Well its been a while since I have reported on my project . This last couple of months my wife and I have tiled the floor, painted and made a desk out of colums from the pottery store. We went for a Atlantis type theme, check it out!

That is simply amazing. Wouldn't it be nice for all of us to one day have something of that caliber?
Well, many congrats to you and your wife on a wonderful job.
