I seriously did not want to touch anything or mess around, I just want to confirm that it functioned. I know very little about the day to day workings of projectors and thought the zoom and focus may have been motorized like a digital camera.
I had the first electrical contractor in last night, not too many surpirses and he had some good ideas. Mention of screen and projector outlets etc. did not phase him so things should be good in that respect.
Got to get in some competitive quotes and see what I am dealing with price wise.
I feel real stupid. I looked at the picture before I read your comment and I was saying to myself "what kind a saw is that and how the hell did he cut a access panel with it" then i realized it a a toy.... then I read you comment.
Started on the laundry area last night, moved the washer to its original location only to find out there was no fittings for the hoses and the drain pipe was not even glued. So I am going to try to get the walls framed and plumbing done tomorrow.
Cut the pipes tonight, drained, and soldered caps (first time plumber, I have assisted but first solo mission).
Cut the sump connection, it is steady -10 here so not so worried about a thaw in the next few days.
Removed the old insulation and started with the foam board.
Are you planning to tapcon down the OSB? or Just the walls?
I went with delta FL (similar to platon), and I followed manufacturer instructions to tapcon down every 2' along the board edge of the boards.
My tips for anyone reading/considering this.
1) Rent a real hammer drill with an SDS bit. Takes seconds to drill a hole instead of minutes. Quieter too.
2) Get an impact driver to drive the tapcon... works way better.
3) Get a can of compressed air. When you finish drilling the hole, blow it out. I was snapping the tapcons left and right before I started doing this, haven't broken a single one since.
4) Use the smallest tapcons possible!
