Lol, sorry I'm using the mobile version of the site so I no longer see any of those details. It's a reference to American Pyscho.

Of course it is, and I think it's a coop building, no?

Sorry to bark at you, I didn't know what you were driving at originally. Not sure the story behind the building in the book, I don't think it is a real place however.

No worries; pretty sure it's not a real building, but thought the movie made it seems like it was a coop building. Funny how you forgot about your original location; guess you have been around here too long.

It is not a bad idea, but I have a cellar in the basement that is climate controlled.

One can never have too much wine storage. It would also save many trips up and down the stairs when one has finished the bottles already picked and desires more. This idea could save your life.

I think the long console idea is best, with artwork/photos above.

Another fun option might be a Japanese kitchen tansu, which are often built narrowly, and might be good for storage. A step tansu could also be fun, but I'm not sure if they're cliché at this point.

A new shot of my place. Professional photo. Not such a good job with the 'shopping of the grass in the front.

Can you get slip covers for a tansu?

Looks good douglas! Was that the pillar that came down last year?

Yes, they make them in selvedge denim. If you work them on right they get sweet fadez over the drawer pulls.

That's not the post that came down - they actually wanted to take a shot of the full house, or the other side of the house (to the right of what's pictured) but couldn't at that time because the pillar had fallen.

I recently found a few Amish guys who put it back up for about $100. It still needs to be looked at but that was a steal to get it back up.

There was actually one pillar that was separated from the house some years back and was sold at auction. In one of the coolest Christmas gifts of all time, my Dad tracked it down and bought it back and gave it to us for Xmas. The only problem is that the sucker is 12 feet tall and it's too soft a wood (poplar) to really go back outside again. It's been damaged quite a bit over the years. And there are only 2 possible places in the house to put something that big, and one of them is the bedroom, and my wife refuses to put a giant Jesus (the sculpture is Christ touching Lazarus to life) in the bedroom. The other spot, in the living room, is highly problematic.
