So now that we own our home we have decided to get to work on changing it! Rick wasted no time cutting into the walls :) I always knew that Rick was pretty handy around the house. If I ever need anything fixed I always just ask him and know it will be good as new when he is done with it. However, I have to say that I had no idea that he was a full on electrician and carpenter! He decided he wants to have a HTPC (Home Theater PC) in our house. This meant that he had to wire our whole house for it, and boy did he dig right in! First things to go were the baseboards. He ripped them right off (good thing we are replacing all of our baseboards with thicker, white ones) and cut a line along the whole bottom of the wall. He wired Cat 5E cables throughout and also an HDMI cable from the TV through the walls. We have a closet in our hall by the kitchen that he is going to turn into his "control panel". Once he cut a line along the whole bottom of the wall he had to make it go from the family room into the closet. I don't even know how his brain figured out how to do it all but it did and he got the cables stringed into the closet......
Baseboards off....cutting the hole
Cutting around the sliding glass door
Running the wire around the glass door
After all the wires were strung through the walls.
Now onto the "control panel" closet! Before he cut out the wall...
Starting to cut into the wall in the closet
Half of the hole cut out
The whole hole is now cut out, he also had to cut out a 2X4 that ran through the hole
Now he is putting the frame of the cabinet in
Working on the frame in our extremely cluttered garage
Is anyone else in awe of all that my handy husband did? I can't believe he figured out how to do it all on his own. Can't wait until it is "pretty" :) We will keep posting updates of our remodel!
