Alright, I appreciate the feedback. I am trying to get it pretty squared up, but I am not convinced the entryway is square!

I'd hate to come this far and have it look shoddy...
It appears to be shoe mold to me. Also looks like it's glued down. Liquid nails, maybe?

Steps will be made to make that doorframe look a little nicer, but is this okay?
This will work fine. They make wood thresholds that will mount between the wood and the aluminum threshold you have there, to leave a nice finished look.

Something like this:

See if they have it in the color of your floor, and be sure the it's wide enough to cover the gap between the new wood and the metal threshold. Be sure to pick up some finishing nails, and a tube of liquid nails, and some wood putty if you don't have them already.

When I'm adding the second piece to the row, is there a better way than hammering it into place? I feel like I am missing something...

And I just cut my first of hopefully not to many pieces from the wrong end. What's sad is I actually stood there for a few seconds trying to think of a way I could re-cut it to fix it...I'll save that for something else along the way...

Bad Luck. You needed about another half inch. That would give ya a 1/4 in gap along the wall also. Now when you connect the next plank to that one, you'll have to probably rip the one along the wall a little. Not a big deal. Looking good man. Looking real good.

It's the most fun I never want to have again!

On a side note, I managed the hallway and a couple transitions. Pictures to come later...

So after doing battle with the hallway wall in a way I'd almost rather not admit, this happened...



And then I looked at the other side, and this happened...



So after a nice motivational speech from my wife about how this is not okay, this is why we should have had a professional do it, now I've ruined the floor, the house, the project, the flooring of her dream, and her life, we are currently residing in separate rooms and I'm debating if there is a way to fix this or if I should just tear it out and start over. It seems like there should be a way to fit something in the one lengthwise gap and secure it with wood glue or something. As for the other, maybe a putty or something?
