You can just put questions regarding the challenges inside your challenge thread.

A grate is easy, Id make a large flat poly cube, then a smaller poly cube for the hole size. Then duplicate with transform options set to get the smaller cube marking out each hole. Them just boolean subtract them from the larger cube. The result being a large flat cube, with loads of holes in it.
