Reptile Room Build

It’s probably going to be a fingerprint combined with a 30 digit code :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Hopefully one more sandpaper pass and I’ll be ready for stain, countertops are supposed to come Tuesday. Got the hose reel mounted. Need to install the hot water tank until I can try it out. Ordered a shorter hose so I don’t have the wad of hose between the spigot and reel.

Interesting chain of events, so finished up the prep work last night. The kids and I ran to Lowes to get stain this morning. I start looking and say well looks like they don’t have cedar, what else can we get? Well I found a cherry wood stain that looked like it would be nice. Well in that time apparently the girls found a white wash stain and we’re very insistent on getting it. Atleast we could compromise and got white wash stain.

So my first time doing a white wash. Don’t know if I’m really digging it too much, I want to see it with countertops but shouldnt be hard to redo if it really bothers me. However I’m starting to look at it differently, if wood was hypo what do you think it would look like? I think it would look like this:

Color difference:

So hopefully the countertop show up Tuesday, light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter.

Hypo wood :joy: that’s amazing. It looks interesting, personally I prefer wood color over white washed but I have seen people incorporate it in cool ways.

By trying to keep thing lighter, you will get a much cleaner feel. In my honest opinion, the whitewash will probably look really good with the dark blue floor.

Yup, that’s Leo. He gets involved with everything I’m doing whether I like it or not. When I have the kids the garage is quite busy some days lol.

Okay, you’ve definitely got me over here being jealous (of the rebuild, not the original flood). I can only dream of, and plan for, a reptile room.

I truly hope that this post serves the purpose you intend it to. You’re on a good track. Go slow to go fast. :wink:

Cheers,
Erik

Turned the temps up last night in the current room, this morning took the heater and thermostat and installed it in the new room. Now I gotta move em this weekend, no excuses. Room isn’t done, but done enough to be functional. Naturally I now have to work this weekend because that’s life lol. Going to busy the next couple days.
