Sneak Peek

Stairs leading down to the front door. And to one of the countless piles of unpacked crap, there to the right of the door. That's a hand-painted mobile of the solar system, on top of the box.

Dig that groovy colored tile at the base of the stairs.

Living room. Yes, those curtains are pretty gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

And the wooden fireplace mantle and frame is deeply, deeply cool.

A handful of wooden doodads that will eventually be added to the fireplace around the mirror as detail.

Detail from one of the doors.

More detail from one of the doors. This is a metal panel laid into the wood, about where your hand lands when you push the door open. Which I assume is the purpose. There are lots of these about the house.

We are all moved in. Exhausted, and a little overwhelmed. But we did it.

Back to work.

Wow. My only-20-year-old house sucks compared to that. ;-)

It's a very beautiful house everyone.

Let me know when I can come back and rip out the old carpet. Heh.

Yes, I'm hooked on Wii now; thanks you dirty pusher. ;-) I WILL kick your ass at tennis. I will! I WILL!

Oh gads, that's a gorgeous place! (except the curtains maybe =)

Welcome home Clowncar

Thanks everyone. The place is a little rough around the edges. And I did wrestle with a neurotic bit of buyer's regret for a few days. But as furniture and belongings slowly find their places, it is beginning to feel more and more like home.
