Hmm.  Good to know. THanks.  Maybe mine got burried.  Are you just using the regular sales@ account?
Hey guys, is bootsonline still the best source for US customers?  I want to buy a pair for my wife and I emailed them a couple weeks ago, but they haven't replied. 
Luxire, A.  Btw, let me know when you're in town.  I still need to make up for missing you last time. I need to take a picture of that jacket again.  The collar, lapels, and sleeveheads were reworked since those pics.  I still usually wear the collar and lapels up though, since I primarily use the jacket as outerwear.  I might be going to Pitti in Jan.  If so, maybe I'll wear it w/ some black jeans and boots and hang out w/ Fok and other SW guys.

I'd probably prefer larger windows, but I'm guessing you went with that size for energy efficiency.   And thanks for the advice earlier about the door handles/knobs everyone.  We went with levers partly due to accessibility, although I have no idea if they're required by ADA.  
The door levers for the upstairs rooms arrived    Currently the knobs are a mishmash of really cheap stuff.  But there were two glass knobs that were probably original to the house.   We'll be using them on the main floor for two doors off the entrace hallway.
Yep, the contractor said it's copper to minimize the amount that the studs get cut.  I asked if there were going to reinforce the studs, maybe with one turned sideways in the corner, but he said there was no need.  There isn't a room above this room, so hopefully he's right.  Glad you like the work.  The plumber's from the East Bay. Would the trap help prevent waste from the toilet from bubbling up out of the floor drain?  After posting, I searched "wavy lines, vent...
