That's what I would have done, too, but I ain't so good with toe nailing. I can never seem to get it to all work out well. Either I split the wood, or end up with a bit of a gap between the blocking and the subfloor...

Important thing (to me) is that I'm done, and it worked out well.

I met with the flooring guys this morning, and they were thrilled with all of the prep I did. (fastening the floors, sanding all the ridges / bumps, and the blocking) I think they were shocked, actually. At one point the lead guy said "This is perfect." Then after a pause, "More than perfect."

Hopefully that translates into a perfect finished floor.
