Re: Floor leveling
The only "leveling" that needs to be done for flooring is so that there are no dips or valleys, you do not need an accurately level plain. Basically, you're going to fill "holes" with the leveling compound, and no damming would be necessary, you simply feather the edges of the fill into the area of no fill.
Where to stop the hardwood, you do this at or under a door, I usually use the door stop (trim strip in center line of jamb that door closes against ) as the start/stop point. If you have open doorways, flooring is usually stopped flush with the wall/doorway area rather than the center line.
