New Floor for Steve

My son is multiply handicapped. He's not toilet trained and is prone to accidents. I have become quite adept at scrubbing carpets and deodorizing a room. But we have had enough. This weekend, we replaced the carpet in his room with vinyl plank flooring with the hopes that it will be easier to clean.

We still want to replace the flooring throughout out house with hardwood, but wood really wouldn't be the best choice for my son's room. I could have tiled it, but that flooring would be too hard and he would have to find new digs for a couple days. So vinyl it is!

We selected a floating Allure plank floor. It was tough wrestling those planks into place (rarely do they actually "click" together) and cutting the stuff wasn't particularly easy - especially notches, rips, and angle cuts. But it's done. Hopefully, this will work better for him and for us.
