The medicine cabinet is 3.5" deep, the width of the 2x4 stud bay.

The lock is a master lock I picked up at Home Depot http://m.homedepot.com/p/Master-Lock...SEN/202260772/

Just wanted to share this month's update video and some pics:

February 2015 Update: http://youtu.be/fZlWUJpsuxI

And pics:


Vinyl Plank flooring


Shelves for books


Curtains my wife made


Note the new lighting


Got the TV/Computer installed


Did some countertops


Stained the couch and built a shelf over it.


Installed a stove (still needs to be plumbed in)


Built a hood fan out of an exhaust fan.


Starting to look much more like a home


My friend Amos installing a receiver tube in my front bumper for my city-bus style bike rack.


The drop we ended up having to build to keep the bikes out of the driver's line of sight.


The bike rack before we dropped it 11.5"

Nicely done.

Looks well built. Nothing will be coming apart on you.

Good job.

I actually bought the rack at an REI garage sale. It was absolutely worth the 60 I paid for it. I couldn't have bought materials for that much.
