Well, DH hoped that the floor would install quickly and easily. No such luck. He spent the morning getting the underlayment put down.
Then he started installing it.
The further along he got, the more frustrated he got with the cheap flooring. After he had run through his repertoire of handy swear words several times, we stopped and discussed continuing or not. We ended up taking the remaining boxes of flooring back to Lowe's and going with cheap vinyl flooring instead.
And DH is starting over. Photos to follow. We're "hoping" it goes well.
