Second coat of primer dried quickly, so I was ready to move the bench into the house. This required more muscle that I could muster myself, so I borrowed my neighbor’s two teenage sons to move the beast. At over 8’ it is not only ungainly, but very heavy. The boys were able to get the job done in less than 5 minutes without problem. The unit fit in the space under the window like a glove. It was even fairly level…which surprised me. A few small shims was all it took. I attached the unit to the brick wall with masonry screws and it’s extremely solid. This is what it looks like as of tonight.
I couldn’t resist filling it up right away. The Advent Big Speakers fit perfectly and I had enough space for my old Carver stereo equipment and CD player (which I hate to say, I bought in the ‘80s). Sounds better than I remembered. Anyway, I’m very pleased. I’ll trim it up tomorrow.
