Please leave a comment if you have time or can be bothered.

Ok.
It looks like the studio is going to be finished on 14th June.

I know it's taken a while, all the waiting will be worth while.

I'll post some pics when it's done and let you know when the opening party will be.

Hi there,
as with all plans things are taking longer that we would like but still going ahead.
We are just outside Swindon and the sutdio is being built on the land where we live.
I'll have to get some pics taken and post the progress.

Can't wait until it is done so I can hopefully look forward to giving up real work and concentrating on doing the thing I really enjoy.

Thanks for your interest

All the best
Woody & Maryann

I seem to remember that the chairs I liked when I looked for new ones, were around ?5,000 each, all red vinyl and tons of chrome.

Decided a second mortgage to refit the shop was going a bit too far, so in the end we went for cheaper chairs from then local hairdressing wholesalers.

At the time you could get a catalogue with photos of all the chairs shown with a suitable backdrop, there was a 1950's style barbers shop with their top of the range chairs, I'm sure their were Belmont's but have been unable to locate these since.

The most important thing to consider when buying new chairs is the weight of the bases, you can guarantee that someone will stand on the base when getting into or off the chair, a light base, and it will tip.

The best chairs were always the old hydraulic barbers chairs but these are a rare as Rocking Horse Shit now.

For chairs you need something like this.

UK Site for chairs.

Belmont did do a retro hairdressing chair, looked like 1950's style. I had a catalogue some years ago. No idea if they still do that range.

Cheers Lionel,
That is a big help.
It looks like they can do the black and white checkerboard that I'm after too.
I've got some stainless and red vinyl stools so just need the red viynl sofa and the 50's theme is done. It might look a bit like the new Burger King layout though LOL.

I might have the chance of a couple of barbers chairs too. See what hapens.

Keep on Buzzin'

Hello Woody,

I had a glue down floor covering done in the studio a couple of years back, I forget what it is called but it has an antibacterial agent in the formula when made.

It's the same as used in industrial situations, i.e. public toilets, hospital floors, kitchens in restaurants, clean rooms etc.

You should be able to get details from an industrial flooring company.

They have different grades for different uses, medical grade has this extra antibacterial additive.

It is stiff on a roll, its put down in strips and heat welded at the joints. The edges can be fitted with a special edging that starts about an inch from the wall and goes up about three inches giving a large radius in the corner to stop dirt from getting trapped in sharp corners

Lots of different colours to choose from. I forget what brand I used, but some info here:

http://www.gerbertltd.com/vinyl_flooring.htm

http://www.polyflor.com/

This will give you an idea what you could use.

Some more info:

http://www.lightworks-user.com/downloads.php?filter=Marley&type=supplier

MarleyFloorsMarley_Conductive.lwa

(Static conductive vinyl flooring system. Protects electrical equipment from static build up. Ideal for access floor systems. Meets DHSS requirements for use in hospital operating theatres.)

You can also get antibacterial paint, I believe it contain silver which gives it the antibacterial properties. I think it cost me about ?60 for 2.5 litres.

The Studio is just about built.
I'm looking for some advice in what floor and wall coverings would be best to get through the local health inspection?
I'm looking to fit it out in a 50's diner style.
Any advice will be well apreciated.
Keep on buzzin'
Woody
