Susan, great minds think alike! I had also thought about simply putting in a support system of beams and flooring through the room, though that would mean quite a space for critters, dust, and stuff to accumulate underneat. But if I don't do concrete, I may well do this. Seriously. This is a very good idea, thanks for the confirmation of that.

If I put in concrete, it would be permanent. I have this gorgeous wood paneling in that room, but it all stops 6" above the floor, and when there was carpeting in here, it ran up the wall that far. I've tiled around the room to cover that 6" bare concrete. Concrete in here would mean it would be flush with the floor surface and would look perfectly normal. And I'd have them put in a very smooth concrete surface, maybe even one that looks like limestone without having to have tile. They can do great things with decorative concrete staining.

Okay. I'm certifiable. I just stepped into the breech and offered to send out Secret Santa assignments on Monday if everyone who is participating will contact me by late on Sunday. I've set up a table in Word and will simply add everyone on one side, then print it out, cut it up, and rearrange the list to make the assignments. If you were part of that, please send me your particulars. If we have any orphans in the thing and you can send a little something extra, let me know and I may call on you to come to the rescue.

I love the Secret Santa stuff and hate to see it just die this year. So, here I am.
