Sorry. I've received some emails and such concerning the "UV 2-Way Blinds". I wanted to clear up the topic on here for any others that might have questions about them.
They are a custom window covering that allows you to see out but others cannot see in.
Here's perhaps a couple of pictures that might help illustrate this.
No Blinds installed.
Note the ladder in the sunroom showing through in the window in the first picture ... and the person standing in the sunroom in the next picture.
This is with UV 2-Way Blinds installed.
There are quite a few items set up in the sunroom by the windows for the first picture. The window becomes a mirror of sorts for the outside. Even if you put your head against the pane, you cannot see into the room. It works the same in the daylight as it does at night.
The second picture was taken today while I await the carpet crew. It should give an overall idea of the window coverings in question.
I sincerely hope that assists in understanding. It's a very cool product for those of us that enjoy privacy and security. The carpet workmen will be here in about an hour. Looking forward to finally getting this piece of the puzzle completed.
Building the foundational workstation base area. It's an 8x8 area that sits on top of the carpet. This is where the desk workstation and rack system will sit. Took forever to locate the materials that would work for this.
Picked out this top covering. Should look pretty cool with this faux natural wood covering. It is smooth and will allow the chair to roll around unimpeded.
Went with a quality tongue in groove flooring board. Two joined and then two more turned 90 degrees and joined with 8,426 screws.
A simple vinyl layer stapled between as a dampener.
Then we built some wood edging in order to give the platform an anti-toe-stubbing protection. This gave it a beveled appearance.
Should be cured and ready for prime time by noon tomorrow. I'll move the workstation and run the electronics then.
I had originally requested vinyl tile planks for the surface ... the builder believed this material to be stronger and superior to my request.
The chair didn't roll smoothly on the builder's covering choice. Too soft. Definitely strong ... just not hard enough.
So ... come Monday ... we try again.
We will rebuild it and ensure that the top is much harder.
"Eventually" is the operative word in the thread title.
We keep hammering away at this ... it will happen.
Staying upbeat and positive and knocking off the variables one at a time.
Just letting you guys know ... there's a request for insight into some drum Pre's and Mic's just around the corner. When we get there, please be open to fielding some inquiries from me. I've done my research and have narrowed it down to a handful of choices. I'll post that in another thread, I believe.
I’m a very very clumsy man. I move quickly from point A to point D with no regard for points B or C. I have a deep and well developed history of foot injuries. The toe-protectors were at my wife’s insistence. I have to agree with her call. It will save my feet big time.
