Zod

Garage conversion results...

36 posts in this topic

As some of you know Mrs Zod and I are expecting a baby girl in June. This means my old home office is now the nursery, so the garage needed to be my office. I am pretty happy with the results.

Went with a mini split HVAC heat pump, keeps it nice and warm and has its own thermostat.

Looks good. We did something way back in our previous house, took half the garage for a room. Excellent use of resources.

Good job man.

Is that a gas or electric water heater?

Wow...that looks really good. Find any bodies in that garage when you cleaned it out? I think I snuck one in there last time we went fishing when you weren't looking.

That gorgeous office area was already there, just hidden under that massive pile of poo.

Definitely gas. You can see the vent coming from the top into the ceiling.

How does it look from outside? It was a big deal to me to not be able to tell I had converted the garage. I ripped the siding down & redid it so you couldnt see it, mad eit look like the rest of the front of the house. Now I just gotta get around to siding the back & 2 sides.....

Looks good Zod, surprised you dont have more pictures on the wall....

How much did you do vs hiring somebody? Payin JR in beers does not count as hiring somebody... But coverin the cost of Panthro's next trip to Thailand does...

I did some of it and hired out the rest. I had to have an electrician wire it because it was permitted and inspected about 6 times total (big waste of tax money). Had a brick mason put in a brick skirt on the front to match the rest of the house. Also hired a guy to do the framing and external door and windows. I did the drywall, fixtures, floor, molding, etc. So glad its over.

Yes it is a gas water heater. I put in 2 four inch vents for combustion air as required by code so that the pilot light stays lit. So far no problems.

    • Best suited for a rotational role
    • We just resigned Cody until 2020-21 and Frank will be on his rookie contract until 19-20. I think we don't need to worry about this at all. The biggest issue we have will be Kemba, but since Kemba and Dwight expire at the same time we will have plenty of money. That Howard trade really helped free up Miles 12m at the right time.  Now, as far as fit is concerned. Zeller just makes everybody look better. He will help out the second unit tremendously. I think he will be a great fit with Monk and Frank in that 2nd unit.  Teams go small, take out Dwight put Zeller in. Marvin not shooting well, but in Frank and team with Dwight or Zeller.  We now have options, something we didn't have last year. 
    • Depends on what the play calling looks like this year. I try to avoid judging individuals on the success of a group, unless it's the HC. If Shula's play calling looks like hot garbage like it has so far and Cam & co. are just making up for it like in 2015, then yes I'll continue to hate him. If the playbook (and situational playcalling) is indeed better then I'll be glad and start warming up to Shula.
