We were lucky enough to have been able to buy a fairly nice home (especially for a couple in our mid-twenties who just got married). Our living room even has crown molding! Yeah, it's sagging in one spot, but I'm sure I can fix that.
This post has been a long time coming. I just knew it was going to be massive, so I kept putting it off. Oops.
Just a warning, this post is extremely picture heavy.
When Tyler and I started dating, he showed me his massive book collection (lots of graphic novels, mostly), and mentioned how much he would love to have built in book cases big enough to hold them all one day.
