I have seen that somewhere, but can't remember the outcome. Any pics of the Wharram? Don't ask Mr. Wharram about it. He will only scold you for doing it. I know a guy who asked about a house on one of his smaller designs, and did not get a kind letter back. lololol.......i2f

I think that Dave, on Maxing Out, did a set up similar to what you're talking about. He's a member here, so maybe he'll see this and respond. You could also check out his website, Welcome to Maxing Out -- I think he describes it somewhere in there.
