I need help determining the best starting point for my first board. Most videos on the internet have you starting at the far left wall (and have no stairs and rectangular). This might still be my best option (or answer).
However, I am laying down 3/4" hardwood flooring north/south. My floor joists are east/west. I am thinking about starting with a full board either at the top transition (kitchen) or the bottom transition (front door) or at the end of that protruding wall on the left. I guess if I measure (and do math) correctly I could start at the far left wall and plan to end with a full width board at a transition. Or maybe straight down dead center of the room? (chalk line of course).
Ultimately I would like to keep any boards that need cutting/rip to the far left. What do you guys think or recommend? Thanks.
