Changing Rooms ......

Recommended Posts

Since NOVEMBER 2004 I have been doing work to my house, mainly re-doing the whole living room and the stair case that goes up stairs.

The changes have included a fishtank built into the wall, and a new ceiling, not forgetting the stair lights and new real wooden flooring !

I have spent endless hours, cut fingers, bruises and sleepless nights to complete the projects, and they are alost complete.

Below you can find the links to my projects, feel free to comment on what you think, baring in mind that the place is only 95% complete !

You see those custom made panels I have ? made from MDF and leather .......... they are attached to the wall with velcro .. and can come off to feed fish, clean tank etc !

The bottom one also comes off , so that the fishtank can easily be taken 'out' of the wall !

looking good !

a couple of questions though :)

is the electric and gas meters boarded in

is the consumer unit boxed in

they seem to be not too accessible, if you have a gas leak you will want to get to that valve quick, what happens when they want to change the meters !!

the stair lights , look like 12v with trannys , have you allowed for ventilation ?

the tank looks good , make sure you have a cover , even just bits of glass to stop condensation

:D

The meters and comsumer unit is accessable via the leather pads attached to the wall. You can remove those pads (attached with velcro) and the gas / electric unit is on show. :P

The stair lights are on 12v transformers, the lights are fixed inthe the stairs and have an inch behind each light for ventilation.

The transformers are all located at the bottom of the stairs, behind the "swtich" for the light. So if you open the switch, it reveals the transformers hiden behind. Loads of room there ! :D
