I pulled out the hardwood in one of my hallways where the flooring was laid parallel with the decking (car-decking). It was like walking on an ocean, all wavy and un-even. I would have had to sand it over 1/4" to get it flat.
When I pulled all the wood, I decided to build a cold air return vent and put thresholds in all the doorways. I'll be building new casings and doors here later. (maybe sooner if my lovely wife brings up the subject of me having to sleep in the shop again...)
The wood is all installed and first sanding is done. I refinish wood floors as part of my business so I've got a big 8/10" belt sander (220v) and a 16 buffer/sander. Sure makes the job quick.
Well, I took a break from installing the hallway and my dog got too close to me while I had a marker in my hand.
For some reason she didn't appreciate my artwork.
