We refer to the other as "the bathroom bedroom", for it contains assorted faucets, cabinet hardware, oak drawers I bought second-hand, and piles of assorted lumber and salvaged teak from boats that I was (am still?) planning to turn into a bathroom cabinet unit for the bathroom we're been planning to remodel since the plumbing burst in the wall...8 years ago. This room is completely unlivable.

...Not to mention the pedestal sink standing in the living room next to the bookcase!

Then there's the copper-pipe art trellis half-soldered in the garage, and the cedar branches salvaged from the yard that I'm going to do...something...with...and...

You get the idea.
