One measure is that many of the materials that are needed will be purchased at the Home for Habitat Store. This store has discounted prices; however, the inventory is not predictable. Materials will also be purchased at Home Depot and Lowe's if either one of these issues arises: 1. The price difference is less than a total of $5-10 2. The Home for Habitat Store does not have enough of the item in stock 3. The Home for Habitat Store does not carry the item, or 4. The quality of the item is substantially better at Lowe's or Home Depot. Project Time Constraints This project is scheduled to begin on January 2, 2012.

Conclusion

Materials Herein describes the tools that will be needed to complete each step of the project. In order to find the lowest price, the necessary tools will be the cell phone and the computer with internet access. In order to clear furniture, Anthony will need a space that is at least 50 square feet by 9 feet in height for stacking the items until after the laminate is down. A furniture dolly is an acceptable tool to safely remove large pieces. Removing the carpet will require safety gloves, pliers, utility knife, pry bar, safety glasses, a vacuum, a hammer, and a floor scraper (HardwoodInstaller.Com, 2011). Cleaning the subfloor will require a broom, a vacuum, a mop, disinfectant cleaner, and a bucket. Laying down the laminate will require that flooring be bought, as well as the padding, a chop saw, a table saw, measuring tape, flooring mallet, carpenter's pencils, a laminate flooring pull bar, and a tapping block (Smith, 2007). Trim work will necessitate purchasing the trim and nails as well as a nail gun. Finally, the clean up process will require laminate flooring cleaner and a dry mop.
