This is a room i made for my dad before he passed. He came to live with my family in the spring of 2009 and passed on my birthday Nov. 21, 2009. He was a Marine to the end. I remodeled this room for him over the winter of 2009. I gutted down to the studs, added insulation, rewired, new windows, new baseboard heat new doors, enlarged the closet, wired for a HDTV so he could watch his NY Giants games in HD, and installed a new floor, pre-finished oak with a Koa inlay boarder. Dad was a carpenter by trade and was very proud of the outcome that was made for him. He was my inspiration and mentor. He is still missed by us all. The joked still come out, what would dad think??? Picture #3 and 6 are the old room.
