Layout Question (Trap-Crawler Door)


I am getting ready to put a floor in my workshop and I'm looking at either an engineered (floating) wood or vinyl wood plank product. I know I will be floating either product but I have a trap door for my crawlspace that I want to come out fairly seamless. I put a dual pivot concealed hinge on the door so it will be flush with all the hardware underneath.

I am wondering how to approach the layout. Also, I presume I should use adhesive on the flooring that goes over the door but I'm curious if there is something I am missing on how to lay this out.

I have attached an annotated drawing with the dimensions and what I've got.
