Installing Hardwood Floors When Your Floor Isn’t Level

Scott said we may need to stop calling The Scary Room, well, scary, because now that it has a floor, it’s looking not-so-scary. Maybe we just call it The Room?

Choosing a Paint Color for the Scary Room

In what might be the most anticlimactic reveal of all time, we painted the Scary Room!
