randysable is moving forward. Hopefully.
Prices were $13/sf installed, which by my calculation, comes to $4,550 in total. Of course, that doesn’t include the underlayment, which would be about another grand or so. I keep telling myself I don’t want to get ripped off but honestly, another part of me thinks I’d be willing to cut a check just to get out of here.
In lighter news, the door to the second bedroom was installed today, replacing the old accordion one the former owner put in for some reason, so now at least in theory I shouldn’t be able to so easily hear my roommate and his girlfriend. The bad news is the handyman that came took all of 9 hours to replace the door (he’s a wee bit on the older side) which left no time to fix the closet door, which keeps falling forward out of it’s track. I’d fix it myself but the part that’s broken is plastic and completely needs to be replaced, thus the enlistment of a handyman.
But at least things are moving forward. While at the Luna showroom they mentioned a type of neoprene underlayment that was 2-3mm thick and supposedly could block 70db. I googled it just now and it looks like I can pick it up for $0.325/sf from some place up in Mundelien, that also sells flooring and will install . . . looks like I’ll be calling them to see if they have a showroom I can visit this weekend.
