Ghostbusters Tiny House

Ghostbusters Tiny House Firehouse by Dave Delisle

If you watch any of those DIY/home renovation channels on TV you might be aware of the latest home craze, tiny houses. These are small mobile homes which can be trucked anywhere with ease. I will now ruin this trend by making it geeky, starting with a design based on the Ghostbusters Firehouse. Read the rest of this entry

Pro Sports Locker Hall Tree

Sports Locker Hall Tree by Dave Delisle

A Hall Tree is a coat rack combined with a storage bench that is parked by the front door or in a mud room; here are some examples. I feel these Hall Trees could be made to look like player lockers from the pro leagues (NHL, NBA, NFL, etc.). The above design is based on the actual lockers belonging to the Calgary Flames, but you could do this with any pro team. Read the rest of this entry

This Is Fine Fireplace Grate

Originally I planned to embed the “This Is Fine” dog in a fireplace screen, but then I felt it would be better if he appeared amidst the fire itself, so I placed him atop a fireplace grate (the thing that cradles logs). Read the rest of this entry

Mad Max Fury Road Shower Cabinet

Mad Max shower cabinet by Dave Delisle

So yeah, a shower cabinet based on the Citadel water scene from Mad Max: Fury Road. It’s your standard shower cabinet but with fancy tiling, 3 water nozzles, and a couple of hydraulic levers to operate the water. Read the rest of this entry

Ghostbusters Electrical Panel Cover

Ghostbusters Electrical Panel Cover by Dave's Geeky Ideas

Seeing as the Ecto Containment Unit is a wall-mounted hub where many wires originate, I figured it would be a fun way to conceal electrical panels found in households (more so if the panel is in the basement). Your circuit breakers would now reside in a ghost prison.

Instead of creating an electrical panel shaped like the Ecto Containment Unit, I felt a separate cover that sits atop an existing electrical panel would be easier and cheaper to install. The design is modular so it can safely bypass all the wiring. Read the rest of this entry

Transformers Bunk Bed

Transformers Ultra Magnus bunk bed by davesgeekyideas

Another bunk bed design, this one based on interim Autobot leader Ultra Magnus. His car carrier/transport alt-mode is ideal for a bunk bed configuration, with the truck cab being used for storage.

If you want to take this idea even further, you could park a few car beds on it (both given an Autobot makeover of course), but that would require an even bigger Ultra Magnus.

Side note: here is a cool Optimus Prime bunk bed that was made for a couple of lucky rugrats.

Ghostbusters Optical Fiber Lamp

Here’s a Ghostbusters lamp that is illuminated by optical fiber, similar to this. If I ever did a gallery show (ha!), this would be one of my fancy pieces.
