when laying a new wood floor how much space should be left around walls for expansion. i have been reading 3/4" that seems excesive.

Sounds excessive to me too!

Your baseboard might not even be 3/4" How would it overlap?

I would not butt it to the wall, but would probably hold back "about" 3/8"

Does that seem more reasonable to you?
