by Tom on Jul.21, 2010, under Project House

This is a previous project done in early 2008.

Before photo

After smashing the windows out and bricking up the outer wall. My first brick laying experience!! can you tell?

Had to make a stud wall for the inner wall. meant I didn’t have to do any plastering.

Plasterboard – Awesome stuff. very cheap.

TV Cables in place.

Filling in the gaps.

First coat of paint. You can no longer tell that there used to be a window there!!

TV cabinet just got delivered. minus the furry critics.

Just one more thing to put up now…

New TV!!! woo hoo, Warhawk anyone!!

Would be so fun having the Winchester Pub at the back of the playfield while zombies are poping up all over the place.
