Your right, didn't take too long.
I purchased 1/2 inch plywood because there is already an existing subfloor (the houses original subfloor, consisting of what I think are 1x4 wood beams), and I don't want to go up TOO much in height (a little extra height is desirable because of the tub issue I mentioned above).
Hope to get it in this weekend. I know about the spacing (1/4 in the perimeter, 1/8 in the field) and staggering the joints. The floor space is approx 5x7 (5x9 bathroom minus the already installed tub), so I purchased one large piece of plywood and one small 2x4 piece. I think I could cut one long piece like 4x6 to cover the majority of the floor (trafficed area), and stagger two smaller 1x3 pieces to go in the "no traffic" areas under vanity and toilet.
Of course the measurements will be much more precise, but that's my general idea! Does this sound like the best way to do it?
