Is this a loft in the Sistene Chapel or an attic bedroom in a Cadillac, Michigan home?  Justin Bieber poster.  You heard about his recent visit on the Letterman Show? (a talk show).  He referred to the Sistene Chapel as the Sixteenth Chapel.  He’s Canadian, you know  😉

Old School Furniture Placement

June 26th, 2012 · 3 Comments

The old rule of thumb was to place all of your furniture against walls.  Here’s a good example from Tempe, Arizona.

Home decorators nowadays suggest floating furniture away from walls to make a room feel bigger.  It also makes it hard for guests to talk to each other without shouting when all the seating is so far away.

Extra Half Bathroom

June 25th, 2012 · 7 Comments

Adding an extra bathroom to your home can add value.  Except when it’s done by amateurs and installed in a garage!  Yep, in the garage.  It also has a door lock as if anyone would walk in on him/her.  Is there a water supply, is there proper drainage, is there a vent stack, is there ventilation, is there lighting, was a building permit obtained?
