Room 11 is downstairs, close to the guest fridge, fresh cookies and the front door.

This chair fits into the corner quite nicely.

In case you come to Austin to work, all of our rooms have a desk in them. They also have phones, adequate lighting, etc. We also provide wireless internet access and an adapter for folks who have a laptop but no wireless.

The bathroom is pretty hard to get good photos of, but I really wanted to show off the fruits of my labor over the last two weeks in mid-to-late August, 2005.

The old linoleum floor was torn pretty badly in one place, so I decided to replace it with ceramic tile. The floor required a bit of leveling, and I had to fill in a hole in the wood that was the source of the tear.

Additionally, The bathtub had been installed backwards originally, so I wanted to turn it around. This meant I had to replumb the drain as well as the water feeds. It was two days under the house. This picture is a good shot of the correctly oriented tub.

We wanted to add some color to the floor, so I randomly cut out squares in the tile sheets and replaced them with cobalt blue tiles.

This is also a really good shot at one of the old tubs in this house.
