Green Glue between the layers of drywall. Green Glue is a product that helps with sound dampening so that the acoustic properties in the room will be better. We also added an additional layer of sub-floor in both my studio and the great room with Green Glue between the layers. In both cases the hardwood flooring went in on top of the new subfloor. We ended up putting Brazilian Koa (also known as Tiger wood) in both of those rooms.
The second photo is of Wayne painting, we have also done a lot of painting since we closed of the house but still have plenty to do. The great room is where he is painting in the photo and the walls are now Honorable Blue and Hyper Blue( If you want to see these colors you will have to open the color visualizer and then explore colors). Once more we are not going for subtle colors anywhere but so far we both love how things look with all of the color. The third photo is a part of my studio as it was a couple of weeks ago. The studio keeps changing and will continue to as things come in and out of it and I try to get it organized. I still need a trip to Ikea to buy some furniture for it so I can really start getting it organized but we need to rent a cargo van for the trip since neither car is big enough for all of things I want/need.
Less than a week after the movers we had visitors for a few days of spring break. Ryan, Renee and Trevor came down. We had managed to get the guest beds usable and although their rooms were decorated with boxes still they had a good time and it gave us a couple of days to just chill a bit.
This photo shows the great room painted but not finished. We still need to buy some additional trim and paint it. Along with the 2 colors of blue there will be some white trim and some red trim. Although with red white and blue you would think it might look patriotic but so far it doesn't. The Hyper blue helps since it is sort of a cyan blue that doesn't look like a patriotic blue. The television in the great room was acting up before we moved and is pretty much nonfunctional at this point and parts have been ordered for it. When we get it working the couch will go into the great room and we will see about getting that room more finished.
The last photo I am going to leave you with is the fireplace in the great room. I painted it red and added some copper to it (it looks more gold in the photo than copper).
