IKEA Kitchen in a Yurt Dwelling

Chuck holds high standards for safety and of course, functionality and is the go-to guy for answers to all manner of questions about the interior construction, engineering or stability of almost any IKEA peice, new or old.

So when we saw Chuck giving high praise to IKEA Fans member ExTrEmE79, we were intrigued with the project and wanted to know more… Read the rest of this entry »
