My mother in law moved out of my living room and I saw the opportunity to reclaim my TV room.

I decided to build/make a wire free mountable wall unit for my TV and Hi-Fi with all other electrical equipment that is normally standing on a wall unit. My idea was to build/make something where you don’t see any electrical wiring or cables.

For me to achieve that, I had to cut into the wall with a grinder and put all cabling inside a PVC pipe in the wall itself and plaster over it to close the wall again. I also had to install a new power box socket to power all equipment that I wanted on the wire free wall unit… I got some old pallets from a friend and started to build the frame. I made use of whatever material I had laying around at home to limed any expense as far as possible.
