Awkward Starting Wall
I’m getting ready to lay laminate flooring in my upstairs hallway and I’m stuck on how to get started. I know which wall I want to start on, the direction the flooring will be laid and the fact that I’m going to leave the first row or two open until the end so I can secure the starting row the way you show in your videos. Where I find myself struggling is how to get a good chalk line off of walls that are not linear/straight and in the middle of the wall is a bannister that is open to the first floor. I’ve attached a photo for reference.
I’m sure there’s more information that you will need from me to give a good response, but I just wanted to get the discussion going.
