      Some recent additions:

      Pool and Ping Pong in the Game Room (I hate the pool table, but it was free. It is impossible to level and is made out of particle board, the center of the playing surface is bowed, I've got it nearly perfect but it will never be perfect)



      Sweet "new" Panasonic Box Fan




      To keep the games going into the night



      And updated the workstation a bit, I have a new desk on its way so I won't have to use my dresser anymore

      Freakin' awesome place! Can't wait to see what you do with it. I've been looking for something like that for ages! No such luck.

      Ask and you shall receive. My new desk came in so I decided it was time to give myself a workspace that wasn't on top of my dresser.









      I'm definitely digging this new setup

      Wow. That is amazing. As it is now getting colder out, report back with what your heating bill is running.

      to you.

      Funny you mentioned old firehouses. That's what I was looking for when I came across this place!

      Bought the whole thing, it's a vintage fan from the 70s.

      Unfortunately not. I keep some of the cars at my parents, I get one spot at this place. I'm looking for a solution to this. I'll probably deal with it for a couple years then sell the place and build the house I have designed in my head.

      Tiny update. Got this sweet new desk lamp and space heater (the bedroom is ever so slightly insufficiently heated).







      Also hooked up a (free, bit of green bleed) projector for our upcoming Halloween party
