(Updates 4-4-10) SS's Tower of Power. (My workshop)

Post by ShockSlayer » Mon Jan 25, 2010 10:01 pm

PalmerTech bought my 95% finished GCp so I could pay for it.

CONSTRUCTION BEGINS. We removed the roof and put in a floor with a hatch(forgot to take pics) and then put the first wall supports up.
Image
Floor with hatch.
Image
2 wall supports up. And my dad is in thar
Image
Roof and side supports.
Image
Fixed up my door with GORILLA TAPEZ.
Image
Puttin some walls up.
Image
Shingled roof FTW
Image
THERE'S NO CARPET OR ELECTRICITY IN HERE YET OMG
Image
Wooden box part is done.
Image
Insulated the roof. You can also see the plug for the lights I will be getting sometime and the vent up in da corner.
Image
Insulated the walls. The styrofoam(not what you're thinking of, this stuff is like 9x thicker and more durable) had not been glued on yet, just cut to fit.
Image
I have an outlet in the corner. GO ME!
Image
The switch for the lights. Power bunnyhops off of the below outlet. The cover isn't on it nor is the styrofoam on the wall because I would soon be installing the air conditioning, and that's the wall it's gonna go on.
Image
This 2nd outlet is below the switch. The wires are exposed because I hadn't covered them yet.
Image
The styrofoam that goes where the air conditioner will be. It has yet to be cut to fit the air conditioner, which is why it's off.
Image
The hatch is open, leading to the floor below.
Image
The hatch is closed, sealing off the 2nd floor.
Image
I like the hinges, they hinge the hatch so I don't lose it, and so it's less work to move around.
Image
The handle. So I can open it. There is nothing worse than being trapped in a room alone in the dark with no friends.
Image
Moar awesome hingey-ness pictures. You can sorta see the 4x4 and 2x4 supports for the hatch, so I'm not gonna fall because it slips off. Also, you can see how thick the hatch itself is.
Image
I have yet to build in the ladder, something on the list to do. We have the parts necessary, I will probably do that the same day I install the air conditioner.
Image
Air conditioner finally installed woot
Image
Smoke detector installed incase crap goes down
Image
Installed lights, the picture may look dark, but the 2nd level is 9x brighter and awesome.
Image
HOLY BALLSACK CARPET
Image
Computer wootness
Image
I can sleep in here.
Image

Impressive!

Hope though that the neighbors don't complain - your lair is now visible over the fences...

Awesome man, I like it!

But, how structurally sound is your tower of power?

Who knows if the Namco Portable will ever become a reality? :P

Kyo is properly jealous. "Lulz! Hahahaha!" - That part made me chuckle. Overall, very nice and I am jealous of you for having such an awesomely cool lair. I guess I gotta build my own now to compete with you. Actually it's winter so this might not be the best time. DAMN YOU!

Completely awesome. I started thnking about how I could build my own while reading that, but then I realized I live in my own apartment.

That's cool, SS. You finally got your own place. I recommend not telling your parents, and start expanding downward. 8)
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Me too. That's why it's in my backyeard, so not a far walk to live in my own house. I mean, I COULD if I wanted too.

No windows(yet), and no concrete plans now. Each individual part was small enough to fit through the hatch(24x24) so I assembled it up there.

Thanks! It's very structurally sound, we went over this on MR.

Also discussed on MR! I live in South Carolina, so that's not an option. It's the same reason we don't have basements. :P

I guess it's a bit small, but if you heat it, it shouldn't be any worse than your room.
