Working on my man cave!

Not sure if it`s cool to post this here, but here goes. I live about 40 south of Indy in alog home , which we haved owned for about 5 3/4 yrs so far . well I`ve gutted the whole house and have remodeled the whole house so far and now I`ve been working in the last area , the basement. I`m trying to make it look like it`s log also and rustic. I`ve worked in the constuction fields for over 25 yrs , so I do all mine own work. So here you go what ya think?

That looks really nice! The one thing I would have done if it were my place, would be to make the wood look a little aged and maybe make it a tad darker.. But it looks killer! Good job!

This is the living room , I removed the old floor and installed this wormy maple flooring and , built the hearth from real stones, I`m trying to find a picture , we have a old 1895 total cast iron parlor antique stove their now, it from the buck`s stove company it has deer heads on it . I installed these new log stairs and half log landing, I through in the burly post to make it more rustic. We also replaced all the blue stained pine paneling every where. My wife made this light . Thats a huge walnut slab, with carabou antlers.

Here is a picture of the stove before I hooked it up. It`s a wood burning stove. We have a small 14" baseburner that has a set of double doors on the 3 sides and has 3d deer heads on the top part, it burns soft coal, were haven`t restored that stove yet. Here is the link to the baseburner we have , we bought this stove you see in this link about 7 yrs ago. http://www.canadian-antique-stoves.c...diant-home.htm
