My "line" is bowed 1/4" in the middle
Just a reminder that I had to lay the front room, then connect it to the back room on the left side of the photo before continuing on. Reminder that the wall in the living room is 2.5″ thicker than the wall in the back. Good times.
Anyway, I have finished the living room and connected it to 3-4 rows in the back room. But when I was making sure they were square to the line, I noticed that the middle part is slightly off. meaning that the area in front and just around the stairs is 1/4″ closer to the line than the rest of the flooring. I’ve got the rest of the rooms to do, and they all feed off this main line, so this could be a big deal.
Here’s a video explanation, along with an adorable granddaughter playing on the floor. :
1. It’s no big deal. It’s only 1/4″. Ignore it.
2. A bowed line like that is going to cause more problems as I lay out the rest of the house. I’ve got to fix it. I can see if I can make the whole line straight by moving the rows of planks in the family room closer to the line, and straighten out the whole line. This would, of course, cause the whole line to be slightly not square to that center line, but having a straight line is more important.
3. This was caused by the first room being not quite square to the center line in the first place. (True) I need to rip and replace everything and make it square to begin with.
