Happy Monday everyone! It has been a couple of weeks, and that is because sooo much work has been done on the Amish shed that I am transforming into a modern studio. It looks absolutely amazing!! Did I mention this is going to be a woman cave? LOL! The biggest development has been the installation of hardwood flooring. This is truly transforming this “shed”.  For those of you who have been following this blog, the inspiration for this studio began with an authentic Amish shed.

As far as hard wood flooring, I specifically selected engineered hardwood flooring in which actual hardwood is on a plywood substrate, this makes the wood more stable especially since the structure is free standing and will undergo fluctuations in weather.  I also selected hardwood flooring that was “hand scraped” which ties into the country theme I am looking to achieve.

One note, in a case like this in which weather could affect hardwood flooring, it was critical to have both heating and cooling installed in the studio, specifically heating controlled on a thermostat.

Take a look at this amazing transformation!!
