Tour de Floor

I spent the better part of today on my hands and knees working on the floor. I started off by unrolling, cuttting and taping the seams of the QuietWalk underlayment, which evens out the floor, provides a moisture barrier, and deadens sound. It comes in a 3′ x 33′ roll, just enough for the first floor minus the bathroom. It looks like Smurf carpet:

Next came the fun part – the cork floor tiles. The first row was easy enough, but because the sections interlock on both dimensions and I had to deal with the kitchen counter supports, it became a tricky puzzle. I worked patiently and with precision in mind and managed to get two (of five) boxes laid today. Here’s what it looked like by mid-afternoon:
