Memory Day: Snapshots

Here are a few snapshots of my house from August 2004, and the same angles today. Although I had moved in during the month of February, the entire first year was spent with minimal furniture, as I wanted to do many of the home improvement tasks that would normally require moving heavy furniture first as lazily as possible. The house probably didn't look lived in until the Fall.

Jim Barry dubbed this massive desk the "American Dream Desk", because it had space and cubbyholes for pretty much everything. Today, it is one Mineral VA earthquake away from collapsing, after many years of being dragged between rooms (depending on which room I wanted to be the office in any given year). The cabinets are full to the brim, and the musical keyboard has lost one octave, so I don't write as many high notes.

The original basement was subdivided into a warren of dwellings, and the pciture on the left was taken during my work to convert a bookshelf into a "bar". I mounted two wall lamps in the wood, flipped the shelves to face into the smaller area, and bought a pool table (and pool table light) off the Internet.

I still don't see the "purple" in the paint on the walls. The billiard clock was given to me by Evil Mike at my housewarming in 2004, and stopped working around 2007.
