I'd walk a lot further, but right now I'm fortunate to be a 1/2 mile from my work. So a 10 minute commute and the ability to go home on my lunch hour has been simply amazing for the last 2 years.

What started as a 365 photo blog (based off of my old sony cell phone) became a 5 year blogging project and a sincere photography hobby. 5 cameras later I'm still posting, although they are now usually larger posts with multiple photos rather than simply one a day.

The advent of Instagram has definitely made posting photos on a regular basis easier as well - and I'm happy to be able to incorporate a gallery of those snaps along with my more serious photos.

I think it would be easy enough to hang things on the walls without worrying about holes.
Putting book cases up could break up some of the monotony of the color as well.

I'd have fun with home entertainment equipment, speakers, tv, etc., if my walls were carpeted.

Something like these http://www.amazon.com/Wiremold-C210-White-Cordmate-Kit/dp/B00004W3ZQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1354040365&sr=8-2&keywords=cable+hiding could help route cables around the right-hand edge of your built-in. You might need some cable extensions in order to do it cleanly, but these kinds of moldings will probably be your best bet.

RIFFRAFFA - the big difference is that THEFORCE's projector is 180x brighter than the brookstone projector, and 135x brighter than the Optoma. The projectors listed here are too weak for any kind of outdoor viewing.

I agree that the projectors suggested are incredibly under powered for outdoor use. The optoma projector you listed has a native resolution of 854x480, meaning you won't get anything close to HD picture out of it, regardless of the screen size.

Like Snowlet said - the knots are held in place, counter-sunk inside the beam.

Drill through the beam with a smaller drill bit all the way through to string the rope through.
Then use a slightly bigger bit and drill about 1/3 of the way through on the bottom. Knot the rope and it will hide inside the beam.

I've found it best to keep my thermostat on at a mild temperature (62ยบ) during the evenings before I go to bed. My space heater in the bedroom keeps the room toasty without wasting the energy to heat the rest of the apartment at night. I'm projecting my bill to be not quite 1/2 of what it was last month by making this change.
I use a Lasko 6221 and it works pretty well for its size.

The Philips ambiled 60w replacement is perfect and cots $25 on sale at Home Depot. It's a bit finicky with my electronic dimmer, but on a regular switch it's been great. Definitely softer than any CFL I've used.

Agreed. Much better by city separately. Even if there are fewer items than previously, it's easier to look at when they're split up.

I had my replacement parts within a week of speaking to LM on the phone - they fit and everything is great.

CarrieL - if you went though amazon I would suggest using the A to Z claim to get your money back if you haven't already. That's the only reason I was willing to order from them given the polarizing reviews by "real people" (not counting Amazon & Ebay's positive feedback)
