in a house I had.

    2400 - You wouldn't happen to know where I can get alot of fighter jet video footage do you? I'm looking for various video clips so I can piece them together with some music that I've written, for a video. It's music that I've already recorded.

    As stated above, it is from Ikea. It is their own brand.

    It used to be $1.35 per sq foot + .19 cents per sq foot for the roll of foam underneath. I think They have raised the price since last summer to $1.45 a sq foot. It's still an awesome price - it's better than the stuff for $3-$4 a sq foot I see at Home Depot or Lowes.

    I like that it doesn't have a high shine too - so U won't see any scratches if you do make them.

    The photos of the P-51 Mustang sure touched a chord with me.

    My older brother served with the 55 FG, 8th AF in England. After the war, we had a P-51 (Actually F-6s) based here in Memphis with the TN ANG. The ROK Air Force still had a few when I was in Korea.

    I can hear the whine of the Merlin.

    Having never been to an Ikea I had no idea what you were talking about. Thanks for the explaination, when I put the Pergo down it was the best out there.

    Why would you shoot holes in a sign, take it down and then post pics of it?
