    Pretty nice Library

    They are just completing a home here in Northern Ky and it was open last weekend for tours here is a a shot of the library. The builder said that there over 20,000 cuts in the room, and 22 sandings and 22 coats of lacquer totaling thirty gallons. Could not get it all in one shot .Click image for larger version.

    That would work..

    Man I can't even imagine how long just the baluster railing took much less the rest of it. All those nooks and crannies to finish! Its kinda like something you'd seen in an old robber barons house!

    Ryan they have been building this house for almost two years. It's four bedroom's, 9 baths and a little over 60,000 sq.ft. The bar area is about the size of our first floor.

    1.4 acres Just think how many person hours per week would need to be spent cleaning something like that - boggles my mind! I don't even like mowing that much lawn

    Sure is a lot of fun to look at places like this but I couldn't see living in one. Personally I'd be happy with just the library.. and a detached shop

    You could probably buy a nice 6,000 sq ft house for the price of that library!

    Incredible. I can't even imagine it. Beautiful work.
    That would hold every National Geographic ever printed.
