Thought I'd just start a new post instead of adding to the previous one.
Believe it or not, this is about half the stuff that was in there. A lot of it was moved downstairs and unpacked before this was taken. It looked like a warehouse before!
The other side is much better. The semi-portable 9' tower is on its side here, under a large piece of left over carpet, and behind the Samsung box. I have the wood for the new feet, so as soon as I get this outside I'll screw the new wood feet on, and lug it into the backyard through our nice, new gate. The spoiler/sunshade for the Supra is off to the left behind a bunch of cardboard waiting to go to the recycling center.
Don't get me started on Fort Collins' "Recycling Program"........nice little racket you guys have going there......
And moving down to the subterranean levels........
We have a bookcase full of (mostly) BOOKS!
This is the wall the workbench/storage shelves will be going into after I repair the non-functional baseboard heater. I wasn't able to even get to the heater before, as the moving guys had stacked boxes three high and two deep right up to it. The thermostat for the heater is to the extreme left in the picture above, a box with a knob slightly out of focus.
The new rack I received and assembled the other day is all the way in the corner, and the less deep rack is the one I brought from Kalifornia. I still have to get some 1/16" plywood to make "shelves for the shelves", like in the 18" deep rack next to it. Otherwise, all the feet on the equipment gets hung up on the wires the shelves are made of, and nothing sits level, or is easy to slide in and out of the rack.
There *should* be another shelf at the top of the leftmost rack, BUT...as careful as we were taking the rack apart, and bagging all the little split-lock plastic shells that the shelves pilot down onto, we somehow lost exactly eight pieces, enough for one shelf. The new rack came with contact information to get replacement parts, so I'm probably going to buy a few extra of these!
Some of this equipment will be installed in the station console (the Hallicrafters and Drake gear) to be my two "Boat Anchor" stations.
And I somehow managed to spill over into the "Study Area" of the basement suite.
And then on into the "Downstairs Bedroom" area.
But not to worry....the door on the left in the picture of the "Study Area" leads to a very large storage area.
Looking left into to it:
Looking straight into it:
And looking into it to the right:
I haven't measured this little "bonus space" yet to see how big it is, but it sure is handy!
We didn't get out to get the tree today because she had conflicting errands and appointments, so sorry, no pretty tree pix today.
