cottage floor

I am remodeling a cottage from 1938. The floor is tounge and groove pine about 5 1/2" wide. I could see where it may look good refinished but at this point we are thinking floating laminate.

Do I need to add another layer to the sublfoor?
I am a little concerned that the floor is not 100% flat and we would be doing the entire first floor.

Do I need to stick with a floor that would be nailed down?

I have some time before I am ready to install but I want make sure I frame the stairs correctly.

Eeew. Laminate? Sorry, I am not a fan. If you have classic floors, now, why put a layer of MDF with a picture of wood on it? I would give the refinishing a chance first. IMO you will like it better than clacky laminate.

The floors we have are face nailed. I am not a big fan of how that looks. We may try to clean up a section to see how it looks but the floor is rough in spots.

Good idea. After all it is a cottage. It would, IMO add character to keep it original if possible. Post some pix if you like.
