A couple of pics of my 5 year old daughter wearing the AWESOME yet bizarre hand painted cupie doll head I scored at a yard sale a few years back. Vaguely clow-like, I guess http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d65/jesgord/photo-4.jpg http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d65/jesgord/photo2-1.jpg

Is this the same design as the 'Operation Trade Secrets House.' shown in "Before You Buy a House" or do they both just use similar names?

Jesgord What a view! Are those Kerf cabinets? How do you like them? Thanks. The views are even better from the roof decks :D The cabinets are Kerf. We could not be happier with them. Fantastic craftsmanship, beautiful/solid blum hardware. They even did the front panels for our fridge and dishwasher.
