Here is a way to provide pleasant illumination to outdoor areas for a small amount of money. You can purchase most of the components in a kit.

Installing sub floors.

 

With the floor joists in place, it’s time to put down floor decking, or sub flooring. The sub flooring

forms a base for floor coverings like carpet or wood boards or planks. Use 5/8 or ¾ inch tongue and

groove plywood sheathing for sub floors. Other panel materials you can use as sub flooring include

wafer board and oriented strand board OSB sheathing

 

 

 

 

  1. Apply adhesive to your sub flooring.

Use a caulking gun to apply a bead of construction adhesive to the tops of all floor joists. Adhesive

creates a good bond between floor joists and plywood sheathing and cuts down on squeaky floors.

 

 

  2. Installing plywood sheathing

Because plywood sheathing expands and contracts, leave a 1/16 inch gap between end joints and a 1/8

inch space between edge joints. If you use nails, choose 6d ring shank nails for material up to 7/8 inch

thick and 8dnails for heavier panels. If you’d rather screw down the plywood sheathing, use 2 inch

deck screws. Always stagger panel edges so seams don’t line up across the width or length of the

floor. Start the first row of plywood sheathing with a full panel, and then start the second row with a

half panel.
