    Any tips for us before we lay this linoleum down?

    Easy way to go up the walls?
    Easy way to do corners?
    I would like to utilize the entire 6x9 piece.

    Pictures would be great too, thanks~!

    Use a hair dryer to make it more pliable. Glue down the floor and tuck or notch the corners.

    I just finished mine. I have a 4x8 floor, and went about 5 inches up the sides. I figured its just a chicken coop and they'll be pooping on it soon, so I troweled out the glue and installed it properly, but also stapled in the corners and up the walls about every 6 inches to keep it secured. Its not a fancy kitchen linoleum floor just a chicken coop.

    I sat the walls onto the floor and made the sill out of AWW. Since you sound like your past that point, I would suggest a screw with the biggest fender washer you can find in each corner to keep the flooring from trying to lift
