This is scary are you reading my mind......Sonik Wiz
I was about to put together some pictures of the next stage of the build today.

There has been delays but is progressing forwards, we here in NZ are more or less back to normal with this pandemic just our borders are in semi lock down people coming back home to NZ how are NZ`ers....

I decided to do the interior painting my self to safe some money, but I wish I got the pro`s in my neck & my hands which I have problems with I thought I could handle it but I will carry on, there is not that much to finish there is the light fittings & power points fuss box, the last will be the concrete drive to the garage.

That is a choice set up you've got going there! Whats the plan for HVAC? I notice it's rather close to the house which has a window so.... can't see much out of it now.

I will give you a hint the first letter is D and there is another hint in my announcement that I am going to paint a mural It will be a compilation of themes ..

The left window in the picture has only a view of the back yard & the sliding door will have a wooden deck out side to steps to the house. to the back door.

I like how you think and how you've started with obtaining the central piece first: the refrigerator. ;)

You only a few steps away from a cold beverage and that is the key to any self-respecting Man-Cave.

Well done Bill! You're off to great things with your project. :)

That is amazing in so many ways! Are you or someone else actually doing the art work painting? Looks inspired & perfect!
I haven't seen any pics of a loo, a water closet, a toilet, a bathroom or whatever you call it in NZ. So maybe that means a trip across the threshold out into the weather & back into the house? To touch on Simon A's comment, when reaching for a cold beverage I'd say a toilet is a worthy audiophile upgrade.

Hi. Sonik Wiz

Yes I am the one how has painted the murals I have copied these from the internet just as a reference they are not exactly the same there is a bit of artistic difference not perfect but good enough.

Yes ...Simon A...there is a fridge for all sorts of beverages to go init, And.... Sonik Wiz... there is NO loo, a water closet, a toilet, a bathroom......... Because it would of been more stringent for a permit from the Local Council and more money involved remember it has nearly been 4 YEARS to get from plan A to plan B to get a the right permit which I have now thank the LORD....
