We have catching up to do...Part III


My Studio

Ok, somebody owes me an explanation. 

 I thought it felt a bit draughty....



I did wonder where they managed to find all that beautiful hardwood cladding for the mudroom...with exactly the same shade of yellow... This was NOT in the plan.

We have catching up to do...Part II

master bedroom and ensuite

the east window will have to be lifted up
above the master bed headboard


lots of new framework happening out
in the bathroom/mudroom & laundry

Spring is here!

the gnarled old wisteria reveals its true colors.
We'll be leaving these trees here.

the mudroom gets some cladding...
but where did it come from?
Perhaps they thought I wouldn't notice? more on this in Part III

powder room to the left, bathroom to the right

looking through to the garden from the mudroom

We have catching up to do...Part I

this is where the old fireplace was.
We will patch it up with a new hardwood floor

'natural skylight'...
ah, we had better patch that up soon

cavity sliding doors are in

we are standing in the kitchen/living area...
and this will be the view of fridge and pantry
...and the french doors on the left
lead out to the garden, ahhh :)

bathroom...still doesn't have its new roof...

out with the old and in with the new rafters
for a high ceiling & pitched roof

plenty of spare vintage doors...
do you think we will re-use them? I hope so

Honestly, you leave a man alone with a bulldozer for one moment...

fill it full of water and we have a moat! "raise the drawbridge!"

much better drainage...we hope

raising up the kitchen window so the benches will fit beneath

how do you like the reclaimed french doors?
