Shoe Molding Help
I just finished installing a new 3/4" solid hardwood floor and I am running into an issue with the shoe molding. I have baseboard heat which doesn't allow me to use a traditional two piece baseboard and shoe molding. As you can see in the picture, the wall behind the baseboard back panel is plaster and the gap is too far to nail the shoe molding to the subfloor. (The front panel of the heater is removed for clarity.) Also, there is a lip on the bottom of the back panel that is curved out and upward and prevents me from attaching the molding to the panel itself (not even sure if this would work).
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can attach the molding and still allow for movement of the floor? I am completely at a loss for ideas.
