Both cheeks makes you an *ss.
Not much padding left anymore. Probably fit a Thermos bottle in the back pocket now.
Damn! Did i read that correctly
Sorry, i couldn't resist.
I have so got to study my phraseology better before hitting the save key.
I expected that from Cheaps or E.E.L. Should have known better.
I can't find a way to say Mvagusta went too far with the thermos-thing, and not make it sound like he...
Wasn't there a project here somewhere? I could have sworn...
Oh well, off to bump Cheaps' Ghetto mod again
H2O-C7 is still close to done but it needs a new space to live.
I'm sorry John, but first you talk about having thermal bottles up your ... and now you cover your walls with stuff that's named Johns Manville? That sounds like a random gay club.
Is there something we don't [want to] know?
My lady/wife Marilyn was a Registered Nurse for years and then a teacher of Autistic elementary kids. She's been watching the work and politely commented that "Some of these are wrong. They are upside down."
Hide it with the plaster board and don't tell her. She will make me turn them over.
I have just finished reading this "mod"/scratch build from the beginning and wow! I am very impressed.
I must say, it is a lot easier reading through all the problems you had with shipping on a few pages that it must have been in real time.
Anyway, I am very impressed, keep up the good work!
a bit off topic, but your tack room, did you used to have tack in it, as in for horses? That is what I would take it to mean but there may be a strange American use for it.
Thank you. It has been a long road but the forum members have been supportive to no end.
Buiding a mini-ITX on the workbench is way easier than insulating and sheetrocking a cathedral ceiling tack room by myself.
I ache in places the younger members haven't even grown yet. I need to finish H20-C7 up so I can get on with "Installation 05" but Marilyn has chemo therapy shot in her eye tomorrow so I will be Alfred the Butler for her.
It is indeed a place to hang tack for horses but I had it built to make a personal retreat. A space for me and my strange toys.
It's called Dreamland by the family since that is the name of the greyish paint color on the outside.
It takes some real cajones to whack out a window in a brand new $2000 tackroom. I ordered it without windows so I could install one that matches the house. Sliding white vinyl 2" x 2".
It has a little porch and rain gutters!
Is that one of the UFO's from War Of The Worlds in the window reflection?
I had to put on the gutters and the downspouts. The neighbor had to cut down a massive 50+ year old tree that was my shade and weather stop. Still doing the back gutters.
The UFO thing is the reflection of a tall street light out front and the white piece is the factory label I haven't removed yet.
A fun project. I don't think it would take this long but I'm doing it my self and not as young as I once was.
That's awesome, John! Will it have running water?
It will when the project is finished!
I have this stainless steel 'bar sink'. It's pretty small. It goes here:
Closet is on the way left, then a full width counter top and more of the cheap cabinetss underneath.
plumb it out the wall to hook to a garden hose
12 volt H2O pump with a supply tank under the cabinet.
Both ways get a catch bucket underneath since I don't want to drain it into the yard directly.
Oh, so you're liquid cooling the place? Well, it's way more efficient than ole' air, eh?
Propane heat and an air conditioner too! That's why the insulation - all season goodness.
I forgot the pics of 'The Fridge'.
Primary piece of equipment in a man's personal space.
