Certainly appreciate the versatility of plank floor. Found a vinyl plank or tile flooring to be soft and durable in a rental unit that was installed 7 years ago. I will only install a sheet vinyl if there are no seams. Haven't had the pleasure of working one. Like you, I use a rosen paper template where the paper is shy of the perimeter. I will butt a framing square against the edges and use a marker to scribe onto the paper. Takes a lot of room but I'm no pro.For those looking at flooring options I would think about one piece of sheet vinyl. I will never go back to laminate planks again. With one piece you don’t have the clicking or bumps that laminate always seems to get over time. This is a little harder to work with since it’s so large and very heavy also when you make a wrong cut it’s a pretty big deal. I would also not install without quarter round since it’s very hard to get perfect on the edges ( for me that is).
The above sheet is not glued down. It just lays. there. It’s so heavy it feels good on the feet and doesn’t bubble up.
Don’t know about wear since I have only had it in another place for a year. That is TBD.
Don’t know how the pros install but I took rosin paper and made a template of the floor then added an extra inch to all the sides and laid it down and trimmed in place.
I have used a perimeter spread with the adhesive. 6" v notch.
