.. they are ceramic tiles. they are installed like normal tiles. the sizing is a bit different with 6x24 planks but they are still just like tiles.

I think that is a great looking floor.

I did one last winter with about the same grout spacing but installed the tiles in a random stagger similar to a regular wood floor. I even went as far as to cut some of the tiles mid-field so as to further disrupt the repeat pattern. It was only a hallway so the repeat wasn't that obvious if it was at all.

glad you approve. i was slightly scared of your feedback...

as for the pattern, i wanted to stagger the pieces a little more to give it more of a random look but the manufacture suggested to only stagger 6 inches.. i have no idea why.. but i did since it was printed on every box

as for underlayment, it's in the basement so it's on a concrete slab. per bud's suggestion before, i measure it to be pretty even so i just laid right on top of that
It would have looked much better if you didnt do such a repetitive and noticeable pattern. Real wood floors are staggered more, yours screams "Look at me I am tile trying to be wood!"
