Thanks guys,

we just sort of  go with what comes our way and how we fell about it.

those retro yellow vinyl commercial floor tiles are no longer available, we just stumbled onto them at a bargain
and took the risk, we love the fact that they are not so serious and sombre as tiles and brighten up the  lower level.

You can see the machine I used to clean and buff them then sealed  them, very low maintenance now.

still working on upstairs, no kitchen yet, still living with an electric fry pan and crock pot,

but have Coffee station...

And a very fine coffee station, it is too.
Our C-man is quite modest. What the photos don't do justice to; is the very open Gallery/ living area that is more like walking into, well an Art Gallery, I suppose.
That is also a suspended slab (concrete ceiling/floor above)- so you could have a party upstairs and enjoy the serenity downstairs...
It would be a truly lovely place to call home...

still no kitchen, you can see the pipes in the floor where the island will be

My wife Mila is the designer/decorator

anyone with a fat checkbook can do that

What impresses me is everything was scrounged on the cheap, many things collected over the past year some needing repairs ect.
She has the vision to put all things together piece by piece scoring things as they come.

All I can do is build what she wants.

Wow.  Amazing transformation from when I was there last.  You've really pushed this along!  Great job!

I'll be around for a coffee next week, get those burrs seasoned!  :P
