I gave you a glimpse of Jason building a wall a couple of weeks ago. Then last weekend a snapshot of bamboo flooring installation. And, of course, there was the big poster print we ordered of Great Grandpa Carl. We’ve had a little secret remodeling project going on. Jason (and I) turned his roughly 13’x22′ two closet home studio into a two room studio. The main space now has one closet (he took out the second one) and is his main work area, about 13’x11′. The other space is for tracking and storage and it’s not finished yet. It will probably be about 13’x10 when it’s done. Here are a few pictures I took of the almost finished main studio space:
I didn’t take many pictures of the floors because Jason hasn’t had a chance to do the quarter rounds yet but we’re really happy with how the solid bamboo floors turned out. They were on sale at HD for $1.99/sq ft! We left the black VCT tiles in the other room since it’s more of a work room. We haven’t figured out what to call each room yet but we’ve been calling the small room “the loud room.” I hope the main area can stay this neat and organized. I love to leave the door open so it extends our main living area and feels like a lounge.
By the way, I’m pretty sure this is the 4th kind of flooring we’ve had in this room since we moved in 3.5 years ago. Maybe later this week I’ll scrounge up some before pictures from the various states. The first flooring—carpeting—probably didn’t even last long enough for any photographs.
