    Wood is a lot more expensive in Mexico. That is why houses are made of brick and concrete.
    A wooden house would be very expensive here.
    Labor is a lot cheaper, as is the cost of living. That is one of the reasons I prefer living in Mexico.

    Sandra just found a 6 bedroom, 3 bath house in Cuenca for rent at $750/month. I said, great.... but why do we need 6 bedrooms? I only need one room for my hats!

    Oh, but you will need the other 5 bedrooms, Doug. Latinos are gregarious.

    Of course, Sandra is planning for that one, or two, times a year when someone might come to visit...

    There have been some serious conversations of late about me restoring some order to the boots and hats room, so yesterday I did.

    The only comment I've heard so far is "it looks so good in here." Of course I'm so myopic I don't see much of a difference. I did notice I haven't stepped on or tripped over anything in there today.

    Well done, Greg! Good boy!!

    I’ve been trying to find a suitable diversion for Mrs. Hats as an answer to my hat room, and I finally found it!!! She’s not a collector of anything, really; more interested in activity or sports.

    But then THIS showed up in the Real Estate section of the Wall St Journal...

    We could never afford a home like this, but I can do a candy room...

    Hat people could join in the compound, each responsible for a room or two...

    Great. A hat commune. Maybe a hat kibbutz?

    Sent directly from my mind to yours.

  17. The only things I see missing are a "Whiskey library", a mini-fridge & a keypad on the door.

    I've made several inserts from strips of cardboard and then covered them with tissue paper. Pretty simple really.

    Yes, I buy storage boxes from "Michaels" craft outlets (often on sale 2 for 1)and cut an insert from cardboard and duct tape inside. The boxes have hinged lids and Velcro closures.

    Hi fellow Loungers.

    How do you guys store your hats when not on your head?

    I've been wondering about the best or at least a good way to do this.

    I've seen some of you pack them in plastic, while some have them stored on top of one another on flat racks. Others have them lying around the place like me.

    The problem is, the more hats you acquire, the less space to store them. Especially when you have a small apartment like mine.

    I thought I'd start this new topic so we could inspire and learn from each other.

    I bought this hat stand recently and set it up today. It's my current solution.

    I have another plan of screwing old wine bottle corks on my walls and hanging my hats on them.

    Looking forward to hearing and seeing fellow FL'ers solutions.

    Best hat wishes - Steve[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
