Click Lock Laminated Flooring

Unfortunately, the floors in this 1930 home only had one layer, unsuitable for final flooring. After much work, I really like how it turned out! I'm afraid I wasn't heavy enough to pound each piece sideways properly, but...
Heavy plastic under it. The laminate has a insulating feature on it's under side.
The original floor, no under layer, and plywood on top. Discovered old termite damage. Also, the joists are not spaced equally, so the nails in the plywood had to be every 5" or 6".

    that looks like my kitchen floor in my 1920s house i was wondering how laminate flooring would work on my floor..yours look great, and if yours is like mine this will probably keep the cold air from coming up through the thin floor boards

    The click lock flooring has some insulation under it, and it's required to have a moisture barrier like sheet plastic. However, mine has only one layer of the old floor, no sub floor, and no insulation under the house at all. That little bit of insulation didn't amount to much when the temperatures dropped! Adding insulation under the floor is definitely on my project list!
