As you pull up to our drive, you'll notice (at least) three new things. The daffodil bulbs that Jack planted by the roadside in November have made an appearance, the fence is up (but not yet painted) and the mailbox is in place, so please send us a letter.
I'm hoping progress will still be made on the outside and on the cottage. Because...in just twelve days, we're moving in! Ready or not.
Here are some scenes from inside the house this morning. It is a bit hard to take inside shots that make any sense, so I've added captions to explain what you are looking at.
|Family room, taken from the loft.|
|Loft, looking into the back upstairs hall. The yellow nook that you see is where an upright piano or Jack's keyboard will eventually go.|
|The upstairs hall, looking back through the loft into the family room.|
|Closet in the upstairs bedroom. |
Just upstairs, I painted the narrow sides of the doors
and all the wooden pegs yellow.
|Upstairs bath. I get a kick out of the little wall-mounted sink.|
|A look into the other bedroom, with built-in beds for four.|
|Sconce on the landing of stairway to loft|
|Our study with sliding "barn door" between it and our bedroom.|
|Kitchen, looking at pantry "barn door."|
And here are a couple of outside shots.
|Gutters going up.|
|Our lake, surrounded by a sea of mud. Keep your fingers crossed for dry weather |
this week, so the finish grading can happen and seed and straw put down.
