Looks good but why the gaps at some of the seams. I’ve personally installed a bunch of laminate and vinyl floors and never had gaps like that.

Might be the style. Wide planks like that generally come on “hand scraped” style flooring. Meant to look like worn, vintage hardwood with the board edges rounded a bit from natural wear over time.

The lighting in the photo is kind of harsh too, really makes it stand out.

I definitely had the airplane landing lights on so I could see everything while we were doing the project.

This is Amy's TV room. She has her queen's throne and remotes close at hand. She's not expecting the floor to be in so I can't wait to see her reaction when she gets home Tuesday.

So Amy calls me. She's in Daytona Beach and her battery and brake lights came on. Alternator is bad. I had her rent a car and leave hers up there to get it fixed. Now, I get to take her to work at 5 A.M. then drive all the way across the state to get her car and drive back to pick her up. It will take my whole Thursday.

Worst part is she will not be in a good mood when she gets home. Hopefully the floor cheers her up a bit. Such bad timing for the alternator to fail. Had to be 3 1/2 hours away from home?

Amy loved the floor. Took her mind off her car. The Sonata she rented is actually a pretty nice ride. May have to look at them if we decide to upgrade.
