Also, that is a great built-in in the front. We have been considering doing something similiar to house computer and Audio/Visual stuff.
After prepping the floor, I edged the entire floor with a black molding which was wide enough and deep enough to slot in the cork underlay and the tiles to where it gave enough room for contaction and expansion and also a nice trim. Then cut the cork underlay and used a simple water based cork adhesive lightly applied. I then weighted it for a month with luan ply. I then cut and fit the cork tile and applied a water based tile adhesive. Then I put 3 coats of satin poly ( duramax by minwax) I just took the rig on a 1500
mile road trip and the floor held up perfectly.
The build in at the front houses all the audio-visual wiring and gizmos. I drilled 2 x 2.5" holes (one each end) to drop the wiring through.
The other work station/countertop I built after taking out the sofa/bed in the kitchen (never used it)..I fabricated an aluminum frame over the wheel base (very light) and shelved in the lower part and coutertopped the top. it houses all the wiring and gizmos in the same way (access holes on each end and one in the center).
