Transition Strip

I have not updated in a while, and I thought that I should write a few lines as to what's up. I have not been able to get any interest in my upsidedown home, So we will think about our next option.  I decided to put a sprinkler system in the front yard, just to make it easier to care for, in the event that we stay for a while. I think that I can do it for just a few hundred dollars myself.  I will post some pictures as I can.  I replaced the aluminum transition strip in the MoHo (Motor Home), and changed the oil. The transition strip was where the previous owner replaced the front carpet with some very nice bamboo flooring. However; when the did, they put an aluminum strip between the tile kitchen floor and the bamboo flooring. The tile had a notch of about 4"s at the edge of the J couch. This left a very sharp point in the aluminum 90 degree turn. I was afraid that someone would get hurt if the were to catch their bare foot on it.  In came the wood replacement. I'm happy with the results, and we love the bamboo flooring in the front. I didn't put out the slide for the picture, but you get the idea.  I still may sand the point a little. I guess that is all for now, be safe.


  1. Really like that bamboo flooring in the MoHo...and the new chairs. Will check out Costco when we get to Tucson.

  2. You did a very good job with the transition strip and saved a good chunk of change by doing it yourself.

  3. I think the wood transition strip looks great. Much better looking than an aluminum strip.

  4. I really like bamboo. We (Annie) put down Allure in the Duck, which is pretty low-maintenance, too.

    Do you guys live primarily in Texas?
