    Vinyl. They told me the heat would radiate through it better. Plus it was cheaper ;), and perhaps a bit more durable. (??)

    Yep. We just did our kitchen, living room and entry way with it, and it was a breeze to install and looks great.

    Update... The floor is all done. The heating system is all done. My trim and paint has been delivered. We're getting down to the final lap.

    While you're in the upgrade mindset, will you be building any new storage/quick access solutions for stuff? I know when I redid my shop, I added a speed shelf of sorts for all of my setup, fretwork tools, and soldering station. It really made things that much more enjoyable for me in the shop.

    I'm going to wait until my son moves back from Spain and we can figure out all that together. He'll be working in there full time. For me it's still just a hobby.

    So I'll be working over there in the corner... trying to stay out of the way. ;)

    Whenever I log on in the mornings, this is the first thread I check :).

    Making some great progress, John!

    I do too! I am impressed with the progress and how methodical you've been! Now I'm getting the itch to do the same, but I will have to build from the ground up!

    Thank you for sharing!

    Hey! Not to derail, but good morning from another Okie! I'm just up the road from you in Stillwater.

    Thanks. It has come along faster than I expected. I think it will be completed about 3 or 4 weeks sooner than I had initially planned.

    I hate to even say this, but I've been lucky with the current situation and have had a lot of help from folks who haven't been working otherwise. Plus I have been working so even though it has cost me more, it's been a win-win for all of us involved.
