That is outstanding! Really, really cool! Unfortunately, the winters here would decimate a lot of that so you'd have to move some inside. Really great though and really nice of your wife to give you your own corner!

That is SOOOO COOL!!! That really did wonders to that area and I love the whole exotic/Indyesque motif. The Idol pedestal turned out great and really looks like it came out of the film. Make sure no one steps on the blocks the wrong way or... OUCH! :D Also, I see that you have some snakes meandering your abode - "Snakes... why did it have to be snakes?!" ;)

That is AWESOME!
Totally needs some of those rock looking outdoor speakers with a loop that alternates jungle sounds and the opening music from Raiders.
