Nice that there's a AmEx black snuggled in that case. Just cause.

If you think that a computer takes the place of all this, then I think you might not get it.

Just to begin with, most of the knowledge and text in these books has not been digitized. There's just no other way to have access to this stuff other than to open the book.

And then there's the issue of the book being more than the sum of its parts. The size, dimension, font, margins, gutter, and a million other factors impact the reader's interaction with the text. This is why book design matters, and as of now, there's no way to duplicate that on a computer.

Nevermind the impact of these spaces as both architectural works and as public archives.

I use an old San Pelligrino glass bottle for my Olive Oil- the green glass helps protect the oil, and it looks like on the counter. Plus I buy Olive Oil in huge tubs, so it's way easier to pour.
Never thought of doing it with soap, though...

Gross. Always gross. Can't deal with scented candles at all.

I'll put in a second on wanting to know where the drawers came from. Please?

Oh, and the chair's ugly.

My basics include:
14" All-Clad stainless fry pan
7" Non-stick Restaurant grade pan
5.5 qt La Crueset Dutch Oven
14" Calphalon Wok
Large (8qt?) Stainless 3 Ply Stock Pot

After that:
2.5 Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven
4 qt Stainless Pot
12" Calphalon Aluminum Fry Pan

I've chosen to go with quality over quantity- and given my tiny house, this collection is pretty well saturated, and frankly, there's not much else I find myself needing.

Good Luck.

Please, please, please. Compare prices for Apple laptops to identically equipped peecee's and you'll find very, very little price gap. It's only when you compare unlike that the price gap seems huge. This is an old myth, disproved many times.

ChrisGal-
Why is it so hard for you to accept that they WANT all their bikes? You've posted here more than anyone else, and you seem to be taking this personally.

Also, the OP was about how to store the bikes, not how to downsize. They appear to have no interest in downsizing.

Yeah- It's easy for someone who thinks a bike costs $200 to talk about downsizing. But the OP is a cyclist, and let me assure you- each one of those 14 is like a baby to them.

Way back when I live with my folks, out collection hit about 17- and they ALL got ridden often.

I'm at 6 on my own now. I built a rack given the lack of height in my setup- but you can get those rubber coated hooks (find them at HomeDepot, for example) and put one on every stud (16"). Alternate handlebars up and down, and they'll fit. You have to just accept how it's going to look...

For $1000 or so, I'm not sure it's possible to do much better than this.

Now I wish (once again...) I had tall ceilings....

I would love to be able to read the first paragraph of this post and have it makes sense.

Turntables look nice, though...

Regarding mounting the knife rack on the fridge-

Why *can't* you just screw it in? Isn't the wall there just full of insulation?

As a dj, it's nice to hear people talk about leaving this stuff out. Where you live is supposed to represent who you are, and hiding something like this away would be a shame. Over the last couple of years, there have been a LOT of posts on here about dj spaces- the general idea of which is that the best you can do is to embrace and make it look nice. Get a decent table. Build in some storage for 12's. Ikea, strangely enough, seems to be the spot for this.
His decks are in road cases, so I'm going to make the assumption that he hauls them around a bit- in which case, a table is better than a build in console for ease of breakdown.
My $0.02.

Alton Brown offered up a variation on this:

Oh. My. God.

I thought fried chicken on a waffle was good- IMHO, it's got nothing on this.

100" screen, not 100 Foot. Or those speakers are frickin' huge.

While I like the idea of a built in USB hub, I find the first picture odd-

Well there you go. But I'm just some guy on the web... and the author has been (I assume?) paid for the content of the page. Me, as an editor, I'd be pissed.

I spell checked this time- proud of me?
