We have a rambling floorplan and I’d love your expert guidance. I started to sketch it out, but had to abandon the effort and draw walls on a photo of the foundation blueprint. We intend to run 9″x72″ vinyl SCP through most of this level.
The longest straight run is the entryway, with the dining room in front and hallways to left and right. The east hallway has a bed/bath on one end, passes stairs and laundry, then ends at kitchen/living room. The west hallway passes the study, then ends at the master bedroom. We plan to follow your hallway rule and run plank longwise down the 2 halls. I’ll have lots of questions, but first off, where to start?
Option A: Start at the bottom right wall (living room) and work my way west. That would minimize working backwards. However, that wall has built-ins, so I’m less confident that I could get a nice straight start.
Option B: Start on the bottom left and work east. That gives me an easy wall to start on, but puts me backwards into a few feet of the master, all of the study, and a short bit of hall into the northwest bedroom.
Option C: Maybe you see a better third option?
Thank you so much, finding your website has been a blessing!

I hope you can hear me, I just realized my mic was on my other desk.

Oh, I am so sorry, I attached the wrong floorplan file! I had one cleaned up in photoshop and labeled. Looks like I posted the one I scribbled on my phone while brainstorming. 😬 I’m impressed you were able to make sense of it! I won’t bother you during family time… I’ll get the right file on here tomorrow, then you can let me know if I should try again on the software. Thank you!

This should be the correct floor plan file! I’d love to know how you would approach it. Shaded areas are cabinetry, red marks are exterior doors. Thank you!
