Hi Joe! Thank you so much for your videos on YouTube. What a gift! I’ve been watching them every night for 2 weeks.
I think I understand the layout concepts. I‘ve attached my plan and would like your feedback on where to start laying the planks. My Option #3 is an idea that nearly eliminates working backwards, but might not be physically possible.
Awesome!!! Yes, that SW “BR” only has one doorway. Technically, it’s not a bedroom, as it doesn’t have a closet. It was the formal dining room – you know that 1970’s entry way with the formal dining to the left and a parlor to the right. The Den would legally be the bedroom in that in-law suite. I think I’m good to start!
Been busy and haven’t posted our progress. Got started April 14. Here’s the starter row in the Master BR. I secured with hot glue rather than drilling the slab. This starter row DID NOT MOVE throughout the rest of the room!
MBR / dressing area / closet floor and new baseboards completed 1 week later. The tips and tricks in the videos saved us a TON of time. The doorways are actually FUN to do. Corelux planks lay nice and tight. Floor is square to less than 1/16 inch. Laid 5 courses of temporary planks into the hallway and it’s right on the baseline (and I mean right on).
Been prepping the guest rooms and hallway – start planking them tomorrow. The one downside of doing the whole house is that you’ll move nearly everything you own (at least) twice 🙂
OK, Phase II complete! Guest bedrooms, guest bath hall and main hall done. There are 11 doorways in this area. Loving this project! We’ll be taking a small break before we re-do the living room (Remove-pop corn ceiling, removing paneling, then floor).
That hallway just pops, doesn’t it!? This looks really nice Matt, you did an excellent job on this man! I am looking forward to seeing the entire project when it is done. Can you post this in the completed projects forum when you are done? I would really appreciate that.
