july 2002
Well, we updated the site. It took us quite a long time to do it, but we went through some crazy times with the move from London to Brooklyn. There was a lot of time spent putting in a shower/bath into our new place (which is a fairly raw space) and if anyone decides to tile, we now definitely have some tips on things to avoid...

Anyway, to those of you who've emailed or requested info and/or an update, thanks for your patience.
