When we built the addition to our house in NC, the intent was to have it serve as my wife’s art studio (upstairs) and a place for our exercise equipment and computers (downstairs). When it came to flooring for the addition, I went with purple heart, figuring that it could take a beating and still look good. Well as with all well thought out plans, we changed our minds about 50 times. We decided that the downstairs would become the library and dining room. That decision meant that all of our computer gear for networking was basically sitting on the floor (with the associated worm farm). I had another brain cramp and used some leftover purple heart flooring and eastern white pine to put together a cabinet that could be used to hide the equipment and match (hopefully) the existing decor.
