I've spent the last month or so, every spare moment of my weekend time laying floorboards.
The timber is American Oak, and it supplied by Tait Flooring. The timber comes pre-finished, so you don't need to sand/stain it once it is down.
My father and I have been laying the boards using a Bostich secret nailer and lots of Bostich adhesive. The gluing part of the job is pretty messy, but I think its worth the effort to do the job well.
The top floor is done and I think came out great. It will be good to take a break and work on some other things before the remainder of the flooring arrives.
