REDBEARD - thanks!! yeah those boards are amazing. I'd like to get a bunch more of them and do that whole wall. When I went to get the board you see there (which was originally twice as big and weighed about 100 pounds), the dude in the shop dropped it on my big toe. As my face contorted into a horrible silent scream, he goes "that's why you don't wear flip flops in the shop!" Alas, that s.o.b. was right. (Mike -- thanks again for all those pieces!)

LYONSTILL -- Since the place is located in LA, there are only a few weeks a year where it really gets super cold at night and space heater is needed to warm it up. Patching up all the cracks in the wooden siding did a lot to keep the heat from the day inside, and the ceiling fan also does wonders drawing the heat down from the peak.

CHESTERANDTRUDY -- the giant curtain over the doors is a blown up digital print on canvas that was used for a photo exhibition at the Getty museum in LA. When the exhibition was closing they were going to throw it away, so I just asked...
I had it for years before moving into this place & realizing it would fit perfectly as a curtain, as long as Trudy (that's her name) didn't mind standing horizontally from now on.

Bruintoo - it still is a garage, there's nothing in it that needs to be permitted. The only thing needed for "reconversion" is moving all the stuff out of it.
