Guys, I'm getting ready to put down hardwood in my house. Been looking over everything for awhile and I've come to the decision that some of the runs are going to have to start in the middle of rooms or where there are long runs. I am planning on using a loose spline for going groove to groove on the floors. Also going to screw and bung those pieces of floor. Should I be wary of this approach? Been reading around, and seems like a pretty common approach. Also, I'm going to space flooring around the edges of the room for movement, but where flooring hits base on end grain I was planning on putting the base down first since I shouldn't see any movement there. Any concerns with this approach? Thanks, Nick.
