Welcome, Dan. :)

You'll need to remove that top layer of flooring, which in your photo appears to be what would usually be called strip wood flooring rather than "planks" as you suggest.

Welcome, David. :)

If I understand your drawing, it's not the level top of that wall that's the problem, but the fact that it's not plumb. Would that be correct?
