4 hours of trim installation. Things are starting to look good in he depot. I wish my camera would talk to the land lady computer. She put it in the hospital and something is changed. I HATE TECHNOLOGY !

I am so ashamed ...... :roll:

I went to work on adding 2 duplex outlets both of which were switch controlled and wanted to tag them into an existing outlet in the Depot. All I had lying about was some 12 - 3 underground wire left from the tag to the she shed. I hate that honking big sh** for a couple tiny night lamps. :x Well I am sure I made about every combination of screw ups anyone could come up with. Up for off down for on neutrals pulled out after all was reinstalled. I still haven't figured out why the ceiling fan quit. Anyway 4 hours later and about 6 beers I gave up. I will let clearer heads attack it again tomorrow. :beer:

Well after two 4 hour days the little box car nightlight works and tucked up over the window is a larger accent light. What about the view :D

Well this wasted space was driving me crazy. It is between the inside water tank and the exterior wall !



Image

I had this hump over the wheel well so a pullout would take some thinking.


Image

Had some casters and by adding a six inch block in the back I could now have a pull out.


Image

This case was a dumpster find and the landlady had some white melamine shelves so now I will soon have a roll out clothes storage.

More pics to follow of finished project.........

Image

all junk lying about except for a $9.00 habitat Moen towel bar cut down for a pull handle

Image Ready for clothes or what ever :)

The motor on the ceiling fan in the depot died so off I went last night and purchased three ceiling fans for $45.00. One has to be a $140.00 +/- unit it is gorgeous . So this weekend I get to uninstall and install the ceiling fans in the depot. I love cheap !

Yes both tiny's are getting new ( old) ceiling fans !

update 5/3...... After several frustrating hours the dead ceiling fan has been retired and the new $15.00 yard sale one has been installed. I never before in my life spent 4 hours putting up a ceiling fan. There was no switch for the light separate from the fan so if one was on both were on. I cabbage parts here and there from the dead fan and rewired to add a pull chain switch for the light assembly. The dead one was a ceiling hugger and the new one was a pendant so all the hanging brackets had to be changed and even the reinforcement in the ceiling had to be modified. I was never so glad to finally be done with such a "tiny" project.

That's a very good deal you got on those fans, Bob.
Container shipping costs from China are up 33% right now from a few months ago. Prices will be going up in the big box stores.
