Coolest thing I found "inside the wall" was doin' some plumbing and electrical for a buddy... he bought this "distressed' property real right.

Master bedroom had a bathroom with commode and lav. He was initially going to just put in new Homer Depot lav cabinet as old one looked sorry...

Seems some ingenious sort had completely drywalled off the doorway into a full 6X8 or so walk in shower... In the bottom of the lav cabinet, i found the "hidden" door into a nice pot grow room. It still had several HPS light units, Co2 tanks irrigation system for the hydro system and dead half grown crop...

We laughed our butts off at the whole "enterprise"...

we figure he lost the house sitting in jail or something...

Common slang word for window air condting unit the reason why we call them window shake due if the fan[s] are not balanced it will shake the window pretty good and the name is stuck for many years and it pretty much international term anyway.

this what we call in France

"Shaker de fenętre "

Merci.
