mod of your pad thread

since we have thread about what recent mods you've done to your car, here is one about mods you have done to your home/ living space. wheather its installing a new rug, entertainment unit or door knob.

amp and speakers
onkyo, 5.1 750watt. i have no room for 7.1 speakers



dvd player. harmon k, apparently its the best upconverting dvd player on the market.

Just put in new Bedrrom windows, kitchen window, dining room window. Bathroom window that got sent out was the wrong one, so I have to wait for that, living room window's future is undecided as of yet. 4 New interior doors, new back door and new front door. New Furnace and hot water tank. 42" HD plasma for the living room with my old surround setup for now. Hooked up an FM mod (thanks spoo) to my computer, so now I can listen to whatever is on my computer in any room of the house, including the garage (free 5.1 setup from my buddy's house that caught fire).

Near future: Hook up the projector, hide wires for the surround, start building the basement.

gravel driveway and walkway, seeded and reseeded the front and back yard, built a shed this summer, wired for surround, ran coax/phone/ethernet cable to every room. going to be changing the carpet to hardwood in the next week or so, once it has aclimatized to the house, finally ditched cable and went StarChoice, got a new 72 inch HD tv to go with it, and a HD DVD player as well, next installing puck lights on the deck and in the soffits and getting rid of the carriage lighting, probably pot lights and track lights in the inside of the house and updating all the switches to dimmers.

w00000t! My buddy and I (we're renting a 2br basement suite) just got a 32" TV for free...only fault: speakers don't work. No problem, we also got a bookshelf stereo for free...so a trip to Wally World and 5-buck RCA cables later we have a kickin' setup on the floor of the living room.

Other mad modz to the DHT House (we're both reporters for the paper Daily Herald-Tribune and, so far, I've had 4 of our reporters living there lol) include couch cushions and a bean-bag chair for the living room (as well as some old-ass furniture we scored for free we're gonna put the TV on).

My room has a bunch of DUB cars and VW models, a gigantic BC flag, an inflatable mattress for a bed (courtesy of another reporter who moved back to Newfieland) and kitchen cabinets I found for free in Jasper acting as a dresser.

Damien's room is keepin' it real with a hide-a-bed he picked up for a cool fiddy-dolla bill and a desk one of our old reporters left behind.

Can you tell that we're both ready to get the fuck outta this town ASAP?
My goal is to have only as much stuff as I can fit into my Zuki So far so good

ooh...almost forgot my pride and joy: my remote control heater!!! That baby's a god's gift in -30 weather!!!
