    Step 1. Watch Youtubes of peeps putting in wood flooring.
    Step 2. Buy wood flooring and tools and put it in.

    Thanks, a friend has been helping me out bigtime. Every Sunday he gives me 4 hours or so and we go to town.

    Had a few planks I needed to pull out when I did mine and it was damn near impossible with those staples. Only bad part is when you get close to a wall. Wish it could get a little tighter.

    Damn, wish I had that. Just a good ole' pry bar here. That would have saved the tongue on some adjacent boards for me.

    Fabulous. In that last pic there is a small opening. How do you fill that in? Do you just have to cut a very thin piece? That seems like it would be hard.

    Yeah, I have to cut some pieces to fit in there, then nail them down from the top. It looks small, they will mostly be covered by the molding I bet.
