Question about shoe molding. I'm going to install prefinished hardwood throughout my house in December and I'm planning on removing all of the old 2 1/4" base before the floor goes down. The flooring is supposed to be installed so it is 3/4" away from the wall. My question is, is it 3/4" away from the framing/wood or 3/4" away from the drywall?? I would like to not have shoe molding. Is this possible? Or am I about to make a mistake?
