The only additional flooring treatment beyond the slab will be rubber mats in areas where I stand still for periods of time. I imagine it is some combination of climate, being a native son, good footwear, and good posture (thanks mom) that makes working on the generally unforgiving slab a non-issue for me.Speaking of floors, what will you be using?
Hi Glenn. Everything is coming out great IMHO. I have a question regarding the aircoditioning unit; I understand that you made the whole installation, but filling it with the cooling gas, did you do it yourself as well or you had to hire a pro to do it? Or did I miss somenthing?
Houston, we have HVAC . . .At least Unit 1 is online and fully tested / operational.

Cools, Heats, Fan-only, and a Low humidity mode (not a dehumidifier).

Everything else on the second unit has gone smoother than on the first (no surprise there) so I hope this trend carries on through the completion of the second unit tomorrow. After that there is just a little this-n-that before the insulation and wallboard can go up.
The units I ordered come with enough gas in the outdoor units to run the basic line set length and the indoor unit if you vacuum down those components prior to releasing the gas into the combined systems. On these particular units if you use line sets longer than 26 feet (just under 8 meters) or shorter than 16 feet (just under 5 meters) you have to add or remove gas. The gas is sealed inside the outdoor unit via a couple of valves used for this purpose. The gas travels in a loop in this type of system (one that cools and heats with the same components).Hi Glenn.

I appreciate the info. I have a floor product that I picked up at Sam’s Club of all places. I’ve been using it for over 15 years and still have a few new packs that I picked up when it was on sale at a good price.glenn..re the floor..I bought exercise mat. Interlocking 2x2 squares..works very well.
On Amazon..not home , so no link, but it is 3/4" and comfy. YMMV
Not to mention the prices. I've had some irrigation projects where getting the pvc parts has been tricky.It is getting so frustrating trying to get materials. To get the siding, roof sheathing, flashing, roofing, and underlay I have had to go to 2 Home Depots, a Lowes and a roofing supply. I am still waiting on some stuff to arrive so I can go and pick it up. I planned to have the DC shed built by now and I haven't even been able to gather all the materials yet . This is the kind of thing that once you start on it you want to work right through to completion. I don't want to end up with walls standing around waiting for siding and roof materials.
