Screwed in Seattle
I'm embarking on an addition project that I've been planning for the last three years, and wouldn't you know it – the company that made the laminate flooring I'd like to match in my existing structure has discontinued it!

The hunt is on for 8mm "Mountain Pine" manufactured by Lumber Liquidators in their "Dream Homes - Nirvana" line (see photo attachments). A similar style would be their 12mm "Colorado River Pine" which (watch this now) has ALSO been discontinued. Incredible.

Hopefully, maybe someone has extra, or is even taking up their Mountain Pine laminate and needs to get rid of it. Or perhaps someone could recommend a similar looking option. I'm willing to travel from Seattle within reason to pick it up. Looking for roughly 800 square feet... and crossing my fingers.

Many thanks,

-Peter

Hello there, Screwed in Seattle. I am Screwed in Philadelphia. I am only looking for 300sq feet of the Mountain Pine as we only have one remaining room to finish. We were told last week that there were 400 sqft in Ontario Canada, called again today and someone from the US drove there this past weekend and bought it. So I did some googling today and you are all that I came across. Have you had any luck? You are looking for 800 sq feet?

I could take apart the stuff that I have, my husband was talking about replacing everything. But would you think it be crazy expensive to ship it?

believe Lumber Liquidators are the manufacturer of Bellawood.

floor coverings are pop-up items... many are only around for a year or two, and then discontinued. I always make sure I have enough left over after a room to make my wife growl, and when we inevitably have to replace something due to pet damage or another job, I have what I need in the garage lofts.

always, budget an extra 15%, and if you are done and have opened the last box, immediately run down and get another.

I have seen several cases on TV where the astute homeowner has bought all the flooring they will need to finish the whole house, and have it stored off the concrete in the garage. silly at the time, but they look like geniuses a year or two later.

sorry you're having issues. now you're going to have to carry a piece with you and find something similar or complimentary at just about every flooring store in your area.


sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?
