Today’s Top 5


I'll bet all that knotty pine and/or cedar positively glowed when the window shades were up. That wiring was safe enough when it was brand new, given a few years of wear and tear, somewhat less so.


I wonder who put those horns up on the rafters top left. There is nothing else attached to the rafters anywhere. Just the solitary horns.

Look at all those chairs!

Do you think they came from the Grand Rapids Chair Company?

Rustic to a Fault

The bare light bulbs hanging down from the ceiling along with the split beams and supports. Only thing missing is peanut shells on the floor.

Into the Woods

Wood floors, wood beams, wood ceilings, wood walls, wood doors, even wood tables and wood chairs. Does anyone want to lay odds on how long before the whole place burns to ashes?

Elegant Dining

Would really like to have a meal here. Imagine of the ambiance.

Health and Safety

Don't you love that wiring? Health and Safety would have a field day with wires strung across a wooden ceiling and tapped into for every light.
