we are finally ready to do something about flooring in our house.
We are looking at the Junckers Oak Wideboard Classic (if people have
ideas for other suppliers, we'd be very interested to hear them).
We are wondering about doing the job ourselves (hence our posting
here). The only thing is that we want a beautiful finish and are
wondering about how skillfully we can install these floors ourselves.
Given their quality (and their cost -- ouch!!), we would rather pay a
professional, than try ourselves and ruin the job. Our main concern is
the joint at the ends of the boards (not the T&G sides), getting these
to have a good perfect fit. Is this something that we can reasonably
expect to do ourselves?
We have done a fair bit of work ourselves (plumbing, rewiring,...),
but are sometimes a bit apprehensive about works like this which are
more "finishing" works.
The opinions of people on this group about trying this ourselves would
be greatly appreciated.
