My LJ brother and I completed laying 880 sq ft of prefinished oak strip flooring and I have to admit it was the most fun that I don’t want to do again for a while. We rented two senco flooring nail guns and went through 4 boxes of flooring nails and we are happy it’s over. The pictures show the beginning and the completed floor.

Bob, look at it this way that is probably going to be the largest individual woodworking project that you ever complete!! Laying hardwood is fun but it a lot like work as well. The floor looks beautiful and it really gives a nice warn look to the room.

Great looking floor – sore knees and back???? Wood floors really add warmth to a room.
