Looks good, does it feel like it's taking forever to get done? 

Nice call in the 4 car garage... I used to park 2 cars in a 2 car garage, then filled one bay, then the other.. I now have a 3 car garage, had "stuff" in one bay and cars in the others... and now the cars are back in the driveway.  :)

Raw Power!

Thats gonna be one sweet house! The metal roof is unique. What made you decide on that versus a shingle roof? Less maintenance?

Metal roofs are better from every aspect except price ($$$).  They last forever and are much more wind resistant than shingles.  They also reflect a lot of the heat and they don't store heat as much as asphalt does.  They are also less susceptible to leaks.  Plus they look great.  And before you ask, they are no louder in the rain than a regular roof.

I finally made a major site update today.  Things have been moving along quickly and I have obviously been really busy.  I attached three pics of the gameroom after the drywall went up.   The first is looking straight in, then to the left and right.  This room is about 15x27.  It will have very dark paint and blacklight carpeting.  It also has 5 separate circuit breakers for plenty of power.

It's been a while, but I made an update on the page and added pictures.  Lots of great progress has been made and the house is really shaping up great!  Be sure to hit refresh on your browser if you don't see today's update.

NOT BIG ENOUGH GAME ROOM!

The whole house should have been one big open room/arcade!

I was getting 1000 spam messages for every real one so I had it require a log in.  Not sure what that means though LOL...

Moving in today.  Have been so busy, I haven't had the energy to post pictures.  Hope to remedy that soon.  The gameroom is sick by the way.

Having visited more or less weekly since this all happened a year ago, I can say that John's new house is one of the most awesome houses I've seen. He really went all out on this. Looking forward to the first pinball gathering!

Been busy building a fence.  I should finally be bringing in the STLE and unboxing it tonight.  I have room for three or four more machines along the main wall of the gameroom.

Black walls make sure the pinball machines stand out. Nice!
