Those were 8.5/10 difficulty.

Dropping three floor means the door jamb no longer reached three ground making it at least 3x the difficulty.

I managed to figure out a way to mate with the jamb by cutting more off the bottom so I could go straight under the stop, problem being then that the jamb was twisted like 5
Nice work Andrew.

Agreed.
I'm loathing my current kitchen floor. PO did not know how to install T&G flooring and didn't glue an inch of it together. So not only does the floor float but each piece shifts as you walk on it. Can't wait to rip that one up.

I made that mistake as well. When we remodeled our kitchen a couple years ago, we deleted an island and made a peninsula instead. I had a couple boxes of the original hardwood T&G flooring out in the garage, and I patched it up, if I don't say so myself, pretty darn good looking. However, I neglected to glue it down and that patch creaks terribly. I am going to have to pull it up and redo it at some point.

Don't edge glue it unless you want to float it. We never edge glue t&G unless it's a floating floor. We aren't really installing floating floors any more. We're doing a lot of engineered hardwood for radiant heated floors. That's all glue down, but still no edge gluing. On solid floor for sure, no edge gluing. The boards have to be able to move with conditions. If you edge glue them and they shrink you could get cracks in your planks instead of gaps at the joints. Especially if the floor is nailed down. We're finding engineered flooring to be the most stable floor available. It also allows for wider planks to be had for less money. Be prepared though, any wood products prices are through the roof right now and our flooring subs are being told by their vendors that availability is very unpredictable for at least the next six months, possibly longer.

T&G only supposed to be nailed, but if you have movement something define l definitely wrong. I used the best underlayment I could get for nailed floor. If you use foam underlay on T&G hw it'll squeak like hell.

You can glue OR nail not both. If you glue you have to turn the whole floor into a floating floor. If you glue and nail you risk binding and buckling. I recently had to fix a floor that was lifting up in the middle due to it being glued when it wasn't meant to be.

Just a matter of time. Honestly though, I thought you resisted the urge pretty well this time bcredliner.

The floor is supposed to be a floating floor. I know it is a thin laminate. Thin meaning between 5/16 and 3/8. All the floating floors I've installed either had a locking design that didn't need glue or they had to be glued at the interlock points. What I will call T&G. Maybe T&G technically only refers to the standard T&G hardwood floors that are NOT laminate but are hardwood flooring strips 3/4 inch thick?

If it is supposed to be floating, then the planks should definitely be edge glued.

Sorry BC
