    Joe, thanks for helpful comments. I would like to get a blueprint; no rush, my flooring won’t be here until Nov….

    I’ve attached a drawing that answers some of your questions. In the upper left is a tile with the two Tongue sides marked.

    At the lower right, you had expressed that layout might not work against the wall, but that’s not a wall, it’s open to the family room, which is carpeted. So wherever the full tile ends is where we’ll run the new carpet up to.

    You asked about the wood floor in the dining room; it will stay. When I installed the cherry T mold, I screwed it down with trim screws so it can be easily removed and replaced. Same deal with the laminate floor in the office, except there I made a transition out of oak to match the old hardwood floor. I’ll replace that with T mold that matches the new floor.

    Let me know if you have any other questions, and thanks again.
