    :confused:.... I did specify width :blush:

    I shall have to do some hunting ;)... I HAD some window candles (only have 1 left) that were designed with a nifty half-tray that would probably work for your windows.... wait - I'll take a pic and post it - and see if there's any brand name info for you ;)... The ones I have now have a very narrow base and light sensors.. I still see them on the shelves at Wal-Mart from time to time and buy spares... they're not the greatest quality (light sensors go) but they're under $3 each so I shan't complain! I DO replace the bulbs in the Wal-mart ones with a lower wattage cooler-burning bulb.... candles should "glow" in the night... Not flood the front yard!

    ...in room ambient music systems... try www.putumayo.com for some really interesting multicultural collections to help pull off the feel you mentioned earlier :) I have this one in now....

    and I TRULY dislike overhead lights... can we do a diffused light throughout? My favorite is a large crown-molding look that doesn't completely hit the ceiling so that lights can be hidden within... but that's just one possible effect...

    [​IMG]

    ..making, of course, a lake a bit of a necessity...

    Absolutely! I've already got the old-fashioned popcorn trolley! :)
    Not to mention the old projector, theatre seating... and such... from the current abode.

    hmmm..looks like the plans are coming together for the new house....

    yup a lake is much better than a pool, as we don't have to clean it :laugh: we just have to keep it clean

    would the library be as big as the one in "Beauty and the beast" ?

    Well how do you feel about a "pool boy" though, Vbrio? :smart: :laugh: *I thought so!*
    Personally, I'm a rather neat and organised sort but I know my limitations and I know that I need a pro to clean my place! I'm not talkin' 'bout a live in maid or anything... just not my style and I like my privacy... but I do need a good cleaning in here say once a week or so... so... I see nothing wrong with a pool and a lake. But I have a lake and... it does have to be cleaned... and ya' gotta' keep everything evened out as far as plants and fish... go... or it can get really outa' hand. I can't remember the library in B & the B... it was probably bigger than mine that I'm in at this very moment I'm certain! This one is just perfect for one though. ;)

    You have to clean your lake? :confused:

    It must be a smaller lake or something...

    nahh.... unless its a natural and long-existing lake that has a bit of a current and balance you usually have to pay attention to algae and other little details...

    Even the high-tech lake creators cannot always win... There is a local flood control lake (Army Corps of Engineers) that, while beautiful, is too acidic for fish to breed... the waterskiiers don't mind that no-one fishes it ;)

    ...and then there's the occasional restricted fish that makes it's way into your lil' lake... either by swimming, flopping, walking (?) or by... *looks around paranoid-ly* ...conspiritor ;) ...and just wreaks havoc! Didya' know the Army Corps of Engineers have been fighting a relatively unknown war against a snakehead fish in Lake Michigan for some 5 years now? I believe we'll certainly need some computers and all sorts of cool, geeky, techie toys for this lake. ...and not just 'cause all that stuff is really cool! ;)
