      Great House! 1st order of business should be to install a urinal in the garage. Only THEN will be officially be a man cave!

      You could use the much less expensive "redneck solution". Simply drill a hole in the wall, insert hose and attach funnel.

      No, I'm not doing that either.

      C'mon man - this is the 21st century! Men deserve more than the thorny old shrub out back or a coffee can with a rusty rim. Plus, you're in Norway - you wouldn't want anything to freeze off during a nature-call in January, right?

      Congrats on the car, and more importantly the house! It looks awesome.

      I really need to make it over to the motherland someday soon (75% Norwegian).

      Thanks, we recently got copies of the original drawings from 1917 - fascinating to see how it was originally penned as a two family home.

      Well, in a lot of places you can pay even more for a small pile of concrete and BS laminate floors... The grass isn't always greener.

      thats true. but considering how much i paid for my house here in states i would have good size mansion in Europe. and taxes are crazy
      sure You cant compare apples to oranges every market is different, but cant go wrong with early 1900 European architecture and 10' ceilings.
      I was raised in center of Warsaw/Poland in 1900's "townhouse", interior walls were 6" thick and it was partially destroyed in 1940's. It had that great filling and smell that i will never forget.

      I am still waiting to see the "Man Cave". We saw the house, the kitchen and your new car.

      Need pictures of the inside of the garage to be a true "Man Cave" Thread.

      That's a really nice house, and a 60 mile commute is fine if it's only gonna take you an hour. That's a 20 mile commute (or less!) where I live.

      That trailer is way too big for your dog.

      The nice thing is, in the winter, you can flood the garage and make an impromptu ice-skating ring!
