Bill,
Did I hear you ask me to mention the color taupe? Maybe some other color would at least sound better.
Art


Better sounding colors....   :thinking:




Burgandy


Gold


Chocolate




Worse sounding names:


Puce


Brindle


Guano




Maybe skip colors, and just have the walls chrome plated!

The last little panel is in and the painting begins. Wanted to get behind where the vanity is first and then the toilet, all done by brush. Tomorrow I will brush all the corners and around the floor and ceiling  and then use a roller for the rest. Then all that is left is the window, door, baseboard, and corner trim which I will prepaint. Getting close now!!

Thanks guys. It's certainly an improvement over what was here before. It was in pretty bad shape. I probably overdid it a bit, but it should outlast me now. I will be glad to get back to some machining soon.

That's going to look really nice Bill. Forget a "house warming" ...............are you going to have a "shop warming" when you're done?

Nice idea Jim, but I only know of one other model engine enthusiast in the area. I wish there were more.

You'll have to wander around with a camera to play into our VR goggles while we sip RC Cola's through a remote straw!

How about giving away free virtual casting sets  :thinking:, Jo and Sirus might even come then. Just have to do it earlier in the day before her bedtime :)

I guess I could cook up some pigís feet, white beans, and turnip greens on site. Given the time and materials, I could do some pork butts or maybe even a small whole hog. If youíll get me the name of the local Budweiser distributor, I can probably get a tap trailer brought over also  :stir: :stickpoke: :lolb:
