how do you do the floor without seeing seams?

Hi, a good builder should be able to join the panels with the joins looking........ er........seamless. There are a few ways to join the sheets including using "Biscuit Joins" or a joiner such as the one used in "Yellow Tongue Flooring". Both options would require a router along the edges of the sheets

The floor has held up well over time in this project. There are no wet areas such as bathrooms, kitchen or laundry adjacent or near this floor and I would not suggest this. The floor is sealed in the same way a solid timber floor would be sealed which protects the floor but is susceptible to damage over time and hence required maintenance.

I did a similar floor in our guest house. Rolled out a foam vapor barrier, used a ram set and installed them like a conventional wood floor, staggered. The boards were 12" wide, varying lengths. We applied several coats of poly gloss. It is a high traffic area and has held up beautifully. Cost next to nothing, too!
