Uneven Flooring... help please...


Hi all,
My name is mike and I recently took down a wall seperating the kitchen and dinning room. The kitchen is part of a newer addition build years after the house was built. After the wall was removed, carpets and laminate floors torn off, , beam was installed, I realized the hardwood flooring is 1/2'' higher in the addition room then the rest of the house. The idea was to put hardwood floors throughout the now 1 large kitchen. I will be installing an island that would overlay both sides of the rooms . How would one recommend fixing this issue without having a rise or step-up, since the island wont allow this.

Screw 1/2" thick plywood to the sub \floor on the lower side.

That was easy...where's my button?

Andy.

Yep Add the Plywood is correct . the only thing I would look out for is ,if the dishwasher will slide in and out . Or if you have to raise the cabinets where the dishwasher will go also .
