get the upstairs rooms done as well since you have ceiling off already.
really really easy, just get that long drill bit from menards/homedepot that are like 4 feet long and flexible $19.

get the boxes for remodels, cut out the hole in upstairs wall for the box, feed the bit throu the hole, so it rests on the floor in the wall and start drilling, it will drill throu the 2x4, and then the floor, and come out in the basement.
remove the drillbit from the drill. tie a cable to the end of the drill bit and have someone pull it into the basement for ya.
just carefull on the pipes below the floor when drilling.

Re: House Projects

Alright, here is my latest project. We are totally redoing the bathroom. I started Sat. afternoon and this is what it looked like by Sunday night. Taking small tile like that off a floor sucks ass!! The first 2 are with just the wallpaper down and a bit of tile off. The 3rd is after most of the demo, but fixtures still in. The 4th and 5th are in full demo. I'll post up more pic's of the progress. Things are starting to go back together now.

Re: House Projects

geeks. The house will be wired up pretty good. Right now the Cable TV and internet layout will be as follows:

Cat5 in downstairs bedroom
Cat5 in downstairs media/movie/family room
Cat5 in upstairs den
Secure Wireless in whole house.

Cable w/ DVR in downstairs bedroom
Cable w/ DVR in each of the two upstairs bedroom
Cable w/regular box in downstairs media/movie/family room
Cable w/regular box in upstairs den
Cable w/regular box in living room.

I will have pics of more shit this weekend since we are moving the rest of the shit. If anyone is bored Sat or Sun and wants to lend a hand with a few things let me know. We are hiring movers for Sat moring (woot!) but will just be tossing everything in the garage or upstairs while we sort and arrage. Beer & food obviously provided.

Re: House Projects

the standard is not set yet but its pretty close for the N.

wireless is nice, but you have to deal with signal degredation and lots of other junk, wired gigabit ftw.. ;p

Re: House Projects

Alright, new plumbing is in the wall. The new fixtures wouldn't use the old valve in the wall, so I had to put new stuff in. The new tile backer is up around the shower and the thinset is curing right now, that is why the boards are on the wall, they are holding the tile backer and dry wall flush until the thinset cures. The marble floor will start going in tomorrow and hopefully be done on Sun. Then the fixtures can go in monday and we can have a toilet upstairs again, yay!

Re: House Projects

I just got done installing the slate floor. We had ordered marble from Home Depot and 2 of the boxes matched but the other 2 were totally separate colors. It looked like shit so we went with a slate floor. It looks pretty cool I think! I have to wait 3 days until I can grout it. I will be doing the tile around the shower in 2 days. Slate is a bit more difficult than marble, but it still wasn't too bad.
