There's a few manufacturers that have gluing down large lumber to concrete down pat. Carlisle is one of them. There's a lot that goes into it, especially the quality of the lumber and milling.[/align] I took the Carlisle certified master craftsman program exam. Lots to know about wood.

Also on the subfloor over concrete, shooting thousands of holes through any vapor retarder to fasten down plywood just is not necessary and in my humble opinion a reciepe for disaster. You can do a floating plywood subfloor and nail to that. Depending on the moisture tests and evaluation of the substrate and wether or not there is plastic under the slab and proper drainage I put down a trowel on or roll on vapor retarder under the wood, then 6 mil over top the vapor retarder. Then you will want 15lb felt on top the plywood. Some guys also put the felt under the plywood as well.
