Our home theatre is powered by Yamaha with all Mission speakers bi-wired.   The sub is a 150W Mission 10", the neighbours must just love me... I love to feel my bass.

 

 

Building Our Bar

We decided one night, our basement needs a bar.   After some paper scretches and brain storming, we came up with the "basic" plan.  What I mean by basic is we had a good idea of what we wanted, but were going to kinda "wing it."  Because as always, once we have an idea, we have to have it NOW!  So the next day right after work, we head down to Home Depot and start picking wood.    I knew the basic size, so we are grabbing 2x2, 2x4, nice birch plywood, some particle board, choose some cool moldings, nice cermic tiles (didn't want the mica look), found some cool mahogany coloured stain, and all the screws, glue, etc we needed.   After getting all this stuff home, we tore up the basement like never before.   Moving couches, computer, measuring in all kinds of directions to find "the spot."  Remember, we only had the "basic idea" of what we were doing.   Oh, did I mention we had never built a bar in our lives.   Once we had it all figured out, it was bedtime...  Up early in the morning, we started the building operation.    After a few days, a few booboos, we realized we built the bar right from the floor up, but never realized, there was no way this thing will ever move.   This would be the first booboo from "winging it."   So the bar is now permanent, yet useful addition to the basement.   The only way to move this thing s to cut the bottom off.   hahahaha.   Then after it is all completed, Shanna's father came to visit to check it out and he had a bar fridge in his truck.     Ohhhh yeahh.   When we were building the bar, we quickly research the size of a bar fridge.  I guess we were looking at a space saver or something cause new fridge we got didn't fit.   After some modification, the fridge fitted.   Yay!....

Building of the bar

We seem to be getting more faithful to updating the page! It must be getting colder outside. So we have now added another page to our Adventures chapter. You can see the building of the bar we built last July and August.

Painting Basement

Slow updating.... Was helping brother, and yesterday was a long day at work, I didn't even turn on my pc yesterday after work.   Wanted nothing to do with them, hehehe  have those days sometimes.   Played some GTA San Andreas again, I am at a really cool mission, which is a Terminator 2 rip off, but so fun.  I won't give it away for whoever is playing the game.  I got a hit counter script running on this page, look to the left side of the page, lol.   I have more ideas to do, and tonnes of pages to update, hopefully I will get some time to play with this.   I am painting my home theatre in my basement too!  Excited about that, although, minorly scared of the colour. lol.  Later
