Wow, this thread got busy this weekend.

I knew about cutting the jambs and all that, i was just concerned about the luan on the subfloor. I removed it all this weekend and it was a good thing I did. Turns out the dishwasher had leaked sometime in the past and there was mold between the subfloor and the first layer of luan.

All in all it took me about 6 hours to lay the floor in my dining room, another 4 hours to remove the click lock laminate and the luan in the kitchen. So far looks pretty good. I'll try to get some pics up tomorrow.

And somebody asked what kind of floor...
I'm nailing down 4" wide hand scraped bamboo...

Redoing all trim...baseboards, doors, windows, the whole nine yards...

At a standstill right now...The bamboo requires an 18 gauge flooring nailer and they are expensive, so a friend that owns a flooring store let me use his nailer...But he needed it this week for a job...So i'm stuck till i can get it back...

New cabinets getting delivered this weekend and I should be back in business next week...

Thanks for all the comments..

Just look over the mess. I have to move things from one side to the other...back and forth. I have nowhere to put anything...

Looks like a good install and a good mix with some serious color variation. A couple seams look a bit close.... but you'll get that.

Looks great

I had to do the same thing when I installed my floors. I packed one of my spare bedrooms full of stuff.
