    Thanks again Joe! I am heading out of town for work so I won’t get back to it for about a week. In the mean time I will work on getting the tools and supplies. I’m not to worried about buying the right tools to do the job with the money I am saving by doing it myself. I was an automotive technician for 24 years before changing careers and used to have to spend crazy $ on some tools to do a job.

    What is the best way to estimate how much leveler is needed? Measure the square footage and average the depth needed?

    When I put the level pins down they should be wider than the smoother? Also what the best method to figure out the depth needed, long straight edge? Laser with ruler?
