With the underlayment down I turned to putting down the vinyl titles and all that bending is making for a backache. The titles are 12 inch squares of the “peel and stick” kind. You layout a grid on the floor using a chalk line and try your best to keep everything lined up. On the edges, I have to cut the titles to fit. This sounded easy, but it’s fiddly work. The cutting is done with a straight edge and a utility knife. The vinyl is tough stuff and dulls the blades quickly. I’ve been changing blades about every five titles.
I expect to be done with title installation tomorrow and then I’ll install the baseboards. Once that is done, I can start moving equipment in. Hopefully I’ll be at the scroll saw cutting things in a week or so.
That’s it for this week – if you need me, I’m looking for my heating pad.
