Up until now I've posted very few photos of the interior of the house.
2x4's and open walls are hard to decipher and don't make for very interesting shots!
But now that the insulation is in, there is definition to the space
and the rooms can make sense in a photograph.
The stonework on the fireplace wall is completed,
although the board is just a temporary blocking for the mantel.
This is the kitchen sink window... the island will be opposite the window with the stove to the left.
There are lots of varied ceiling heights in the house, but the only vaulted ceiling is in the kitchen.
I love it! Very different from having the typical vaulted den!
Another view of the kitchen with the door going out to the porch and dining room to the right.
And just to tempt everyone who has promised to visit.... here's the most important room in the house.... The guest room!
A little info on the house since I've had a few questions lately
from old friends and new blog visitors....
We're hoping to be in the house sometime in August and luckily we're comfortable here in our nice rental home. We've extended our lease so we aren't feeling a squeeze or rush,
just a desire to unpack our things and start living in our dream house!
A common question for folks to ask us is "Did you downsize?"
Well.... not exactly! The house is 500 sq feet larger than our old one in Louisiana.
But we do have fewer rooms!
I'm not clear on how we managed to lose two bedrooms (and 4 sons)
and design a larger house but leave it to us to find a way!
The house will have 3 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths and a study that can be used for a bedroom in a pinch.
Sheetrock here we come!!!
