What are the rules for laying out the pilot row of hardwood planks through the room? I realize for the 4 wall (rectangular) room it has to start from one of the walls and keep expanding towards the opposite wall. The nailing is always in the tongue of the plank in 45 degree (towards previous raw).
This is quite trivial. Here is more complex situation.
Lets say that the floor is installed in complex shape area and there is no chance to start the pilot line from the left most wall or right most wall, simply because the longest and straightest line is drawn in the middle. Lets say we started the pilot line somwhere through the middle of the area. Is there any know solution how to fill the area between the wall and the pilot line on the grove side of the pilot line. I would not consider running the nails through the top of the planks. It must be some better solution, I trust.
any help is greatly appreciated!
