    Thanks JayJay!

    The house was originally built in the 1920s, I am working with my parents to restore it.

    Our new house.
    Built in early 1950's
    Large windows, marble floors, nice yard, good neighborhood.


    In the first picture (and the 4th) what's that little glass area in the wall between the two sitting areas?
    I like your place quite a bit, looks really nice!


    JB-- also a nice place. Sounds fun to restore a house!

    Yeah, sounds like fun but it's not until everything is done.

    LOL I could only imagine how hard it could be. I mean, you see all the drama that they go through on those house-flipping shows, and these guys are professionals. Doing it as an amateur must be extremely difficult, but equally rewarding, I would imagine.

    That is the gas fireplace. It has thermo glass in it.
    Extends out into the middle of the room, separates two main seating areas.

    Thanks for the kind words about the place, we like it.

    Kas, I have that same black-light poster rolled up somewhere waiting to be framed! I have a few others from a headshop that closed back in the mid 70's and my friend bought their stock.

    Looks like a pretty nice place, Kas.

    I see that the nicest, most organized area is the bar. My kinda guy!

    It's my altar. I used to have a sheep skin in front of it to meditate and pray to the boozegods.

    A leopard skin would be appropriately decadent.

    I don't want any beef with PETA for sacrificing leopards.
    This is a part of the house as seen from the front.
