    Hi all,

    Im in the planning stages of building a floating wall using Jonna's Awesome Method.

    This is no longer an "idea" and plus im in the middle of doing my living room up :) - currently stripped it all out!

    I have a few obstacles, which I need advice on:

    1. Will Jonna’s method work?
    2. What shall I do about the Water Pipe – In case of a burst pipe etc. (its going up to the bathroom)
    3. Coving – need to be removed?
    4. Sockets – I only have one double socket, can I use extenders (4 way etc)?

    Can one else see any potential issues or requirements??

    I don’t have any fancy editing program on this laptop, so I’ve edited the picture with what it may look like – Is that feasible?

    Material:
    • MDF
    • Plasterboard
    • What size timber should I use for the studs?
    • What type/size screws are required to fix timber to wall?
    • Plasterboard screws
    • 1 bag Finishing Plaster (for patching some of the ceiling where the coving has come off and the plasterboard itself)

    Devices
    • V+ Box
    • PS3
    • Wii
    • PC
    • A cheap amp with Wifi and DAB/Internet Radio/HDMI (any recommendations)
    • Surround Sound (possibly) (it only a 5x 3 room)
