Cork Floor - plywood overlay?

Hello All,

I'm in the planning stages and have just settled on using cork as my insulation on ceiling, walls and under the wood flooring. My question is- If I glue down the cork to the base flooring, do I also need to put a layer of plywood down before I lay my wood floor down? Or is it advisable to put the flooring directly over the cork? Should I also use a thermal sheet layer and if so, should I place it under or over the cork underlayment (yes it's really a word - in the cork world). Thank you.

There is a lady who used cork liberally on her conversion. I know her blog called her Dr Lulu but I cant remember the name of her bus.
She's in the build threads though as that's where I found her.

Cork wasn't where I was going so I cant remember what she said about it but I know the info is here somewhere.
Sorry Im not more helpful! Im brand spanking new at this too!
