Some quick updates on the house. Finally got around to getting my remote switch done in the living room, then purchased a universal fan remote and set it up the same way, and mounted it to the wall. This was much easier than rewiring the room to add a switch by the bedroom door, and it works exactly the way I hoped! Anyhow:
I guess I don’t have a shot of the old ceiling fan, but I replaced it with this one since it was making noise. This one is a 60 inch monster, and it looks pretty good. The one I took out had a hefty 4 bulb light kit with full size bulbs. I put 100W LED bulbs in, so it was like turning on the sun. This one uses Candelabra bulbs (all the fans I looked at did) but I was able to put LED bulbs in at least to help with output.
I added to the ventilation a bit in the cabinet, and did some rearranging. I now have the receiver on top since that it was everyone recommends. That alone cut heat down considerably. These Airplate fans are neat. I also bought one of their Aircom fans for on top of the receiver. If I turn that on, I can shed about 20* in a matter of minutes, I would say that is pretty incredible.
The shelves are all about function. If anyone is picking up my A/V equipment and judging my shelves, we have more of an issue.
Since I rearranged I needed a new hole to pass wires through, and I couldn’t get to my drill in the garage and did not feel like moving the cars around. So, don’t be a chump. Use a hole saw with your hands! It actually worked quite well lol.
Here it is as it sits. I have a credit at Monoprice, so I may look into a 4K receiver unless I find something else that they sell that I really need. We will see what the near future holds.
I let the system stretch its legs a bit watching all of the Terminator movies. Definitely enhances the viewing experience. I am really happy I finally did it!
I have been trying to get a tree company out to do the last few trees and help me with stump removal. I need to get on it quick, since my neighbor just had all of this delivered:
So, immediate priority is getting all of the trees finished, then I will knock out the fence ASAP. Then I can put my new shed together, and get some pavers in the back yard for the red car to park on! It’s getting there.
Thanks for looking!
