Now I'm leaning toward true hardwood, rather than the laminate. Found out my next door neighbor just did his MB this weekend. He's offered to lend a hand and has all the tools. A little more thinking involved...and a little more coin.
Maybe just paint the plywood.
Dude, totally keep me in the loop with your flooring skills.
I'm in the process of buying a house, and am already seeing replacing the carpet with hardwood in the near future.
I may need a hand, or at least some advice.
