    Hi Joe,

    I didn’t. I redid the line from the hallway and tried again. It still goes wonky. I thinks it’s because the hallway is so out of square. I think the larger issue is the first row is a little over 50’ long. It’s off by over an inch by the time I get to the end of the row. However, attempting to straighten that much over 50’ causes the butt joints to separate.

    Being this long, should I build 2 or 3 rows a few planks long as I go straightening them with my line till I get through the 50’. Can I do a couple of rows a few planks long then measure and secure them and do that till I get to the end?

    By the way I have removed the baseboard and will use the hammer drill to secure the floor with tapcons.

    Thanks Joe.
