    That's incredible. If it was mine I think I'd live in there!

    Now that is a downright fantastic room. Love the textured walls and the dark trim and doors. I've not seen that technique of pouring a floor. Really gives it a zing. Now you need animals on the walls.

    Thank you. Yes, its a bit messy right now. On the exterior, I added a french drain to keep water moving in between the main house and the trophy room, then re-sodded everything, and added 7,000# of river rock around the exterior, all of which I did myself. My back was not a fan lol. The low voltage guys installed a TV, wifi, and security cameras. Furniture is slowly being added. My north america animals are starting to get hung. My SA animals are still at the taxidermy so unfortunately lots of bare walls right now! Once I get all the furniture in, I'll update with some pictures.

    Please do, and I'm sure I speak for everyone who has been following this post, that we are dying to see what the final products looks like. (y)(y)

    Ok ok! I am waiting on a pool table and most important a number of African animals but I’ll go ahead and take pictures of the current status. Thanks for the kind words.
