12” wide real oak? how much money do you have??? A board that wide will want to move, especially in CT so T&G would be a must. And in what we call “new growth” lumber, I doubt you’ll ever keep it flat.

So move to engineered (essentially veneer over plywood) or high quality laminates (essentially a “photo finish” over MDF). In our construction we decided on the latter…we have very sandy soil and we have dogs and we have radiant under floor radiant heat. All of those were part of our decision.

Maybe some people don’t like Lumber Liquidators but I am happy with their selection, quality and pricing. Their web-site is good also in helping in your choice.
