We're just getting started in the owner-builder process so we're still greenhorns but learning a LOT!!!  This book has been very enlightening and inspiring.

April 24th, 2008. The subflooring installation was pretty much straightforward. I used Advantech 3/4" flooring. According to tile guys on John Bridge tile forums, Advantech is the best there is. It's priced between OSB and plywood and better and stiffer than either. It also will withstand normal weathering for up to six months without edge swelling.

We did have one problem. On the bedroom wing we started in the bathroom corner with a full sheet. The next sheet was short because it came to the shower. Beyond the shower we should have used a half sheet and that's what I had on my layout sketch. But we laid down a full sheet. Subsequently, the next row of sheets ended up with ends lining up with the first row. We had to use some 32" inch long pieces in order to assure staggered joints. Oh well, I guess it's a lot to expect that everything works out according to plan.

Lesson learned:

Pay attention to the plans!

Subflooring partially completed.
We covered the floor with tar paper to help keep it clean.
Sunlight art. The stripes of sunlight on the crawlspace floor caught my attention and I thought they looked a little bit 'artsy' so I took this shot!
