The devil is in more detail

Sasha - December 24, 2008

Hey there, I’ve posted some detail before, but this time I’ve got better pics to share now that certain bits and pieces have been placed.

So let’s start with the bathroom:

I’ve chosen Dornbracht fittings here. Primarily from the Meta.02 range - I liked its simplicity. You may think it’s odd to have a hand shower in the shower. Well, I kinda like the Japanese onsen experience. If you’ve ever had one, you’ll know that before entering the main pool areas, you sit on a little chair (called a hinoki) and you scrub with a loofah and then rinse. It’s a nice little ritual - and somehow more cleansing that an ordinary shower. Now I just have to find a nice hinoki…

For the bath I’ve used a Water Sheet and mixer from the Symmetrics range:

Rather excitingly, the kitchen was also installed last week. I’ve chosen Siemens rangehood and dishwasher, but Smeg hob, combi oven and fridge (also for the design aspect). I’m also putting in a Quooker; because I have an island only, I didn’t want to have a kettle sitting on top all the time (and I’m a bit tea drinker so hot water at the ready is a huge plus!):

Now it really feels like somewhere to live!

…which also has nothing to do with the fact that the toilet’s now in (Phillip Starck by the way):


  1. Awesome.

  2. I received an E Mail the other day and this is what it was in it. I think it is worth painssg along and think it worthy for everyone that reads this to pass along.That is those of you who value your freedom.Paul Hollrah over at FSM thinks that the issue of Obamas REAL birth placecan be resolved by Obama answering one simple question:What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York, Jakartaand Karachi?So how did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981 withoutthe price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of around- the- worldtrip just one month later?And once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi,what passport was he offering when he passed through customs and Immagration?The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions, TheyMUST have answers!It makes the debate over Obamas citizenship a rather short and simple one.Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20? Yes, by his own admission.What passport did he travel under?There are only three possibilities. He traveled with a U.S. passport, he traveledwith a British passport, Obama traveled with an indonesia passport.Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. passport in 1981? No. It is notpossible! Reason, Pakistan was on the State Departments no travel list. in1981.Conclusion:When Obama went to pakistan in 1981, he was traveling either with a Britishpassport or an Indonesian passport.If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that he was bornin Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims. And if he were taravelingwith an Indonesian passport, that would tend to prove relinquished whateverprevious citizenship he held, British or American, prior to being adopted by hisIndonesian step-father in 1967.Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he managed to become a naturalborn American citizen between 1981 and 2008!Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by his speech before Congress, and the disastrous spending plan, he has presented to Congressthe sooner we learn the truth of all of this, THE BETTER!
