The Out of Africa suite evolved from the original design of an Italian suite and features a teak 4-poster bed that was imported from the West Indies. After an architectural auction of the Farmers & Citizens Bank, the mantel and tub surround was rescued from Judge Beer’s office and given a second life. The pieces are made from Sycamore wood, which is a very rare find today. The fireplace hearth, as well as the bathroom counter-top, came from the bank’s teller area. Along with two workers, Steve and Debbie ‘withdrew’ all the chocolate marble from the bank to create the master piece.
