April 21, at 1: Hi there, I love how your floor turned out!
I really want to do every room. Hi This looks really great! I was just wondering about spaces or gaps between the plywood strips. I am just worried about dirt being trapped between the plywood planks.
We tried to put nickels in between each board. Some gaps were too big for the nickels. We vacuum and it seems to do the job. Your floors look great!
I never knew plywood could look so nice! I think of plywood as being kind of soft, relative to traditional hardwood floors. Do you have more dinks, deep scratches, etc. With kids and a dog, they are still looking great! I really want to stain all my light oak floors the same dark stain as my family room.
Hi Linda, I love this idea! Do you have any pictures of the nailed down ends close up? Wondering how it looks. Also did you use a sander? We love our floors.
They are holding up very well. I do not have a close up of the nails. If you send me your e-mail I can send a picture to you. We bought A grade plywood that did not need to be sanded.
We did do a light sanding after installation before staining. We did that with a hand sander. We just butted each board against the previous board and nailed it down. So far it is holding up well. I think my favorite part is that your whole family works on these projects together. Have a great Christmas! Hi Linda I love the floor, and after laying to hardwood floors for my parents and knowing the cost,even doing the work myself, I love the idea of the plywood floors, I'm cureently building a small cabin up behind my parents house,for when I visit, and was considering hardwood floors,expensive,lol, then I came across your blog and love the floors, but after doing numerious google searches I can't seem to find a good how to on staining the plywood, What stain did you use, oil or water based and same for condioner and poly coat.
We absolutely love them and they are holding up so well. Then we used Minwax Red Mahogany water based stain. I just put it on with a clean cloth and my husband followed behind wiping the excess off. The polyurethane was Varathane water based.
We brushed on six coats. Let me know if I can answer any more questions. Good luck with your floors. OMG I love your floor! Also did you sand the cut edges before laying floor and did you glue them to the subfloor before nailing them into place? Did you nail them at a angel or straight into the floor?
Do you think this would work for countertops as well giving them a sort of butcherblock look? We did not sand the cut edges. We do glue to the subfloor before we nailed. Nailed them straight in. Not sure about the countertops. Your floor is incredible! I think your answer is really splendid. LOVE the way it looks. I truly appreciate you getting all over off that floor!!! The only thing we would have done differently is we would have to cut the plywood with a table saw instead of the circular saw we had at the time.
We bought a table saw later and life would have been so much easier and the cuts would have been perfectly straight!! We have small gaps but I can honestly say there has been no problem whatsoever. So happy we did it!!! I love the look of this! Just one quick question…what was the foam insulation board on the materials list used for? I don't see it anywhere in the instructional section. We love our floors! The foam insulation board was used to support the plywood sheets while we were cutting them.
In your pattern diagram in step 5 — was there a reason you did not alternate the short pieces from one side of the room to the other rather than having long boards all on one side of the room? Also, the board lengths do not seem to all add up to 19'. You have explained in more detailed. Thank you for that. And did I understand right you had to stain asap. Anything and how long have you have them now wear and tear.
Any upkeep things I need to know. Hope you get this and private email me quilting nemont. I loooove your floors. Ever since we moved in I have been wanting to get rid of this gross carpet…now its 3 years later lol. A couple of questions: How do you clean your floors? Your floor looks fantastic! I have a couple of questions though.
I'll apologize ahead of time if someone has already asked. Did you use the foam board under the plywood over the subfloor? And did you use glue and nails both? We did not use foam board under the plywood. Yes, we used glue and nails. I love how your floor turned out! It looks like it has been about 2. How is it holding up? Were you concerned about the longevity of the floor with the laminate breaking down over time?
I love this idea and told my husband about it, but he thinks that the plies will blister over time. I'd love to know what your thoughts are on the subject. These are gorgeous and the tutorial is fantastic. I think this may be the answer for us redoing about sq. This is my first time visit at here and i am genuinely impressed to read everthing at alone place.
Hi, love the floors1 Its been almost four years now and I want to know if the floors are still in good condition. Have you had to to do any touch ups in this time?
I am thinking about doing this over my existing wood floors. We do not have a solid sub-floor, but wood planks that I have been told cannot be sanded again. I love my family, my God, my home […].
We are laying plywood floors in our family room because we had to rip up the awful stained carpet in that room and ANYTHING would have been an improvement.
I didn't want carpet again. All of our first floor is wood except the family room and guest bedroom. We did our weekly feels like daily run to our friendly neighborhood Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse. We really do have some of the nicest, most helpful people working at our Lowe's. It's a pleasure to go in there and spend our children's inheritance!! This is what we bought: The first thing we had to do was to build a saw guide for our circular saw.
