Both Nadine and I like to spend a lot of time on
the computer, so we put three offices into this house.
This is Nadine's office, which is upstairs in what used to
be a formal dining room. Nadine likes antique ruby colored
glass, and is starting a small collection here.
Here is her computer center. This is where she has
wracked up over 350 positive feedbacks on ebay, and makes
sure the American economy keeps on humming.
Being a geek, I have to comment on the computer
system I installed in this house. We have cat6 ethernet
almost everywhere, along with a linksys 5.6Mbps wireless
network that covers the whole house. Nadine is connected
to our main computer (which lives downstairs) via a 100MB
ethernet link. Her computer is really just a thin client
that runs X. It is totally silent, consuming only 40
watts. Because she is a relative computer novice, I have
her running VNC so that I can take over her screen
remotely and help her out when she needs it.
Another big remodelling job we did before we moved
in is replace all of the white kitchen counter tile with
granite. We also replaced the floor in the kitchen. Here
is the result. Even though Nadine doesn't cook, (she
Bar-B-Ques), (or burns), she doesn't mind hanging out in
Here is what the chef, (if we had one) would see
while in the kitchen working. The only reliable kitchen
resident is the coffee fairy, who makes sure Nadine's
coffee is ready for her before she wakes up each
