    No, i'm not a commercial - just thought it'd be a great idea for a studio.
    It's not completely from the ground up...it's an extension/addition to an existing space...so there's no way to run piping throughout the whole floor.
    Also, it's going to be a thick floor...double 1/2" ply on a 2'x4' frame on the flat, and then underlayment and 3/4" hardwood...so not a situation where I would want the heat in the floor.
    Additionally...the A/C will be a mini-split w/heat pump...and then I'm going to also add hot water baseboard along one wall, tied into my existing furnace as a 3rd zone. That way I'll have the heat pump for mild-cold days...and the baseboard for the dead of winter cold days.

    I'm getting a greater appreciation for hardwood floor since I started tearing up the wall to wall carpeting my parents put in 40 plus years ago. Hey, it was the '70s, it was the fashion at the time. At least we never had shag carpet although I did campaign for it but was denied. Thankfully.
