Any thoughts on any of this are greatly appreciated.
Opinions vary on this. Foam board has a decent compression strength ... around 25 psi for the easily available types.
Personally, I'd want at least 1/2" of ply on top, under the laminate flooring.
Others feel the laminate on the foam is good enough.
