Fly fisherman gets caught!

Now we are back from our 6 week "holiday" (vacation) in the USA my fishy friends want to know why I didn't catch more.  Well, my darling wife volunteered to re-model the largest room in our son and daughter-in-law's house in Redmond, WA. Guess who provided the labour?  I am going to let the pictures speak for themselves!

 Six hundred and fifty square foot playroom before we started
 Complete with wood burning stove (for when the power lines are down)
Having scraped the "popcorn" off of the ceiling and sanded, the ceiling required three coats of paint!
The bookcase was brown and hiding in the basement!  It is wonderful what 3 coats of white paint can do!
Well I might not have caught any big fish but we did feel we had achieved something! Rug and suite courtesy of IKEA, USA.
