    Very nice job!:smashin:What if you have problems with screen? Do you have to rip it all down?
    I am thinking of doing something like that but with maybe a removable panel on bottom.:)

    Well if I still lived there then yes the bottom would have to come off, but in all fairness it wouldn't take much to put it back up and re-skim. A detachable bottom probably would've made more sense but it would mean another lot of visible joins.

    Spoke to the guy who bought the place off me a couple of weeks ago and he was still gushing about watching the olympics on it.
