About Me

I am a husband, father, electrical/computer engineer, wannabe farmer, and avid shooter.  I like a good combination of technology and doing things the old fashioned way.  If you asked my wife she would tell you everything is a DIY project for me.  I started this blog to detail some of my projects, thoughts, and things I learned along the way.  We live on a 25 acre mini farm with a house built in the late 1800’s and a hand built 40’x72′ barn.  Naturally many of my projects will revolve around these things.

  1. Looking at bugging the same flooring you used. Lakewood pecan laminate…wondering if you still like it? Is it holding up well or is it terrible? I have five kids and worried they will thrash it! Really need to flooring, but can’t afford the nice stuff, but don’t want to throw $ away on cheap stuff either. Would you buy it again? Need to have flooring picked out soon, hope you get this!!!

    1. Yes, I would buy it again in a second. I looked a bunch of other types on lumber liquidators and other sites that a lot of people have problems with joining the pieces of other laminates together or they have inconsistencies. I have had no issues with this flooring. I have only laid about 400sqft I have about 2600sqft to go this winter. I originally bought a box and hit a piece with a hammer, dropped stuff on it, and other things it held up great. I also have a scrap piece I left outside in the wet to see how it handles water. So far it has been out there months and still looks really good.
