I tried doing this last night but erased it twice oh well try it again.
Wednesday morning and it is ensolite on ceiling day. Deb went off to work and it was going to take 4 hands to get this stuck on the ceiling. I set up for the job got 2 sheets of plywood and made a platform 4 ft x 16 ft and a fold up table to assemble a stand on. The stand is to put ensolite roll on I used jack stands and clamped to table tightly. I then got out all the tools I tought it would take to do the ensolite
The ensolite roll weighs 85 lbs and I managed to get it on stand. then did final wipe down in Trillium
to remove dust stuck on the ceiling walls etc. I then taped off the edges of the upper cabinet backing with masking tape and stuck a 3 wire line to roof vent hole. That stuff being done I had only to clear a path from table to back doors wide enough so that when we carry ensolite neither of us has to dodge anything.
Deb got home at 3:30 and we got right into it. The next bit is how we got it up onceiling
- resnapped a center line on cieling and a 8 inch offset line
the area between lines was to be where glue was to be put I also marked a starting point on the center line for the attachment of the ensolite, 24 inches from top of back door. We then measured from top of back door across ceiling all the way to top of front desk and added 12 inches this measurement 16 ft 6 in. also measured where roof vent was located from the 24 inch mark. All these measurement were transfered to the back of the ensolite.
-The glue was sprayed on the ceiling from the 26 inch mark to ceiling vent hole, only between the lines and then we quickly folded up the ensolite on the table so it could be handled easily then sprayed the glue in between the lines and marks ( added two inches to starting mark and also to vent hole so I had could trim)
-the next step get it up and started on ceiling without wrinkling of sticking it prematurely -what a tea managed to start the cross hair onto the center line an work it up to the vent hole then worked from center line out to offset line and rolled it onto ceiling with fluffy paint
roller. Then sprayed another section on the other side of center about 8 inches and stuck that up then Deb unfolded a bit and we did the front side of the roof vent from center line to 8 inches each side and to top of curve above front window opening. It was then break time as it was getting gassy and masks were irritating Elapsed time since deb got home 1 1/2 hours picture is at break
-after 15 minutes it was just a matter of doing a bit more glue, letting it sit 5 minutes and rolling it onto ceiling,then down and over to upper cabinet mounting strips. Had to make a few relief cuts along the way. the picture is of the fridge
cabinet relief cuts and ensolite all stuck up except under front window as we decided to cut it off at top of windows
and due front different than first planned.
-This is where we left it for the evening elapsed time 3 1/2 hours, It went really well no mishaps, still married and got to watch Survivor Great day, Trim off excess today and then start side walls
