Because we have windows! Whee!
Yes, all of our new windows are in, and I’m so excited! We went with 3 foot wide by 5 foot tall windows in most places, so there is a ton of natural light inside.
This is the eat-in part of the kitchen.The smaller window that you can see to the left is actually in the mudroom. There will be a door between the mudroom and the kitchen. I’m pretty excited to have a room dedicated to just mud. Hubby Doc can really make a mess when he puts his mind to it.
This is the “kitchen” part of the kitchen. The sink will go under the window here, the cabinets will wrap around the corner to the right and onto the peninsula in the front of the photo. A peninsula! Yay!
This sliding glass door is just to the left of the kitchen (from the photo above) and will go out to the back porch. I can’t wait to have a back porch for drinking coffee first thing in the morning.
Although with all these windows and natural light in our master bedroom (complete with sitting area), I may not need to go outside to enjoy the view!
This is going to be my office. I’ll probably be super-productive in here. (Seriously? My view is going to be great. But not as good as from the porch… maybe I’ll have a traveling office!)
There’s even a new window in my new (main floor) laundry room!
And the doors and window have been put in the new basement. This will open to our walk-out patio. That’s a muddy pit right now, but with plenty of gravel and retaining walls it will be a great space.
I’m still waiting on siding… Bueller? Apparently the weather isn’t “right” for siding… whatever that means. There’s some dirt work to do around the house so the base and decking for the porches can get put in, and the electrical and plumbing work needs to get finished up. Then insulation, and drywall, and painting! I think it’s getting closer… Our contractor says we will be painting in less than 30 days.
Anyone have ideas on paint colors?
