For the record, laying lineoleum (felt backed vinyl) sheeting just sucks.

We got the cutting done OK, and the sheets fit nicely without hideous gaps and the like. But the glueing – in a small room (5×8 bathroom – two of them). OMFG.

We learned a lesson today. Pay someone who knows that shit to do it.

One thought on “Lineoleum

  1. LOL! Been there, done that. I redid the entire bathroom once when Erik was at Comdex, including the floor. I can’t agree more about hiring a professional.
    Next time try laying ceramic tile or laminate- much more forgiving that lino or vinyl.
    BTW- I’m hiring a fencing contractor to fence in our yard…not going to attempt that on my own!
