Looks ace. So nice of you to do all that just so the neighbours can hear your music properly.

No, just resting on. The same square rubber feet I used on the amp are on the resting edge of the speakers too. Secure enough, the bench is pretty weighty too.

I saved my washing machine today by managing to fish out of the filters 4 hair bobbles, an elastic band and a piece of wood.

Oh how I laughed when I realised the hair bobbles and elastic bands were tangled beyond all comprehension.

Finished off the cabinets and put some lights in them too. They're practically empty so I've got loads more space to take up!!

Lego/sewing room is very nearly complete now, still waiting on a furniture delivery to take some more Lego storage but hopefully that will come in the next 10-14 days.

We built a huge table too (2m x 1.8m) knocked it up outside and took it apart for rebuilding inside. We added a shelf underneath for additional storage. The top and shelf were made in a joinery workshop because I wanted a single surface without any joints in it, it's just chipboard but has a nice furniture grade melamine on - much better than old Conti board!

It's more a sewing machine repair room at the moment... I got the old Singer that's on top of the cabinet off Facebook and did it up, and now I think I addicted to it. I bought 4 more sewing machines at the weekend, ranging from 1920 to 1954.

Just spent an hour building a little table out of scrap wood for the printer to rest on. Was looking ok. Then, to prove how strong it was, I stood on on it.

Yeah, it broke.

You did prove how strong it was though, if you had stood on it and it hadn't broken, you wouldn't have proved anything.
Good test.

Untested. But breaking point is greater than weight of my printer

Identified an upper boundary at least, the new table is currently infinitely strong.

Isn't everything infinitely strong, until it is not.

I quite like doing bathrooms, it feels even more rewarding. Everyone loves a nicely done bathroom!

What are you putting back in there?

Shower cubicle down the end. Some kind of toilet and sink along the left (or bottom) wall.

That means the current soil pipe needs relocating, which is proving... fun.

Upstairs.

This is in the extension, so for most of that there's nothing on the other side of the wall.

Where the water pipe disappears into the wall is (approximately) where the soil stack is, and there's another bathroom on the other side of the wall there.

Those bricks look like they were thrown in after the fact, so if I can get them out without the whole thing collapsing, I'm hoping that's enough access to resite the soil pipe, and do something about all those cold water feeds.

But, yes, I'll leave the rest of the pipe in there as it's probably holding most of the wall up.
