    Great room! Love the “permanent” ironing board as I have a matching one in my bedroom. I just don’t see any sense in taking it down and putting it back up everyday for sewing or ironing quilt squares. My husband is thinking about getting one that folds down from the wall, so I can fold it back up when I am finished. Just haven’t figured out where to put the iron yet!

    Did you use anything as a underlayment for your plywood floor? I want to do this but I can’t decide if it needs a vapor/cushion barrier.

      Hi there! We nailed the plywood to the subfloor. This was almost 8 years ago and we hadn’t heard much about vapor/cushion barriers. We don’t have a moisture problem,though, and haven’t had any issues with it. It doesn’t seem any more noisy than other un-carpeted floors we have. Hope that helps!

    I would suggest using rosin paper (its cheap) underneath the plywood flooring. Also, you will want to cut much thinner than the 2 ft widths shown here to prevent gapping and and dipping of boards. 2ft is too wide — Also be sure with plank flooring that you are perpendicular to the floor joists so the floor won’t sag.

      Hi, James – we did apply the plywood perpendicular to the floor joists. Our floor is now almost 8 years old and there is no gaping or dipping at 2 ft. wide, though.
