    Another flooring question:

    Upstairs is 3 bedrooms and then the common hallway. Is it odd/weird to have the floor transition at each of doorways if needed in order to suit the layout/direction of the bedrooms?

    Depending on the layout, I generally install down the longest run and then start a reverse course to marry up at each door - so it all flows together. Having said that, some layouts are better suited to switching directions, in which case a transition is used across the door opening where the change occurs.

    It’s really a question of personal taste, I suppose. ...but a transition -free flow is generally nicer, IMO. It’s a bit trickier to install that way but worth it, if it suits your floor plan. My only pet-peeve is when people DIY or hire a hack that uses raised transitions in the latter option. A floor should be flat and free of impedance.

    I'll up a pic from the drawings so we are all referencing from more of the same place...

    Below is the floor plan. If It's given that the hallway floorboards will run north/south, then the question is should it continue that way in some/all the bedrooms.

    My initial take is:
    Master: floor transitions from the hallway and runs east/west (perpendicular to the window, but flows with the direction of the bed on the west wall)
    Middle: floor runs north/south (again perpendicular to the window, but flows with the bed direction and the eye when one opens the bedroom door)
    Front: east/west, flowing with the bed direction/placement)

    Thoughts encouraged...

    Speaking of floors...

    A good friend and colleague of mine just finished this beauty. I often do flooring installs as part of larger projects but when I sub-out, I always use Ian @ Down With Floors. A proper dude and fine craftsman.

    Not sanded yet and will post a pic of the final result. Full glory job. Thought it was worth sharing.

    I really like this photo and the way the floors are made. I'm sure, they will look even more appealing, when they are sanded. Mondieu, will you publish the photo of the ready made floors here?

    Pay no attention to him, Martha. You seem sane...you'll do just fine on here.

    The only thing JamesM's ever beautified and renovated was his vomitus bucket at the side of his bed.

    What happened to the part of his post where he called Tribe a "clusterfuck"? I was going to comment that that is pretty just him.
