Update on Ebook about garage doors

This is an update on the new ebook I am working on about how to paint a typical metal garage door to look like wood.  I want to do some voiceovers on the short videos as I think it will be better than trying to explain what I am doing while I am painting.  I got this really good mic to work with but its so good it picks up every noise in the room.  After trying one voice over I thought the mic might have been bad so I called the company that made it and their tech support asked me send them a recording so they could analyze it and see if it was the mic or not.  So I did that the tech replied immediately told me it was a background noise in the room.  He said the mic is so good it will pick up stuff you can't hear with the human ear.  Nice.  He sent me a link from youtube on how to make a homemade sound booth to put the mic in so it won't pick up any background noises.  So I am in the process of getting that done before I can move on.
