Mod of the day:


FINALLY wall mounted my TV.

Also installed a custom made walnut floating unit for the goods.

Anchored it all to the concrete wall behind it with 6 lag bolts and anchors. The cabinet weighs about 120 lbs. i figure it should be strong enough. my gay ass ryobi hammer drill would NOT cut 1/2" holes in the concrete so we had to go to HD and rent the big boy BOSCH hammer drill. that thing was close to the best $50 ive ever spent. SOOO fast.


next up: finish hiding all the wires



Look ma! no legs!



Special thanks to Paul and my buddy Alan! couldnt have done it by myself haha thats for damn sure.

Looks good! You cleaned the mess up pretty quick... Thought you'd still be going at it with that vacuum

Looks wicked Chris, you did it up good!

The floating walnut unit looks nice and clean, tasteful modern touch.
Like how the TV sit's low aswell, good choice.

I give it 2 thumbs up, well worth the labor you put Paul through

Good luck with the wiring, with the space you discovered between the drywall and the concrete, it should'nt be a problem. Buy a PS3 before hand

Nice lights in the shower Chris. Flush is dope.
Sick home theater too! That's where the part out went
I'm coming by for an espresso, a hockey game, and a shower


Dasnowman: nice patio build! Crazy how you built it all yourself. I like the planters with bench seating.
You must be loving it with the weather we're having.

Next project, big locks for the bathroom door.



nice work loomin.
I've seen a lot of custom entertainment installs in my line of work, and that one is stellar. I don't know of a single installer who would have been as thorough as you guys were. Well done.

nope it does not. however because we live in a strata controlled building, you have to apply to council for permission to renovate/modify, then have a professional plumber do the work. Im halfway through a bathroom reno and im following all of the rules. dont need any fines.

Washing machines were originally installed in some units in my building. unfortunately some units still have the original washers and dryers from 1977. old stuff breaks.

Nice thread Chris, and place is looking good! I've recently joined the homeowner's club as well as of last week. Bought a brand new townhouse in Richmond, it's going to get busy with moving in August. Furniture shopping is pretty much all done, just need to pick up the pieces and put them in.

As for renos, there are a few... first off, any tips on painting? Or tearing down a partition wall?

Ill have to snap off some pics of my current disaster (I mean house), where busy with an addition.


Mynxi, as for painting (where I can help) pick a good quality paint, youll get better coverage and even tones, I use Benjamin Moore but there are others that are good. And if it's brand new and the walls are builder beige you should just be able to add colour and go, no priming necessary. If you go with a cheap paint then prime it, or if it's not beige or your changing the colour dramatically (red to blue) prime again.

painting sucks but with the right tools and good paint it's way nicer. I know Ive painted 4 house (inside only one outside and that SUCKS!)
