Sleeping beauty's new floor. See the pics!

Finally finished laying the tile. Used a 50# steel tube to make for sure these tiles stuck. Just stood on the roller and did a circus act of sorts, good thing I did'nt have an audience!!
I purchased these tiles at Lowes, 12 X 12 vinyl self stick, very user friendly if you get your starter tiles square and work in a pyramid pattern to maintain squareness.
Next step will be to figure out where to place the bathroom, since design centers around that. I have received a few plans and need to decide which one to go with.
Enjoy the pics!!

Made2Care,
As always you do a great job with the pictures. Details are easy to see.. is it the 'camera' or is it the 'photographer' You have done a great job so far with 'sleeping beauty'
take care
Helen

I would have liked to see a video of the circus act! What a great accomplishment Sleeping Beauty will be!

I used those squares on an older RV we had and also in a rental house and they ended up separating every time with heat and cold expansion and contraction. Just a note.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Now that's a total makeover. Pretty cool though because you can place the interior as you wish and run all the wiring for your incredible home theater system!

Sorry to hear that. These have beveled edges, so hopefully if this would occur, it won't be quite as noticeable. The manufacturer directions were pretty stringent in terms of acclimating the tiles to the room for at least 24hrs prior to install. Hopefully these newer tiles will retain their size.

Its definitely not my photographic skills. This is a really neat experience, especially sharing with everyone out there.
Thanks for the compliments.

Looks a lot like the tiles I used from Lowe's. This is the second winter with them and have yet to have any start to lift or peel.

Keep up the good work, can't wait to see what's next. I may get some ideas.

Looks great! You'll be done before I get started. What type of insulation did you decide on in the walls?
