We are installing Teak flooring in an old house. The room is not square. The issue is that it is one of those rooms that has two sets of two steps up into a raised area. There is bullnose molding at the edges of the stairs and in between the stairs. The tongue of the flooring needs to sit in the bullnose molding and be square to it. If that happens, then it is visually crooked (and looks bad) with the wall and the baseboard on that wall.

Any tips?

By The Way, it is a glue down method.

I'd like to try to help, but this is not clear. If the floor you are installing hardwood in has 2 steps up to another floor, and the stairnose on those are not straight, seems like you would just have to revise\rebuild the steps to square. the steps wouldnt affect the floor you are installing. it really sounds more like the steps are the problem, not the walls in the room.
