Thanks to all for your kind comments. If it were only true that the work on the house was really done, as they never are. But at least the biggies are now done.
Jim, you probably had no idea when you designed it, but then again, you probably did, that the window wall overhang, plus the 120 degree angles of the two wings there created an excellent band shell effect for my two outdoor stereo speakers, centered above the windows on the two outside wings. I think you can see one of them in the landscaping pictures. The sound is unbelievably awesome for outdoors, great bass, great stage image, and it fills the entire landscaped area. Good thing the neighbors are kind of far away!
