SETTING THE STAGE FOR THE STEAMPUNK THEATRE OF YOUR LIFE
STAKE OUT YOUR OWN STEAMPUNK TERRITORY

Don't let living in mundane surrounds be a spanner in the cogs.
You too can still steampunk up your living spot.
So one way or another you are living under someone else roof or not in your forever home. Your co habitors are stuck in groove and wont let you go loose. For what ever reason you are halted from going full steam ahead. Don't let that hold you back from keeping a steamier side to your life.
