Well let me ask you a few questions-


  1. Are you thinking about doing a flooring project on your own?
  2. Are you searching for “how to videos” for a flooring project?
  3. Maybe your looking for some guidance from articles that have been written about your project.
  4. Are you looking for what tools or supplies you’re going to need?
  5. Not sure where to even start and a project planner is what you are searching for?

My friend John is a homeowner. He’s OK with his hands and he enjoys doing projects around the house with his wife. They love the satisfaction it gives them when they do it themselves.  Not to mention the money they save. It’s not about the money though. It’s really the enjoyment of doing the project themselves

John works in a office during the day and he is a DIY warrior by night(and the weekend of course). He is always at Lowes or Home Depot looking for the next tool he wants to add to his arsenal at home, while his wife is looking at paint, wallpaper, tile, lights(you get the point). They love to dream while going up and down all their favorite aisles.

Speaking of dreaming- Several times a week you can find their eyes glued to the screen while they watch HGTV. Dreaming again of what they could next.

John has decided to install Laminate Flooring in his Family Room. He did some research on line and stumbled onto sothatshowyoudothat.com. He found several videos that showed him how to install laminate flooring.

He read several articles that talked about the tools he needed, brands of  Laminate Flooring that were highly recommended, what problems he could run into and how to conquer them.

He had me email some  quick checklists  which helped him with things needed such as Tools, Supplies, Materials and where was the best place to get them.

He also found  My Project Planner-Laminate Edition that went through the entire process and really came in handy when they went to Home Depot. It had a materials list, checklists for tools and supplies, a measuring guide, a  waste calculation sheet, cheat sheets to help with lay out process of his Laminate floor(fractions to decimal chart), a floor prep guide, and  a My Flooring Project Budget Sheet. Yes I did say the B word!

He had a few questions so he went to my contact page and sent me an email. He was also able to go to the forum and check out what others were asking and he found an answer to a question he had.

I really enjoyed helping  John and his wife. I have helped many men and women with their flooring projects like Tile, Carpet, Vinyl Flooring, Luxury Vinyl Tile, Wood Flooring and Laminate Flooring.

It’s my goal to have information that is relevant, easy to understand and all in one place. My hope is that you will find this at sothatshowyoudothat.com and you will think so too.

Thank you so much for coming to my site and giving me the opportunity to help you. If you have any suggestions or questions you can either leave a comment below or email me at Joe@sothatshowyoudothat.com. You can also go to my contact me page.
