I want to lay 3" X 3/4" T&G cherry in a room 12' X 24' . The joists
run parallel to the 24' walls. There is a fir T&G subfloor that runs
perpendicular to the joists. The cherry planks would run parallel to
the joists; perp to the subfloor planks.
When running hardwood parallel to the joists, Don Bollinger recommends
an underlayment of 1-1/8" plywood underlayment. With the finished
floor, that would mean a 1-7/8" bump at the doorways to the other
He doesn't mention if that underlayment includes the subfloor width or
not. What's your opinion?
Thanks very much for any advice, tips, references or comments
I think he means that you need a half inch more than a spec houes install
of three quarters, Its really a quetion of do you want to do it parralel
its technically Incorrect, ie: you should run Across the Joist

Forgot to say how thick your fir T&G subfloor that runs perpendicular to
the joists, is.. Who is Don Bollinger? Mfg'er?
Anyway a 'total' of an 1-1/8" of subfloor (incl. underlayment) is more
than enough. Given the joists aren't overspaced..
