From the album: Tig's Pierce ProgressThis back corner was challenging - I needed arms about 2 feet longer with a few more joints in them so that I could bend them every which way to get in the furthest corner where the stairs will come up. If only this website had existed 20 years ago where I would have discovered how much smarter it is to create these templates BEFORE you glue the majority of the house together instead of AFTER!
From the album: Tig's Pierce ProgressI should be able to lift these paper borders out and place them onto a sheet of poster board to trace around making a full floor template. My intention is to make my own hardwood floor on the poster board out of strips of wood laminate, staining and varnishing to my liking. Then I can lay the flooring down and glue if needed. I plan to wire for lights, so the flooring will cover wires running around for the floor below. I'm not sure if I want to glue the floor down permanently or not yet. I may just leave it laying there to make wiring issues easier to solve. It depends on how well it lays down.
From the album: Tig's Pierce ProgressI figure what works in RL should work in miniature so I used the same method that I used for creating the template for my kitchen floor when I cut and installed new flooring myself a few years back. I laid strips of paper around the borders, taping and folding as I went. A few cross pieces here and there keep everything square (or in the case of my 100 year old house - NOT square!) when I take it out to lay on my choosen flooring.
