Welcome to the Barley Room…

Monopoly has the monopoly on the pub table…

Note the trim/threshold between carpet and tile…

And get rid of that TV!

OK, the new TV won’t be that big…

We are currently furniture shopping and have already bought one new piece. The TV and new credenza will also be coming sooner, rather than later, because my wife can’t wait for the new flat screen TV. (no really, she’s pushing me to just buy something!) There are other components that will also eventually be coming, like the HTPC (Home Theater PC). Last, but not least, there is the next home improvment project which I hope to break ground on in the spring of 2008.

I will post more pictures along the way!

  2. Hooray !! You did a great job…… both of you.
    the ceiling is awesome and the fact that you had to learn so many different kinds of skills is incredible. I really like the woodwork too.
