    Hi Joe,

    Attached is a drawing of my flooring project. The house first floor is ~1200 sq ft with a full basement and 3/4” plywood sub floor. I’ll be starting with the hall, living/dining rooms and the kitchen and I’ll finish the family room later. Family room is 1/2′ lower than the rest of the house.

    Needing advice on the plank direction and where to start. I am thinking of going W > E (see attached 3D render) and starting in the hall so that I wouldn’t have to work backwards in any other rooms, only a small area between the hall and family room.

    I am including video walk through of the first floor and some pics, including a plank. It has a cork pad and as you suggested in your videos I’m not planning on using additional underlayment.

    Here’s the plank that I’m using: https://www.flooranddecor.com/nucore-performance-flooring/whistling-hills-rigid-core-luxury-vinyl-plank—cork-back-100698356.html

    Appreciate all the help you provide!

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    God Bless.

    Hey Joe, thanks for your response!

    Yes, I meant to say I’ll run the plank north to south, same as on 3D render. I agree that it looks better that way.

    Joe, can you also explain the best way to property stagger planks to make it look more random?

    Thanks in advance!

    The software I used for the plan and 3D rendering called MagicPlan (www.magicplan.app). I like the application for how easy it is to build floor plans, but unfortunately it only works on iOS devices: iPad, iPhone, etc. Also with the free version you can’t change plank orientation and design, but I think it’s available in the paid version (https://www.magicplan.app/integrations/floorplanner).

    Also I’m worried that if I start from the living/dining room, by the time when I get to the hall, if walls and angles are not perfect (they seem ok), it would be more noticeable in the hall.

    Hey Joe, if you can, can you take a look at it tomorrow? I’m done with leveling the floors and planning on starting installation after lunch tomorrow.

    Thanks in advance!
