Tore down a wall; how to deal with the gap in the hardwood floor?


Posted by Johnny P on August 8th, 2001 05:34 PM

As you might guess from the subject header, I just tore down a wall in my house, and I want to keep the hardwood floors. Of course, there's about a 6-inch gap running right down the middle of the floor now (gap runs perpendicular to floorboards). The only thing I can figure to do is to pull up the floorboards that were closest to the old wall on both sides and re-lay that whole patch.

I'm resigned to doing it that way, but I wonder if there's a less knuckle-busting method. I'm planning on buying one batch of replacement floorboards and resanding/refinishing the whole shebang too.

Please, somebody tell me that there's an easier way that doesn't involve carpet.
