We originally had laminate flooring on the main level of our home. It was still in decent shape but it was 10 years old. It is waranted for 15 years so we had discussed taking out some carpet in the living room and replacing that and all the laminate with red oak. We got a good deal on 3/4" x 2 1/4" solid red oak. We also decided to do some details around an area rug in the living room and around the dining room table. Well here it is in progress! My wife, myself, 14 yr old son, and a couple brothers have been working on this part time. Living room and a couple halls are installed. Dining room, kitchen and breakfast nook are started. All in All we will be installing about 1100 sq ft. Staining and 4 coats of Poly to finish it all off.
Keep IN MIND we have never done anything crazy like this before.
