I'm just sayin'.
Nice pics. And the room ain't so bad either.
DONE as in "stick a fork in it, you TURKEY!" You, my Little Grasshopper, must remember YOU'RE NOT DONE UNTIL I SAY YOU'RE DONE.
Turkey.

Tom,

You got me there! My food bowl is now in the HT!

And I'll never be done - I still have a decade or more of movies to catch up with before I'm done!

So last week I took someone up on the offer mentioned above. I went on a road-trip; part business, part hobby (and part interstate fence-mending*).
In the interest of peace, harmony, & interstate rivalries: I had the opportunity to enjoy some "Hanespitality" !

All this former Iowan can say is Thank You !!
After a full day of driving, (and numerous years of enduring these most interesting posts).
I finally got to meet THEE HANES in person.
And, may I be the first to confirm; he looks nothing at all like his avatar. smile.gif

It was a genuine pleasure to meet Mr. and Mrs. Hanes, and family in person.
Although my visit was brief - it was a very enjoyable diversion from my day behind the wheel (the happy-hour treatment was also very nice - much appreciated).
And to meet the family, behind the author was a nice bonus!!

By the way; his remodeled space is terrific, the photos do not begin to show how much work was done.
I hope I can some-day return the favor.

Thanks Again!
Cuzed2

Very cool. I have had the chance to meet two of my fellow AVS'ers and it is always nice to meet the person/family behind the posts. I would imagine that Hanes knows how to "par tay" with the best of them. It is always good to see the space in person as photos rarely do any space justice.

Craig,

I was in Chicago with my oldest and three of his buddies along with Mrs. RTROSE the first weekend in Aug for Lollapalooza (sp?), had I been solo I would have invited myself for a "happy hour visit" as well but Mrs. RTROSE kept me on a short leash in Chicago! wink.gif

Regards,

RTROSE
post #1717 of 1780
RT,

Funny - I have never been to Lollapalooza, or "the Taste". I prefer my downtown outings on a less crowded scale.
Regardless; next time, you (and other grizzled veterans) need to consider stopping by, we don't have crowds out here 35 miles away... smile.gif

Glad we were able to connect, cuzed, even if it was too short to properly demo the theater or consume copious quantities of adult beverages! Hopefully I can see your place on a future trip to the Chicagoland area, at which time ...

post #1720 of 1780
WOW!!! Congratulations Hanes, very well done. You actually finished the never ending project, I am humbled in your presence. How have you been otherwise, I haven't checking in for a year or so so I'm blown away here. eek.gif

Nice Transformations Hanes... I was beginning to think you only hung out here on AVS for the outstanding company.

Well look who's still alive and kickin' after all this time! Welcome back to this little corner of the interweb, where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average. tongue.gif

I know letting the riff raff know that I had actually finished the basement project probably tarnishes my cough, cough "reputation" a bit, but I'm sure folks will eventually recover from the shock. rolleyes.gif And it's not like it's a fancy theater like you or most of the others created - it's just the 'bonus' room of my basement project that I had to undertake because of the "M" word disaster. But it's more than good enough for me and my peeps! (I always wanted to have peeps!)

No. I was just taking an occasional break from my day job in the "service industry." The outstanding company was just a lucky break.

By far the best, most entertaining, and truly impressive build thread I have ever seen on the internet.

I'd take my hat off, but the bald spot my kids keep trying to convince me is there, might blind you...


Really great job Hanes, very much enjoyed it!


I guess I missed my chance to come over and bunnyhop that woodpile.

Course, I'm so old now, I don't think I could do it anymore...

Good thing you left room for walker storage next to the seating.

Wow. Thanks LaFonda! ^^^^

Glad you found your way back here to the Swamp after I finally finished. Who woulda ever thunk it, eh? Certainly not me!

I'll have to have to coax you out of retirement to do a bunnyhop over the next woodpile on the next project, Free.

Now don't be a stranger!

How much did you pay for that comment?

Sheesh........I just threw up a little in my mouth reading that.

Just kidding all ya all.

What's this I hear about you moving? What the hay hay. I think maybe there was a little of the "mold stuff" still infecting the brain cavity of one of my favorite AVS buddies (notice I said one of my favorite, not MY FAVORITE ever, just trying to keep it real here my peeps) so what gives with the moving and shifting? You know that the grass might be greener in the other pasture, but is is usually over the septic tank.....biggrin.gif

Too bad I'm not closer, I would definitely help you move and consume a couple of adult beverages together. Cheers!

Regards,

RTROSE

Thanks RT! I'm not used to such complimentary comments myself, for some strange reason.

My master plan for the upcoming move involves a handful of strong college guys, tons of free pizza, and enough beer and cash once they're done so they can go out and get into real trouble which they will hopefully remember about afterwards.

I'll keep one (or two) cool ones in reserve just in case you find yourself inextricably drawn to Minnesota Ground Zero on my move day!

I had no business starting this one!

Another one? That's like asking about the playoffs!

Do you have a timeline yet or are you still looking for a new "m" free residence? Something tells me that you'll be paying for a mold test as part of the inspection on the new place.
post #1735 of 1780
HOLY BATSHIT BATMAN!!!!!!

I haven't been on AVS is soooooo long that even Hanes has completed his space??? I think I hit my head or something. Hot damn my man color me impressed. Glad to see you finally finished and I will be sure to let AVS know that they can now officially shut down the entire site as hell has officially frozen over!!




In all reality my friend the space(s) look excellent and are a long time coming. Congrats on the great work (ie. check writing ability)now go enjoy your space. biggrin.gif
post #1736 of 1780
WOW!! Been hibernating for so long that I totally missed this. Congrats Hanes!! Everything looks so 'civilized'.

p.s. surely, you don't think you're fooling anyone with that 'office' space (we can see that the desk has no work on it wink.gif)
post #1737 of 1780

Wow.................New member, been lurking for a while and your first post is here in Hanes thread? Now that is saying something. Hanes should feel quite honored for that.

Love your username though, could start a whole new "Top Gear" franchise.

Thanks man! Yeah I'm not a real big forum poster but I got bored at work and decided to read up on some basement installs. This thread was awesome! Not only for a good laugh, a warm fuzzy (the kids part) and a "Damn I should never complain about my basement problems" part!
I made a new thread introducing myself and my little cave.
