Gentlemen, I am going to go way off topic here. I know you are interested in how the bathroom is coming together. It is almost done and I will post pictures later. For now, I am going to switch gear to the HT (I know, I know, but bear with me, please).
I finally decided to tackle the equipment closet. I have been planning to buy a rack for about a year now, but I just can not seem to pull the trigger on a $1000 rack system. So I have been looking for alternatives and found something I thought would work reasonably well at Lowe's. It is a component shelving system in which you buy the shelves (wood, Plexiglas, of wire) and the legs between the shelves (8", 12" or 16"). You can also buy casters to attach to the bottom, so it rolls. It came to a grand total of $120.
Here is the equipment closet before
Here is the rack system:
Here it is installed:
I used the wire shelves between the components to facilitate air flow. I can roll it forward about 2.5' to access the rear of the equipment. All in all I am quite happy with the result and you can't beat the price
I also bought myself a little Christmas present, a Panamax power conditioner/surge protector (second shelf from the bottom).
I hope everyone had a merry Christmas.
