Movila 7" x 20" wood plank tile - bought them at the local bargain outlet. Each bundle had about 2-3 tiles that the ink machine must have been running out it appears. I think that is why the ended up in the outlet store.

Ok guys.. Hardwood set to begin shortly.

Actually softwood and hardwood!

Putting wide plank pine flooring on the second floor and pioneer oak on the first floor.

What is everyone's thoughts? The wood has acclimated for the past 10 days and I'm putting down rosin paper on the second floor. Pine will start first. Wondering if I should run all boards perpendicular to floor joists or should I not be afraid to turn them parallel with the joists.

Also should I treat each room individually thus installing thresholds or shall I run the flooring clear through the interior door openings?

I can't answer any of your questions except the threshholds, and only to say that every job i've seen installs them, including my house. It reduces the expansion/contraction.

I love how far you've come, the exterior is beautiful, can't wait to see your floors installed.
