One of the best things we've done during renovations to our barn house was ripping up all the nasty, stained, cat hair covered, carpet and replacing it with wood flooring.
The thing was though, our budget was low. REALLY low. I've always loved using plywood for furniture & creative projects, so I did some digging around the internet for plywood flooring ideas.
I found pictures of a couple of modern installations and also a rustic one in a store from picklee.com. We went with the more rustic flooring (with a big 'ol modern twist) and they turned out awesome!
This is part 3 of a 5 part video series I made showing you how to layout and install your plywood plank flooring.
I find that it's best to find a long "run" in your space (the space between rooms connected by a hallway works great) to start your layout & install. Snap a chalk line measured off the wall 2 boards in and work from there. Leave the planks that will go against the wall until last so you can custom fit them.
Also, if you make wide planks like I did (over 5-6" wide... mine were 8"), you'll want to glue and nail them down, because they may move a bit as the seasons change. You'll want to leave a small gap between them to help give them a little room if they do move a little on you.
Hope this video helps you out if you're thinking of doing something similar.
