Installation of Laminated Engineered Wood Floor System

Project: Modern Colonial, Episode 14, Part 3

Mechanical systems are being installed throughout the project house. Specifically, low-voltage Category 5 wiring for voice and data systems is being run in the home.

Erling Andersen of A.I.M. Radiant Heating is on-site to talk about the "Boiler Room in a Box" radiant heating system, as well as a new central vacuum system being installed. At a separate location, Bob meets with Jeff Van Sloun to learn about Owens Corning's Basement Finishing System. Once the basement system is in place, a new Kahrs floating floor system is installed.

Part 3: Installation of Laminated Engineered Wood Floor System
Work continues at the sister project house where a new Kahrs "Linnea" laminated floor system is being installed. Tim Colgan from Kahrs is with Bob to explain the process.

A four-piece construction method is used to make the floorboards. The surface layer is an acrylic coating that protects a decorative wood veneer. The structural layers consist of a high-density fiberboard bonded to a pine backing layer.
This project focuses on the construction of a Colonial-style home built with both history and the future in mind. While the 4-bedroom, 4-bath home will have a traditional exterior and interior detailing, the plan will suit the needs of a modern family, including easy-maintenance fireplaces, a great room, master suite, sun room, 3-car garage, and a large walk-out basement with plenty of room for recreation and indoor/outdoor living.
