    Hi Joe! Had some major leveling issues. Got that corrected. In the process of install-again LOL! I am stuck right now because my walls are crooked exterior and interior. I followed the blueprint, the videos and thought I had a plan, but after about 8 rows it looks like the planks are running crooked. Please help SOS!!!

    Sounds like your line might not be straight… If you have humps in your floor that can cause your line to be crooked when you snap your chalk line. One way to check it is to extend your dry stringline all the way across it, pull it tight, lift it up and wiggle it and snap it. Then you can look to see if it lines up with the chalk line. I also just responded to your other message.

    Basically no matter which wall I use to make the measurements for the line snap they are not straight. So after fighting with this for months, I just tried to go off of the exterior wall cabinets. When you reviewed my blueprint, you suggested starting with the hallway running from front door and then moving the line to the kitchen to start my first row.
