i don't get this either, a few rows i can understand but this is a serious amount of work. i'd find it annoying that as things get pushed together your material won't be where you thought it was going to be. obviously it works though!

Installers, different crew, did the same thing on the last gym floor.

It was about 10,000 sq feet.

Looks good Griz.

I've never laid a floor that big, but on the big, open jobs I've worked, I find that having one guy rack in front of me (placer) & my nailer, speeds the job up considerably.

Small jobs, I place & my wife nails, no racking.

I don't rack first either. Invariably I end up coming across a few boards in the racked area that are defective, and then I have to go cut a matching board, slowing it back down. I can't nail constantly for more than a couple hours either.
