Update on the penny floor project

I’ve been meaning to share this post… it’s a little painful. Hopefully it will help others who are considering doing a penny floor. As you can see from these photos, we’ve had some issues with moisture. Hubby thinks it’s probably because we took too long to finish the job. I’m no pro, however (that doesn’t stop me from having my opinion that) I think it’s mostly because we did this on a basement floor. And living in Seattle, our basements can get damp. In reality, we’re probably both right… you can see the pennies starting to discolor in my last post.

Typically we have a small sofa covering most of this up. It was pulled back for a recent visit from one of our kids, hence the deflated air mattress in the upper right corner.

On a side note, my handy hubby built the coffee table out of wine boxes and, of course, corks!

If I had to do it all over again, I think that we would still do a penny floor… we would just try to finish the job a lot quicker than we did.

Bottom line, I’m not a professional penny floor installer (obviously!!! LOL), I am a professional Mortgage Loan Officer. Of course I’m happy to help you with your mortgage needs for homes located in Washington state. 🙂 Click here if I can provide you with a no-hassle mortgage rate quote.
