Just joined the DIY forum today and I have a question for the experts out there.
I am making our own hardwood flooring from the trees cut down on our property, mostly white oak and some poplar and pine.
This is seasoned wood and has 9% moisture content.
The flooring will be installed on the first floor ( we have a full basement that is dry and also insulated in the ceiling of the basement).
What do you all suggest for a vapor barrier over 3/4 Advantech plywood?
I am doing tongue and groove and I need to know if it is necessary to make the tongue and groove on the end of the piece also.
Do you suggest relief cuts on the backs of the wood?
Appreciate your response. Anxious to get this project underway!
