Bamboo Floors

So...to be more environmentally friendly, my dad decided to have Bamboo installed in his house. Of course, Mike took advantage of the chance to get a new tool...hardwood flooring nailer...


Here are the before pictures...lovely old wall-to-wall carpeting.



And the after...wall-to-wall (almost...room left for expansion of course)...bamboo...carbonized so that it is a little darker and more oak-like in color.

Wow! That looks so good. Is it cheaper than traditional hard wood flooring, too?

Looks nice! My sister has bamboo in her house. I love it! Chris took the chance to buy the nailer when we put down our hardwood. Anything to get a new tool! haha!

exactly! Anything to get a new tool. Bamboo is a bit cheaper than regular wood like oak.
