Man makes apartment look like Voyager set
How 'bout "Voyager transporter room?" Not exactly my first choice, but that's what Tony Alleyne chose, according to a profile at ElectronicHouse.com. About three years ago, he decided to transform his studio into the transporter room of what he felt used the best material of all the Star Trek starships; he called it "the luxury liner of the galaxy."
He handcrafted everything in the apartment except the plumbing; the transporter console alone took him two years, and it doesn't do much more than make the transporter sound. He spent so much money on the project, he had to file for bankruptcy. But now that it's done, he's looking to sell it (for $200,000), move into a bigger space and transform that.
I wonder if Rachel Cericola, the woman who reported the story for ElectronicHouse, was the first one in the apartment since Tony started his remodel. I'm pretty sure she'll be the last.
