Remodel after photos

Here are the AFTER photos. We had the guy who did our kitchen make a shelf unit for one wall and an entertainment center (with glass shelves) for the TV and such. Luiz now has more than 30 shelves to putz with. (Posted earlier: we had 80 odd boxes of stuff shipped from San Francisco.) The mirror on the wall was purchaced here from a local artist.

The couch was a real find. Most of the furniture we've seen is HUGE. We really needed something more like a love seat to fit in the space, but nearly all the sofas/love seats have these rediculously wide arms on either side. We finally spotted this one. They called it a feijão ("big bean") sofa because it's shaped like a kidney bean. LOL Plus the cushion is nice and firm (also hard to find).

We are super happy. And Luiz is in his element tinkering with what goes where.

Here's the cabinet maker and his younger brother.
