    Default Re: subfloors

    Of course you can - it's your house.

    Should you do it? probably not.

    1. Sub floor plywood is not designed to be a finish floor.

    2. Sub floor plywood is probably full of fasteners (nails or something else), too many to deal with.

    3. If you want to sell your home, it will be a drawback.
