Forum Title: Wide Plank Hickory (winter acclimation trick??)
I have 500 sqft of 3/4 by 4 hand scrapped hickory. We heat our house with a wood stove and don't run the AC in the summer. If I install right now (late winter), I'm going to have some serious issues come June/July.... What I want to do is mimic the summer humidity levels by running a 2000 sqfl pedestal humidifier for 10 days. In the same room where the wood is currently sitting. Then install a washer row every 3 rows to allow for any additional expansion. Any thoughts on this?

Yes, if your running the humidifier now that essentially is mimicking the summer so no washers.
