Hey Brian-
Yes, a floor nailer nails each board via it's edge so the nails are hidden. But you can't get them under the toe kick of the cabinets, where I'd be working.

I just got off the phone with Joyce and told her that everything I was planning on doing has somewhat been shot down with better advice from those that know much more than I.

She thinks that I should just let go of the pantry area for now, and just concentrate on sanding and putting poly on the main kitchens' floor. We can look at just replacing all that flooring with new hardwood or even tile sometime after.

I have to admit, it takes the pressure off having to get this figured out today... but if we put mew maple in there next week I'd wonder about color matching and if we do tile I'd wonder how that would look in terms of busyness of differing materials.

I hate the indecision. We're running into two other issues from the work our contractors did and I'm just finding myself getting overwhelmed and really pissed off about it all!

Update:
We're still in a holding pattern with a contractor and the weather is not supposed to be great, so we're skipping the whole "Joyce and Buddy leave so Mark can sand and poly the floors this weekend" thing.

Plus, it'll just give us more time to decide what we want to do with that pantry floor.

Thank you for your help, everyone. Your suggestions weren't a waste; we'll take them all into account for next weekend!

If you are getting cranky then, Once again...
Step 1, Hire Bob.
Step 2, Make no decisions, give no instruction.
Step 3, You, Joyce and Buddy go on a little mini vacation.
Step 4, Return, pay Bob and enjoy.

That is what I would do at this point. I have learned that I love woodworking but I despise home renovation. They do not have to the same thing.


With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.

It is better to take your time and do it the best you can. It is after all, your own home so there is no rush.
