There was a thread recently on plank flooring ... but I didn't see it during a quick cruise of titles so I figured I'd just start up another one. Anyone who is curious to see how the wide plank flooring (no tongue and groove finish, screwed to the floor) is installed is welcome to have a look at my blog, I put up step by step pictures and a description. http://applejackcreek.blogspot.com/2006/08/flooring-step-by-step.html I'd have gotten more of it done this weekend had my newly acquired LGD not gone on a tour of the county (he was found tonight, thankfully, and is passed out beside the straw bale in the sheep pen ... I have everyone locked in the pen this evening as I suspect after 3 days of wandering Bob is too tired to be much of a lookout!).
