Although not a Hemi, I did stop and get a little digital camera today. Now I just need to learn how to use the darn thing. Here's a couple of pics but keep in mind that we are far from finished ...


The two windows in the den are coming out and French doors will be installed this week for access out to the pool...

As you can see, drywall is being touched up and the baseboards haven't been caulked. Smoked glass doors will cover the equipment rack and the cabinets for fridge (beer!) and ice maker on the opposite side. I discounted the MA rack whenever I built but I believe I'll get one installed in the future.

Window treatments are on the way and I'm in the process of building four shelves that will be installed under the glass block window. Just a few months ago this was actually our screened room.


The opening going into the new room was actually an outside single door with a single window next to it, we knocked out the concrete block, added 4x4 1/4" angle to support the header and installed the French doors...I'll finish the drywall whenever the other two matching French doors will be installed.



We still have quite a ways to go but from what this looked like just 5 months ago you would be amazed. The room is 25'x 14' with the ceiling being 7'6" (average) and built like a rock. I had somewhat of a tough time getting the 600 dialed in but the room is sounding pretty darn sweet now.

Maybe one of these days I'll learn how to take decent pictures!

Wow! Another beautiful room. It looks like a showroom in a hifi shop, but nicer! I'm getting really envious of you guys! But I have to ask, is that a plaid sheet on your window (top pic)?

Sonic, that is not plaid, that is a Scot Tartan!

Nice layout for the room.

Why thank you very much for the nice compliment Sonicfox, you're too sweet!

And yes ma'am that would be my son's plaid bed sheet from who knows how many years ago...we are having plantation shutters made for the room and wanted to have the windows covered during the interim. Wife always told me those old sheets would come in handy some day!

Yeah, what Mary said.

Very nice, BrotherBob!! Beautiful home. The built-ins are fantastic.

Man, that EP600 makes the M80's look almost scrawny.

Thanks for all the kind words y'all, I appreciate it. Like I stated above, we've still got quite a ways to go with the wrapping up and finish and I didn't really want to post until everything was finished but I was talked into it and what the hey...I'm always open to criticism and tips.
