Thanks a million, Joe, for your wealth of experience and ability to teach!
I plan to run planks east and west per your hallway centered approach. Planks install left to right. I plan to start in south east corner of bedroom closet. (Probably should have flipped picture 180 degrees).
The west (left) side and east side of kitchen are very flat, but both sides rise to the middle inflection. Seems built into 60 year old foundation. Doors are at both west and east ends of kitchen so building up floor to match middle would create about 1″ step up into kitchen at each end.
I think, per your suggestion, maybe the compromise is to run planks in kitchen north and south (while rest of house goes east and west). Prep by sanding high spot — round it out more — then glue those planks to each other to avoid a transition in the middle of the kitchen.
What do you think?
