We’ve got room for that

February 4, 2010

Where will it go?

We are moving from a house where everytime we considered adding something, like a piece of furniture, an appliance or a tool, we always have to ask “Where will this go?”. Ok, what that really means is that Tom finds a treasure and I say “What are you thinking? We don’t have room for that!”. Lack of space is no longer an issue.


We have discovered some terrific resources for used restaurant equipment and tools. They are similar to e-bay, but are focused on specific items. We are hoping to build our kitchen and workshop out of these kind of things, but mostly it has been fun to see all the weird contraptions that exist that we would never have seen.

Stainless Steel Thing

 Though we no longer have to worry about where something will fit, this is also providing us with opportunities for a different, yet similar conversation: “What are you thinking? We don’t need that!'” “Sure, we don’t need it but we have room for that.” Case in point, here are some of the interesting things we have considered.

Future Spaceship?

    I think we can ferment some grapes in that spaceship thing.

    I think a spare room for your favorite telecom guy would be a nice touch. What I bring to the table you ask? Voice-Data!

    If possible I would like a separate entrance, hardwood floors, an elevator, a disco ball, a stocked bar, a monkey butler, and a rock climbing gym. I have already packed up most of my belongings because I am certain this will be fine with the both of you. So what day this week would work best?

      I think we’ve got everything covered except for the monkey butler – but that sounds like a great idea!

    Hi from Sunny Florida!

    Mike got to read the blog today. He chuckled at some of the entries. He doesn’t “do computers”, so I’m taking a minute to let you know.

    I’ll keep up with this, I’m fascinated to watch the progress. Glad to hear you sold the house, hope you are able to make this place inhabitable soon!

    Wishing you both the best,

      Thanks! I’m sure we will be calling even more frequently for plumbing advice. (Ironically- our first comment is from my low-tech brother!)
