I forgot to mention that you can use the waxed paper between the strips to keep everything from sticking as you fit the pieces. When you are ready to lay a peice you have cut, lay the wax paper right into the lip, line up the peices then slowly pull out the wax paper.
I hand trimmed all the curves in the corners. Plan out your cuts to facilitate your corners. 1 box did the main floor of our 4500 with a strip left over. Got the underlay from Home Depot along with the Allure. I've laid tiles in entire rooms much quicker than the Trillium, they use a lot less intricate cuts. Sort of like painting
a closet, it takes forever, or so it seems.
