    New home layout

    We generally see our landlord about 3 or 4 times a year if we're lucky. He has a great policy: "Do what you want (within reason) and I'll pay the bill if I like it"

    Which Roadbed would you Suggest?

    I use the true corkbed on a foam base. However, instead of nailing the track down, I used a product called No-Nails which is an adhesive similar to glue to tack down my track.
