FiSh RoOm BuilT

Hello ppl of TPT!

As some may already now, I have many aquariums, and better even, got a house extension room i can turn into a fishroom, eventually store.

But this room is very unfinished, so here is the story of it and the progress in order to make it into my own lil paradise.

I began renovating it last year, before i ever put the first tank inside. It was very messy, water infiltration, cement floors all not leveled.

I'll show you pictures of the evolution from last year when i began my work, till today when Im finally painting the room. Below it all, I include a video I recorded last night.

Thanks for watching.

Hahaha dont get so infatuated just yet.. dirt bike wasnt mine, we didnt even know how to ride it.. But guitars are mine... and just sold my second benchpress to get me another tank.

Theres been a small water infiltration, yet agian, in that room. We redid cement lining last summer around that wall, when there was a massive water infiltration, but didnt patch it properly.. we we.. i mean the stupid guy we hired to fix it.. so i had to go outside today unsnow the side of the wall and re-isolate it. Hopefully it will dry before it freezes, luckily today we finally had 0 degrees outside, so might just do the trick.

I wont take pictures just yet of the room, even though i finished painting he ceiling, cuz it looks a lot like a hot mess right now. But im beginning to paint the walls today so 1-2 days and u will see some good results.
Will keep u all updated !
