    Yeah, I got a tip. If you glue it in a kitchen or bathroom, make sure to keep going back and wiping up the excess glue before the dog lays on it!

    What kind of info you needing? I put it in all the house except the bedrooms. Did the wood in the family room, hall, closets, etc.

    I did the Tile in the kitchen and dining area:

    The fireplace was a real $%@#$ .. But just take your time and it will go smooth. Be sure to leave your spacing around the edges..

    I used a Jig Saw and a Table Saw.. now I have a Slider Miter Saw (figures) and would be mucho easier to do imho. For curved areas, get a good sander and cut close to what you need, then shape and fit with sander...

    fatkat - I came out of it just fine. The dog, well that was another matter . . . I put a "floating" laminate floor in my kitchen. To protect it from water, I had to glue all the edges together. As I worked my way across the room, additional pressure kept being applied to the sections already installed. This caused glue to be squeezed out of the seams. I kept wiping the seams, but at some point I stopped going back all the way to the starting sections. Bad mistake. The dog had a glue stripe on her side for about a year.
