The outer livingroom & view
The ceiling is super high - I think 20 feet or close to that.. which is unique and really cool too!

Main level bedroom
This room also has some minerals and fossils in it,
mostly on the wall behind the photographer in this pic as well as the corner 'columns..
I should find more pics of that wall and add them here.. so much to do..
