Got started on the new pump platform and getting it boxed in as well.










wow they did a good job on that mini split system. Funny that you post pics of it since I did 3 of them on a single job we had this past monday except the ones I did were mitsubishi. Really nice systems when you don't got the room for reg a/c system also they're very quiet. I'm sure you'll be very happy with it.

In case yall were wondering what the rest of this room looks like. This is the main den in the middle of the house.
They laid the carpet down yesterday. Box over the fireplace is for the flat screen. It will be stained to match as well.

Oh. My. God. That looks amazing. What is that hole in the carpet?

Now were talking, lets get a Texas sized water stain on that carpet!

It looks really nice but your going to need two sofas back to back or a large turntable.

That's the emergency overflow, or maybe the sub-woofer?

Yea totally. I wouldn't know whether to watch the TV (when it gets installed) or the aquarium. How about sofas ON a turntable?

Just wondering if you had considered the Emporer Aquatics Smart HO UV systems when you were doing your planning for this build?

Also any updates?

Rebooting...

I just bumped into this thread. Will you be having tours going through your house? If so, I'll buy a ticket.

Very cool!

BUT I have to say...

I would have put the flat screen above the tank, not the fireplace. (you could have used a heavy duty swing arm)

Thats what I did here and its brilliant! And they don't compete or interfere with each other surprisingly.

During commercials all you do is look down a bit till the show comes back on! heheh

But my room is nowhere near as nice as yours! Really like it! The wood work is killer!
