Started laying some flooring down, but it’s late and I’m tired. Will do some more tomorrow. Looking good though! My wife started painting the unfinished cabinets as well. During the week we can really only work on this stuff once the kiddos go to bed.

Alright, wrapped up my office and working towards the next room. Will probably snake into the bathroom once I get to the hallway. Should be able to get that done tomorrow night? Who knows. It’s progress though.

Made my way into the main area. Made good progress for a few hours of work. Lots of cuts from the threshold and the bottom of the stairs. Hopefully I’ll be able to wrap up this room this weekend.

Alright, that’s a wrap for the weekend of flooring. Did most of the main room. Gotta pause cause I gotta some shit with the oscillating tool and the kids are sleeping. Regardless, it’s a good stopping point!

I need to paint my walls- they're currently grey-blue instead of grey or even chalkboard blue...

@lucifargundam I’m the picture of the room with the turquoise accent wall, it makes the grey a very bluish color. Funny how grey looks blue sometimes.

Could it be that the grey is so close to being white, that the blue reflects a little?

@Clifford looks good.i saw black backing on previous pic. Is that vinyl? Was no foil or vapour underlay required?


Yup, it’s vinyl. Multiple layers of stuff, total of 7mm. The bottom layer is attached underlayment which functions as vapor barrier and the bulk of the core is a dense foam that makes walking on it really quiet. The surface of it is really hard and scratch resistant as well. Suitable for wet locations as well. Really good stuff!

@Clifford, you seem to be spending a lot of time on your knees lately 😫

When I was younger, I remember always thinking "kneepads are for older people".

Boy, do you realize how much pain you'll be on your bare knees, sliding around on rough concrete for 6+ hours?!

I really wish I could smack my past self into being smarter.


lol, right! As I age, I find more and more of these totes of things👴

Too many times....
"I don't need math- I'll just make videogames!"
"I don't need to watch what I eat- I burn it all anyway!"
"Why save money now? I'll be rich after college!"
"I'll visit that elderly family member next year, they're not going anywhere!"

I need to install a drop-down ladder for the ceiling access in my office.
