Plans call for deep pile carpeting, walnut wainscoating, and built in bookshelves lining two walls. I'm donating 2 oxblood leather wingback chairs, and a spare humidor.

lordie, have you ever in your life heard of contractors biting at the bit, ready to start work, even before all of the money arrangements have been finalized? all i can think of is, it must be those two magical words: 'cousin' and 'bubba'--either this cousin bubba, he needs work real bad to pay off his xmas credit card charges, or ol' .40's got somethin' on him, know what i mean? either way, i'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, myself. and thank the lord for our dc wizards like .40 who starts the ball rolling, and moves to get things done. just 'get 'er done'. course, you notice how he snuck that humidor in there, trying to slide by with his talk of plush carpeting, built-ins, wainscoting and such? you don't suppose he was merely referring to it as a decorative item....:)

oh lord, if this project is ever completed anything like what .40 is describing, well, i won't ever be wanting to leave this place, know what i'm sayin'? i may never want to go home....:)

thanks for 'thunk', alix--she is a vintage beauty, and just perfect for us! and, look, she toasted my bagel thins like a charm! i've never had a toaster oven myself, but i can see many versatile possibilities and uses for 'thunk' here. i agree that it's a better choice for out coffee room than a microwave....

the latest issue of food and wine, has a brief feature on chemex (the coffee thingy)--and it proposes 206 deg. to be the ideal temp. for brewing coffee--the approximate temp. of boiled water after sitting for one minute....

I may have failed to mention that cousin Bubba loves BBQ. That's about all it takes to get him interested. I traded a 1947 Ford tractor for the materials.

As far as the humidor goes. Let's just say I had an extra at home after Christmas.

By the way, I threw in an old box-blade with the tractor. Bubba says YES to the deck and hot tub out back.

SWEEEEEET! I'm pretty sure we have a bunch of extra cedar planks and lattice after our deck construction. I'll grab it for Bubba.

I'm planting my rear in this leatherchair and not moving until I'm done hibernating...

Do you know that just about everything that hibernates wakes up with a three day hangover?

Might be worth it for a female bear. They go through labour asleep and don't have to look at their babies until they are cute.

And they don't have to shave their legs. Dang, I have to get up to grab another biscuit and tea.
