Studio Build 12

Floor is in!

It's a Pergo laminated floor that floats on the felt underlayment.  I had initially bought this flooring for some upstairs bedrooms, but decided I didn't like the feel of it.  Now, it's just me really, this stuff is great.  We have it in our living room and it has taken all of the abuse that dogs, guests, construction.. you name it has thrown at it.

It looks great, is easy to install and really works well.  So I'm going to get over my touchy feely complaints about it and learn to love it.  Next is trim work and replacing the outlets with some fresh ones.  Something about clean outlets and new covers, plus there's a gasket that goes behind the plate to further seal the outlet from the outside intrusion of noise... mass, air, mass air...

Oh, what's cool is when the door closes now, it has that "shhoooooommmph" sound.  Like a studio door.  :P


  1. WOO WHOO!! Lookin good, Monk!

  2. Thanks! Laying the floor is a milestone, I can see a light at the end of the tunnel and I'm pretty sure it's not a train.
