Altbau means old building. Generally it means a building was built before 1948. A funny description I found: Architects consider Altbau houses any building that causes many problems updating and always cost more than you think.

Wow so many negative comments. Has anybody considered that this condo actually belongs to the parents of Ann and so the in-laws of Dabney? And like Dabney says in a previous post: "I definitely have a harder edge to my aesthetic, but I'm *trying* to temper my vintage industrial modern ways in favor of something softer. I want the in-laws to feel comfortable, without sacrificing my desire to do something fun. This is a difficult balance."

We have two 13 year old boys share a well tiny room. We have bunk beds now. Very similar to the one in picture 8. We have one big problem. The squeaking! Especially from the top bed. We now have to let one of the boys sleep on the ground (on a mattress of course!). Anybody have any ideas on how to solve this problem? Maybe some bunk beds are better than others? Maybe the Ikea ones?

Love it! Amazing how while painting cabinets a bold black the kitchen still looks so country and cosy. And for under $500! That inspires me to do something about my own drab kitchen.
