Thank you 🙏

I really appreciate the kinds words. I put a lot of effort into the design and working carefully through the options and decisions, both big and small.

I have never undertaken any project like this in my life. I had a great builder, who was curiously both very relaxed, but also incredibly hard working. He was also gracious enough to allow me some small design tweaks and interventions, part way through the build, which really helped.

The whole extension was essentially designed around my requirement to have a pool table, in a social, fun, but also ďmatureĒ space.

Thanks again sir

Here is some pictures of the new attached garage - King Rudi they have married up the roof line well now, it is seamless and when it is all done, should look pretty good.

Maybe I'll even get to park in it this winter, still saying the garage doors might come in sometime during January.

Same, but at least mine is wide enough that I can open all four doors and still do laps around the car. Next house is a 3+ car garage, or just a big garage with some sort of a house attached to it.

Not a ďhouseĒ project but it is for the house. Couldnít find any TV stand long enough that I liked for reasonable $$ so I watched a few YouTube videos, bought $60 worth of 2x4s and 2x6s and built this. Not the best craftsmanship but I think it came out pretty good for the first piece of furniture Iíve ever built. Goes with the rustic cabin theme. Will probably build another slightly shorter one for the ďconcession standĒ area Iím putting next to the home theater.

We have an old backsplit and there is always some work to be done.

We have done extensive interior renovations, and the outside is another labour of love.

This spring we had the deck replaced. Timing was not the best, due to lumber prices. However, the old deck was in a sorry state, with many boards just rotting under a persons weight.

We replaced the deck boards, as the 2x6 or 2x8 underneath were solid. We also replaced the privacy fence between our house and neighbours.

Next year, I have to stain the deck and also the deck that wraps around the house, which is still original.

Nice! Joe, my apologies; I don't know how I missed this post. They did well on butting everything up. Looks great. Post up some pics once the doors are on. Curious to see what you went with.

Joekerr Looking at your pics again this morning. What are you doing with the existing garage space? Reframing existing doors and smoothing out? Also, driveway, concrete or asphalt?

Nice work there. Love the use of pocket screws. But I'm calling bullshit on you...There's NO WAY that's $60 worth of lumber. More like $3,500.

Great DIY job, man!

So the driveway is going to remain asphalt as the other 100-150ft or so of the driveway is asphalt.

There are two bays of the existing garage as you have no doubt noticed. The bay that is partially covered is going to be framed in to a man door inside (with the outside exterior just lined up to existing wall and stuccoed. And that bay will be turned into a mudroom / laundry room.

The other garage bay that is not affected by the reno will remain a garage that I will keep the lawn tractor, snow blower, bikes, kids paraphernalia, etc in.

Eventually, I might put a shed in the back and move all of that stuff into it so it is a true garage once the kids move out and I can use it for a summer sports car. Assuming the amount of alcohol I am consuming during covid doesn't kill me first anyways. Or other life choices. I do enjoy going quickly in a vehicle, though I like to think that I'm careful about the time and place where I do so.

Great DIY job, man!
Thanks! Learned pocket screws from YouTube! I thought the wood would be expensive, but itís only super pricey for the fancy stuff Iím guessing youíre actually suppose to make furniture from. I used the cheapest 2x4s and 2x6s for the top. I believe it was like $4ish for each of the 9 2x4x8 and maybe $7ish for each of the 3 2x6x8. Iím probably over $60 if you add in the screws and stain and I had to buy the pocket screw gizmo.

All that being said I fucked up! Got TV in today and the feet are like a fucking INCH too deep and hang off the top! I also didnít take into account the wheels added height so the TV is fairly high up now, not horrible but could be a few inches lower. Lastly I didnít even think about my center channel speaker. In FL I have the TV mounted on the wall so the speaker just sat on the console and was below the tv. In this case 1 there was no room for it and 2 even if there was would block a good chunk of screen.

So I have begun work on version 2.0. I will use this one for the ďconcessionĒ stand area and Iím making a deeper, shorter version and will have to come up with some kind of shelf or something in the front for the center channel.

Most of my projects go that way too. You're not alone!

I'm the master of selecting some arbitrary dimension for no reason other than it looked about right. Only to find later I'm an inch too tall, a 1/2 inch too wide, or I didn't leave room for XYZ. Literally every time. You'd think it's learn. Nope.

You can go to Amazon and look for something like this (maybe you need something bigger for bigger TV).

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077MJZ6ZG...ing=UTF8&psc=1

I have one in Asheville to fit TV on tabletop and make room for center speaker.

Edit: Found a mediocre / not great pic.

Here is v 2.0 in it’s final resting area. I ended up using the butcher block countertop I had for this one as it was the perfect size for the deeper frame. You can also see v 1.0 next to it and my popcorn machine should be coming this weekend.

Pretty happy with the results. Will probably build more stuff now that I have some basic knowledge like lots of storage for the rest of the basement.

So I just realized I forgot to post the after photos on our kitchen reno. I totaled my car hydroplaning on the the hwy the Sunday before Thanksgiving (thread here: https://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1879999 ) . I ended up finishing the kitchen, 2 days later on Tues. night. Was literally painting the baseboards 2 hrs before picking up my family from the airport.

I don't have the clean counter photos, so my wife may kill me if she ever sees this lol
