Just ordered a closet storage system for my 2 year old son's room. We have another boy coming on Christmas and decided to keep his current room in baby mode and set up a new room for him. We bought a full bedroom set with a night stand and bookcase. He has 2 good closets in his room so I'm doing built in's in one of them. May tackle it this weekend but also ordered a vacuum for the garage and may re-paint it and start prepping for epoxy floor.

Tested the fridge by opening the door.
Tested the integrity of the electrical system by turning on/off several lights throughout the house.
Tested the integrity of the floor by walking around.
Tested the plumbing by taking a shower.

I am committed to daily inspections and testing of some or all vital systems within my home. You may all heap praise upon me now.

First time using RidX (septic tank cleaner). Anyone use this stuff much or have heard that it works or not?

Started work on my room and bathroom. Put up curtains in front of my closet instead of the two sliding mirror doors that were there. Hated not being able to use the middle of my closet which is already small enough to begin with.

Then in the bathroom I hung a glass vanity shelf to hold my normal toiletries. Toilet broke so I'll be fixing that soon. Then on to hanging pictures up on the wall.

This week:
Sealed the driveway (asphalt)
Had an overhead junction box wired up for a chandelier in the living room
Installed an additional GFCI outlet outside - didn't have one in front anywhere before
Having my living room, dining room, and foyer painted along with ceilings and trim in each

yeah - not doing any of this myself, work is too crazy, but progress nonetheless :rofl:

I just bought a new house (first home) and therefore have a metric sh!t ton to get done quickly. Here's a clip of what I did over the past weekend:

Removed brick shelves from fireplace using masonry wheel and angle grinder (made a big mess :thumbsup:).

Mounted TV on brick wall after removing shelves.

Constructed new work bench.

Bought an engine block from an E30 for $30 incl. pistons and crank shaft for coffee table project. :4ngie:

Cut down ugly trees and bushes in back yard.

This isn't the one that Jonjon has that he says it basically just looks nice but doesn't suck that much up? I'm actually pouring my floor in my new garage on Saturday, so I'm looking for ideas.

If you stick to using it for cars and basic garage dirt its good. But if you suck up drywall dust for example, the filter clogs right up. It also isn't a wet vac, which is something to keep in mind.
