Dang... that looks down-right sexy. :? :shock:

"If It Was A Woman - She'd Be A '10'..."
however... being PC might pose challenging for the lyrics... ;)

Very interesting. I would love to see those sound panels close up. They look pretty cool. How long did it take to make those?

One thing I am noticing; the lack of windows in people's rooms. I get that windows can be trouble, but don't you guys get a bit claustrophobic? I have got to have natural light or I feel trapped and less creative.

Very cool digs, though. Thanks for sharing Cass.

Cheers

KC, I made one every 2 days, like doing a jigsaw puzzle while watching TV. I'll post some pics of the process in a bit.
I do have a window, you can see the hinges on one of my fabric panels, necessary 'cause I smoke.
