    Thanks Joe!

    Thursday is absolutely no problem, I’ll attach pictured of the planks here, and will do detailed drawings of the bathrooms later

    We’ve settled on an east-west plank orientation starting on the long north wall shared between the dining and living areas, I think ultimately that will end up being the easiest way to get through all those doorways

    In the hall bath, we’ll likely be replacing the vanity at the same time as the flooring, the toilet is also getting replaced so I’ll just lay around the flange, the plank instructions say the toilet can sit on top, but I’m not concerned about cutting around things, I have track saw/jig saw/oscillating tool/rotozip with jamb saw attachment, etc.

    That bath is also getting a bunch of other refresh work, glued up sheet mirror removal, gfci extended to toilet for bidet, etc so it’s going to be a fair bit of work

    the current floors in the bathroom are sheet vinyl with slight faux grout line so I’ll be pulling that with a combination of heat gun and scraper because I think the level of effort of removing such a small area vs floating is close enough and there’s for sure some loose areas so I might get lucky with a poor adhesive laydown the first time, this house is only 17 years old so I’m not concerned about any sketchy materials in play. Worst case I can switch gears and level/feather but since I don’t anticipate having to do it anywhere else I’m going to do my best to avoid it.
