Closet, bathroom, and bedroom

Bruce delivered the major pieces of my closet drawers and shelves today! Hooray, storage! We use the same CNC web-based box builder as before -- "Top Drawer Components" -- just love the results from them. Every box is dove-tailed, perfectly square, and already polyed at very reasonable prices. For the drawers I'll eventually put on drawer plates that will hide the slider hardware.

For some bathroom storage we ordered two different sizes of box and screwed them together for this nice effect. (There's several more bathroom fixtures yet to be installed.)

Meanwhile, last week we started on the "tree" element that spans out between then bathroom and the the bedroom. There's a lot more pieces to add to this, but all the heavy stuff is done.

Fountain pumps

It's taken years to get around to, but the fountain by my back door finally pumps water. Still lots of details to clean up -- hiding the plumbing and finishing the brickwork, but progress nevertheless!

Meanwhile, I've commissioned a bas-relief sculpture of the nerd-martyrdom of Hypatia from my friend Holly Melear that will go on the top back along the wall.
