Great videos, I think these are some of the best I've seen. I'm very new to building and one thing I've been reading (on the flawless internet) is that when you put the flooring down you should leave a 1/8" between the sheeting to allow for expanding of the wood. It doesn't look like you did that so I'm wondering if it's because of the material you used or is leaving a space a gray area where every builder has his own opinion? Thanks!
Flooring does not typically expand enough to need extra spacing because the temperature differential is not as great as for roof sheeting. On a smaller floor there are no sheets between other sheets so if the floor does expand there is room for it to move around the edges. You can check with the manufacturer of the Sub-flooring you are using to see if they recommend it. I hope this helps.
