|Farm 30 in Olivebridge NY, just south of the Ashokan Reservoir.|
|Living room with a bank of windows looking at High Mountain.|
From the kitchen.
|Basement Wet Bar. The basement's got some mojo, with the wet bar with salvaged wood, the wine closet, the retractable TV screen, the bookshelves, bedroom and bathroom.|
|We used a new cable rail, steel post, open tread system. Pretty hot.|
|Really nice color, 4 panel doors, early american stain, simple light fixture.|
|Dual sink, walk in shower and complimentry light fixtures.|
|Walk out basement, salvaged half wall, built ins and a movie screen up there somewhere.|
|Homeowner mid-winter design meeting.|
|Where it all began.|

I remembered my overly cologned moustached 7th grade teacher teaching us how to remember how to spell Assassination.
It takes two asses to kill the number 1 man in the nation. The fact that he used the word ass in class was borderline scandalous. He's also the guy who taught us to remember dessert vs desert by remembering that you always want 2 desserts.
I'm a big history fan. And a Big History fan. And a big Civil War buff. It's a little overdone and passe to be lincoln fan now, but I've been a fan for years and never have had a spec home furnished without hanging a good luck abe lincoln print.
The Times has been doing a once or twice weekly blog about the civil war for 5 years now, since it's the 150 anniversary of the attempted disunion of these United States.
Tomorrow is the 150 anniversary of Lincoln's assassination. The war ended a few days ago, 150 years back.
