    Here's a few old ones, - the furniture etc. varies a bit, as the pics were originally taken for room-to-let ads at various times. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    In June 2006 I bought a home on the waterfront. Unfortunately the former owner hasn't been there in four years time so it was completely run down.

    At this moment i'm renovating it and at the same time adding some space. Basically, everything is going to be removed. All the plumbing, wiring, etc. etc. the roof is going to be replaced. Basically, a few walls will be re used and that's it.

    The lighting is going to be controlled by a Lutron Homeworks series 8 system, I bought a Poggen Pohl Integration kitchen, the floors will be Belgian Hardstone with heating.

    It's going to be a three bedroom and 2,5 bath home including a basement and an office. Since I'm alone, no wife and kids, I will convert one of the bedrooms in a gameroom with a poker table and housebar. I'm also installing a home theatre in a separate room incl. a Full HD Beamer and a full THX Ultra 2 sound system.

    The look from my yard:

    This is how it looks from the street at the moment:

    This is how it should look from the street when it's done:

    Heh...sadly, it's autographed on the back, so it's not visible. The lamps are Ikea (wall-mounted), but as Ikea stuff goes, not badly made. If you can be bothered to call in an electrician, he'll probably be able to serial-mount them, so you won't have to have that many cables hanging around.

    Here's the painting close up. If anyone can tell me anything about it, that would be cool

    A friend of mine has the odd hobby of finding Asianworks of art like that and translating them. How does anyone find a hobby like that anyway?

    That painting seems to have water damage.

    Yes, it does. From sitting in a damp basement, sadly. [​IMG]
