Any suggestions on how to complete this subflooring?


Hey All,

We are converting half an old bedroom to a master bath and now down to the subflooring. right now it is split between original 3/4 T&G plank which I chose to keep in place, and eventually 3/4 T&G plywood. I have the biggest piece of 4x8 glued and screwed down and now looking to fill in the blanks so to speak. I would like to put down as whole a piece as possible but need to leave enough room to lock the pieces together. It would be easy enough to plan for a gap along the wall to allow me to do so and fill it in with a strip later... the thing that worries me is leaving a same-size gap in front of the closet. Probably not a huge deal but just not as clean as I'd like.

I have done some blocking already and will likely block w/ a double 2x8 with joist hangers in front of the toilet (seems overkill to do both sides so close to a wall, and a block wall at that). The capped waste pipe is not glued so I can remove to put the floor in. I can do more if needed.

The open few feet at the bottom of the pic will have a tub over it so I'm just going to slap some 3/4 down to cover. The tub itself will cover up to the little shelf in back.

Open to any ideas, and thanks very much for any advice!

Little late now, but I would have started the floor in the other direction so I could just dropped it in place straight down.
That whole drain pipes going to be in the way now with it sticking up like that.

Yeah I actually debated doing that but then I'd have a gap on the other edge and didn't have as much opportunity for blocking underneath the wall on the other side. We will be stepping on that side but I expect we won't be stepping behind the toilet much.

Speaking of which, you might have missed the note but the pipe is not glued in. I can pull it off any time.
