Hello all. I am planning to install 3/4" x 7 1/8" yellow pine plank flooring in two second floor bedrooms. The subfloor is 1" pine planks covered with plywood. Everything I've read says to install the flooring perpendicular to the joists. But if I do this, the planks will not be running along the longest walls. Would it be a big mistake to run the planks parallel to the joists?
