« Part 2: Electric Part 3 of Basement Renovation series no next part

I hung the projector screen tonight to check it out. I was having concerns about the size of it. It went up easily enough for being hung by one person.
After hitting the button on the remote it was very nice to watch it slowly lower itself into the room. I think it’s a perfect size and I like the height that it ends up hanging. I was very happy right up until I hit the up button… and it didn’t go up.

Now I’ll be on a support call with them tomorrow. :O( Not the best ending, but I’ve heard good things about their support so hopefully this will be resolved soon.

Very cool! I look forward to seeing the completed project. What type of video system will you be installing?

Whowhoo! The replacement came today (actually they wouldn’t send a ‘replacement’ because of how I purchased it from them through Amazon.com – but they did take it back as a return). Then they were out of stock so I searched around and found the same model available for $10 less and free shipping!

I hung the new one up this morning and the screen went down and the screen went up! Back in business.

The concrete floor in most basements is structurally not part of the foundation; only tht basement wall are. If there are post supporting a main floor beam to form a post and beam system, these posts typically go right through the basement floor to a footing underneath the basement floor. And in the other hand, I want to share some information about our tax. There happen to be some businesses offering tax day deals. On April 15, you can get a large Papa John’s pizza, up to three toppings, for $10.40. You can get a coupon for a free taco from Taco Del Mar, or if you frequent Chickā€“Fil- A, save the receipt of whatever you purchase. Show up with the receipt again anytime for the rest of the month of April and you get that same purchase for free. Some people would get short term loans to get a deal that good. You could use the savings for debt consolidation from the cash you could save from tax day deals.
