While filming an tour with Gypsy Wagon Builder Terry Stringham at the 2017 Tiny House Festival near St. Augustine Florida, the subject of Paper Bag Flooring (and how to do it) came up.
Terry, who had used that very approach for the flooring of his ultra-light tiny house, then went on to explain all the steps and materials involved- which, again, are surprisingly SIMPLE!
The video explains all:
-An abundance of paper bags (easy to find)- newspapers and maps work too (we talk about it in the clip) http://amzn.to/2EYKiOK
-Minwax water-based poly-sealant (gloss or satin- your choice)- Here is the link to grab some....
-A spray bottle
AND THAT'S IT!
And this can all be made with old paper bags which might otherwise be trash to most!
