Well got it all up. I found the "easiest" way was to use a razor knife and cut about a 12 inch wide stripe the length of the floor, then take a 8 inch drywall blade and tap it under the linoleum. Then keep driving that bitch down the length. For the areas where the linoleum ripped and was still glued down, a heat gun with a painter's tool worked well.

Laid down some killz oil based to prime the floor and expose areas where I gouged the subfloor. I'll need to fill those before laying down groutable LVT for the flooring.

Sick as a dog but shits gotta get done. Started laying luxury floating vinyl tile in the kitchen tonight. Really like the stuff, 100% waterproof, locks really tight, 30 year residential, 5 year commercial warranty. Got it at menards at $1.83 SQ Ft. You can't lay a quality sheet laminate or tile that cheap and it a shitton easier.

How’s that too work with Joe?
Really easy. Score the face side with a razor knife and snap off the discard piece. For multiple cuts a pair of tin snips then score the longest edge and snap it. The tiles are very sturdy yet flexible and snap together very securely. Best of all since its a vinyl and rubber product it doesn't have that floating feeling or sound like laminate flooring does. To be honest I wouldn't mind it in other living areas as they have wood flooring looking ones.

Nice job!! I've been looking at that stuff for the kitchen and bathrooms downstairs. Haven't heard a whole lot about it til recently.
I've done tile, cheap and expensive engineered wood, and nail down tongue and groove. This is by far my favorite so far. I looked at a lot of flooring at home depot, lowes, and online. From stick and glue down tiles , sheet laminate, and their vinyl plank tile that's like $3.80 a sq ft. This stuff is by far my favorite for warranty, quality, look and price at $1.89 a sq ft. There's nothing chincy about it compared to the ones double its price. Do yourself a favor and head to a Menards and check it out before looking at other stores. Let it be the yardstick you measure the others by.

Looks really good Joe, how long it take you
Sick as a dog and dealing with kids and work. All told probably 5 hours of continuous effort, it's a kitchen that required a lot of cuts around cabinets and such. Labor wise it's way better than laying tile though.

@Jamie. Question buddy. We have solid wood cabinets original to the house. They're pine which is quite dated so sanding and restaining isn't on the agenda. Instead i'd like to paint them a neutral off white. Most if the purpose built cabinet paints I've seen are enamel but I've been told by a guy who paints that oil based is better if you can stand the initial smell. What's your opinion? Enamel, Oil, Acrylic?

My plan is to remove all doors and hardware, degrease, sand lightly with 100 grit, add some wood accents to the door to give them detail, prime, then paint 2 coats.

Any tips?

I know I’m not Jamie but we (Christine) has painted cabinets. Kilz them and use a finish you can wash. Those would be the tips I would recommend. Tips I’ve learned from listening to her bitch about both of those things for years.
