I’ve been getting a lot of flak from family and friends to post another update on the house.
I know this is supposed to be a quilty blog but there hasn’t been much quilting going on lately. I’ve been packing and trashing and giving away and also getting some fun fabrics ready to put on the blog for sale. As soon as the boxes I ordered from USPS get here, I’ll get pictures taken of the fat packs and other yardage and get them up for you to pick from. I had thought about setting up a “selling blog”, but I think once I get rid of this stuff, there won’t be much else left to sell. So, I’ll stick to this blog for now.
Anyway, we stopped by the house today to see what progress has been made.
They’ve finished the siding, the trim work, the stone and the roof. All that’s left on the outside is the paint (dark grey with light grey trim), building the columns and putting in the garage door. (I’m sure there’s more but that’s all I can think of right now.) Oops, Mr. CnW just let me know that the gutters aren't up yet. LOL.
This is the view from the front door. See that catwalk at the top? That leads to my nest. On my way there, I’ll be able to look over into the entry and also the Great Room.
If you come and visit me, I’ll be able to greet you from the catwalk! Hi there!
The ceiling is coffered in the entry, the dining room and the master bedroom. We will put rope lighting up there for a nice effect. (That’s Mr. CnW in his den).
This is the great room. The fireplace will have stone all the way up in the arched part. That's the staircase going to my nest on the left.
Now we’re walking into my nest. That door on the right leads out to a deck. I’m embarrassed to tell you that it’s actually there for Jack (the kitty). No joke!
Looking back at the entrance.
See the attic on the left? Nice surprise with that. The architect told us he found some attic space for us and we just said “that’s nice”. We figured we’d be crawling thru rafters to store things. Little did we realize that he had designed the trusses so that we would have straight walls and a flat ceiling.
This is what it looks like taken from the nest doorway.
And this is looking back toward my nest.
Do you know how much fabric can be stored in there? Wheee!
When walking out of my room to go downstairs, there’s a large window above the stair landing. This was the view today.
We think they will be doing the texturing of the walls next and it may be painted by the end of next week. Exciting to see it all coming together.
Remember this picture?
Well, that contraption is a reel used by the electricians to pull the wire off. You won’t believe what I thought it was. It was mounted to the wall where the gas stovetop is going, so I thought it had something to do with that. LOL I bet you don’t want me building your house!
I loved reading what you all thought it was. Very cute ideas. Erin from The Rusty Nickel got it right. (Helps to have a hubby who is a contractor).
That’s it for now. Next, I might share some of my choices for tile. I’m starting to second guess myself. I think I’ve second guessed myself on every decision so far. Arghhh!
