tmskim,

Thanks! It's been about 3 years now, I think, and I'm very pleased with how it's holding up. Remember that this is in a workshop, so I'm willing to put up with imperfections. I've got some places that have buckled alittle. It would not be acceptable for me if that was happening in my house, but for my purposes it's no problem at all. I thought for sure I was going to have to pull up a large portion of it when in May of '10 we were hit with the floods you may have read about. Water came over the pad and under the floor. But, all I did was run fans and it was fine.

I believe all I did was put down some Thomsons water seal on the concrete. Then I put roofing paper on top of that...with the flooring on top of that. Everything is being held together by bisquits and is floating. Nothing is nailed down at all. The reason for buckling in a couple of places is probably because I may not have left enough space around the outside edges. But, I have had many band rehearsals and have built many a project in that room over the last 3 or so years. Would not have done it any differently. Hope that helps. jw

Hi. I noticed you did not get a reply on your clarifying questions... Were you able to get the answers elsewhere? And if so would you kindly pass them on to me too :-)

Thanks!!!
