Drum studio build #2, Fun with floors

1 Apr

So, everythings’ s been measured and ordered. Wickes.co.uk, studiospares.com and soundservice.co.uk are all several pounds better off thanks to me! Yesterday saw the first day of work. Here’s the studio before I started (note the ‘special’ colour of the walls):

Plus a special message (I’ve always wanted to graffiti a wall that I own!):

Shortly after,  I’d taken up both the laminate floor and underlay and was ready to take up the floorboards:

Floor up!

Only at this point did I realise that I actually had no idea how to get up the floorboards without damaging them, one call to a builder friend and a trip to my local DIY store later and I was sorted!

I’ll outline the next steps in my next post, so far so good, and I’m having fun (no hammer or splinter injuries to report!).

    So, how do you remove floor boards without damaging them – you left that bit out!

      Good call, missed that! Crowbar, gently, making sure to work gradually on both sides and a mini crowbar-like thing that’s really good at getting up nails. Well, that’s what I was told and it worked for me! Only one split bit of board 🙂
