Yours is a really special looking job. That would be my first choice....easily. If I were making a wish. Was that floor laid prior to installing the cabinets? Is it doable after the interior is installed? I assume that nails hold the floor down....correct? How far do they penetrate and how did you deal with the metal under an in the bus floor? Why Cypress? It is pretty but is it hard? Was any glue used?
Thanks for the pics,
The floor was installed after all the cabinets were installed. We did remove the dinette, sofa, and chairs to install the floor. The Australian Cypress is moderately hard (harder than cedar, but not as hard as oak). The floor is 7/16" thick and was installed using 1 1/4" flooring nails and a flooring nailer. Floor is nailed to the new 3/4" plywood we installed after removing all the OEM wood floor inside the bus. The only metal we had to contend with were the 2 metal strips that the OEM seats bolted to. We just put a flooring nail on either side of the metal strips. Jack
