Hi, I think I feel confident enough to start, but I do have some questions about layout.
I will be doing the entire upper floor in this particular (backed) lvp, but I’m starting in the bedroom, then enough of the hallway to keep things secure for a moment.
I’ve watched Joe’s videos, and just want to run these by for approval or comments.
My baseboards are mdf, and I can’t find them anywhere, so will be using 1/4 round to finish.
The package says to leave 3/8”, can I use 1/4” for ease?
Planks are 7.1”
I’ve lined them up to try out, and I think Joe would recommend using half boards on the edges. If I was lo leave them as is, I’d have a problem with the door entry and hall.
If I’m understanding correctly, a half plank would be followed by a full plank to fit under the door casings.
This is the hallway, which needs some modification in layout as the last board (angled) won’t fit, and I need a half plank on either side, then one to fit/meet the plank on the other side.
Fourth: the space is about 7”
Fifth: how I’m suspecting that Joe would recommend this hallway layout with a half or so on either side)
Unrelated to layout: my flooring wasn’t lying flat until I started sliding it gently back and forth (lengthwise) I don’t think I’ll have a problem as the manufacturer says to install the butt end first, and I’ll add another lengthwise. Staggered, of course, not as I’ve laid it out in the photos
Thanks for any help! I know Joe’s away, but I don’t think I’ll need a blueprint for this room or transition into the hallway The other rooms, more than likely!
