A little bit of chrome costs a lot

What is it about taps that makes them so expensive?  We went to the luxe tap store and chose taps and toilets and showerheads like making pick'n'mix and then got the prices - eeek.  But the luxe stuff is somehow so much nicer than the cheaper stuff..... almost indefinably so as they're just taps, for heaven's sake.  But it's really the design you're paying for, I guess.  And that was before we went to the oven showroom and started looking at teppenyaki add-ons for enornmous stainless less ovens.  There goes the budget (again).

Off to a slow start....

Well, finally we're getting somewhere. Appointed an old friend of DrK's as our architect and getting into this renovation at last. Had the block surveyed properly, even just appointed structural engineers and meeting with the landscapers next week - yay!
