This weekend my son and I installed the front and rear speakers, ran the speaker / RCA cables to the back and installed the wiring for the second battery.

Re: What is new in your little world?

Monday AM just gone here. I've been doing some housework. I love cleaning especially in the heat, oh and we're having a heat wave here of sorts.

I say of sorts because I am high in an apartment complex by the ocean and we get lovely sea breezes most days :D so temperature predictions don't faze us too much. Poor buggers out west (central Queensland) are copping it :(

Thumbnails here FYI..

I think I mentioned air conditioning problems earlier herein. Well I was thinking 'endoscopes' as you do and wondered what was out there for the average Joe.

I was a little surprised to find one on ebay that said it could connect to my smart phone :rolleyes: I thought no way, but today the package arrived (from where else) and after some initial teething problems I got this little inspection camera working off my smartphone :eek:

Scary stuff. Like a spy camera it is so small :paranoid: Who would have thought!

Anyway, this is going to allow me to check out the voids in the AC ducting in my ceiling (behind that silver insulation covering) and see if the motors that drive the flap/valves are working or not :up:

Just don't replace your A/C unit with "same / same" if it's larger than 5 tons. :up:

Is your house two story, or do you just have vaulted ceilings? Or both?

I really like the way some two story houses look, so I’m mulling over wether that’s what I want when I build. But I plan to die in this house, and I really don’t like the idea of stairs when I’m 80. It’d be a lot of wasted space when I’m older...

I was going to say really nice work shaft as it clearly shows impressive carpentry skills. Did you pre-paint the white pieces? That paint work is quality too :up:

Two story. I doubt I will live here that long, once my kids move out I will downsize.

I agree with Grandma... While the finish looks good, the execution was flawed...

Also... Who buys a house with an unfinished ceiling?... Poor ppl?...

Painted it on the ceiling. I built it with pre-primed poplar so I was able to get away just just two coats of bm satin impervo. I would normally spray it but its so high up the brush strokes don't even show. Finishing work is so tedious.

I did 3d sketchup models with multiple designs and I preferred this slimmer look. I had to work around the existing light boxes and I was worried about the outer squares looking too small relative to the middle square. I did a mockup with a full perimeter beam to give it a fully coffered look but like i said the outer boxes got to small. I also considered just a single perimeter board that was the same depth of the cross sections like in that 3d model i posted but eventually decided against it. Too me this ended up looking like 4 cross beams with a matching perimeter of crown moulding.

I looked at hundreds of ceilings and one thing I learned is there is no right way, its all personal preference.

Also it wasn't "unfinished" i removed the texture before i took that first pic.

I like the smaller coving, it makes the beams look structural :up:

As I said, I think the ceiling looks great. It was just something that stood out to me as I looked at it closer. Nothing wrong with it.

I understand, just tried to explain my reasoning.

I filled out my original post better with a couple more pics.

Re: What is new in your little world?

Me, sadly off to a funeral for an old workmate today :tear:
R.I.P. Mel B.

I also fed my fetish for Lego Technic; the two models below that I've been trying to locate for a while. I am so happy I was able to get my hands on them and looking forward to the build :)

Forgive my abbreviation for privacy considerations :smirk: I did forget there are others some call 'Mel B' about.

Mel or most called him Mal in our day was an all round good guy. I had forgotten he was a Vietnam veteran in the days Australia went to help the USA out over there. There were lots of stories at he funeral and wake yesterday. One I am having a problem believing in was that he carried the M60 machine gun for the section. Mel was never of large frame. It is just hard to picture.

There was a lovely letter written by a fellow soldier in the same infantry section saying he always felt safe knowing Mel was at his back and he was a forward scout. He mentioned every time he turned around while on on patrol Mel would give a wide smile and the thumbs up. Nice. Cheers Mel.

Sorry for your loss. Didn't want to seem insensitive with the Mel B pic. It was just the first thing that came to mind
