I'd tend towards the right choice. To my eyes, both colour and pattern match better in the image.

Right

Sample on the left looks like the floor is dirty. My choice would be the lighter sample on the right.

Hey I remembered this comment but forget to tell you something super cool. The cement floor is already isolated from the retaining walls. The walls were pored first, then the floor was added. There is about an 1/8th inch of that cork/resin material between the wall and the floor. So it is already isolated to a very large degree.

I had a weird situation occur as I finished the insulation in the ceiling. I had been holding off until I knew what I was going to do with the garage door as I had to remove the support struts and chain rail/motor in order to finish the ceiling. So, now that I removed that stuff, the door will remain closed until the sliding door gets put in.

Anyhow, when I opened that last two bails of rockwool, they no longer were stiff and they did not tension fit the 23" gap like everything I put in before. I couldn't cut it as it just fell apart. It was an absolute mess. Like wrestling jello. I ended up using tape across the crossbeams as a kind of hammock. Took me as long to do the last 8 pieces as the previous 8 bails. The bails remained absolutely dry while being stored. Is there some expiration date for usage once you buy that stuff?

The sliding door goes in on Tuesday, so had a deadline to finally bite the bullet and disassemble and take down the garage door. I also plumbed dual HDMI and 7 channels of atmos/auro 3d into the ceiling. In the first picture you can see that I found our there was a header where I wanted to run the cable and had to angle both cable feeds rrrr. Anyhow, getting there. It'll start looking like I room when I do the Sheetrock next week/weekend once the sliding door is in.

Spent the morning sealing the floor and retaining wall. Hope stuff dries enough for me to put the main coat of primer/sealer on the retaining wall later today. Easier to ventilate and dry with no door LOL.

Rocked and ready to tape/mud which hopefully will get to tomorrow! Seems breakneck speed now after taking so long to gain momentum.

We have tape ... sanding/seams tomorrow. So close yet so far away still. Paint, Trim, Floor, solid door with floor stop, wiring/soldering and of course carrying heavy stuff. Being a one man show gets old.

sanding skim coat is like going to the beach ... you pull the damned sand, or in this case mud dust, out of all your cracks for a week.

Looking good, though.

I do not enjoy drywall work. At all.

I'll likely prime the drywall tonight or possibly tomorrow night. Then paint this weekend. But you know ... best laid plans.

I did manage to get the ceiling painted, ceiling speakers installed and the first coat of paint on the walls this weekend. Hope to get the 2nd coat of paint on the walls sometime this week in the evenings. Then maybe I'll get the retaining wall done this weekend. Then it'll be crown moulding and wiring of wall jacks. Floors will probably be a July 4th weekend thing.

Oh, another task I had to do was to clean up those seams on the concrete retaining wall near the floor. They made it so the baseboard would not go up to the wall. I'll still have to file the back in several locations. But the sledge and chisel took care of the big protruding seams.

I was tired of painting and patching outlet boxes. I didn't expose enough the junction boxes for the 5/8th drywall, so the outlets were difficult to pull out without damaging the drywall. Decided to do something more fun! I put up my guitar rails

It probably doesn't look like a lot of progress, but the network wiring is complete which was a PITA. The crown strip is in. And the sliding door frames and all the door and window frames are now painted. Just waiting for them to dry to stick back in. That leaves a lot of cleanup, outlet box leveling/straightening and FLOORS. It will likely be the weekend after the 4th before I put the floors in. But, we are nearing completion
