House Update

For those of you who find it irritating when people talk about the house they're building, you may not want to read this post.  However, I will make this update mostly photos so that it doesn't get obnoxious. 



They are doing the finishes now--floors, cabinets, trim.  This first photo was taken from the back of the great room looking at the "bridge" on the second floor.  Sal and I are present for scale (I didn't shower that day if you can't tell)

This is taken from the front entryway, looking up at the great room timbers and the "bridge" from the other side.

Here is a photo of the kitchen with the cabinets in place taken from the hallway from the garage, looking toward the great room.  The island is looking quite big.

Here is another look at the timbers in the great room.

This is the master bedroom.  The wood floors have been laid and sanded, but not stained or sealed (for some reason the picture uploaded sideways).  The deck has been put on, but no railing yet.

Second floor looking from the top of the stairs (the end where Sal's bedroom and my office are) towards the  "bridge" and the end where Schmoopie's and Boofis' bedrooms are.

Another shot of the kitchen, this time from the great room.

So there you have it.  We're supposed to move in March 1st and look to be well within the schedule for this to happen.  We're getting kind of tired and cramped in the house
we're living in now.  It is clear that the room the girls are sharing is just too small.  And Schmoopie is getting to the age where she really needs more privacy.   It will be nice to once again have a master bathroom, and though I didn't show them, Veep and I both have our own closets.  It is all very exciting and I must say we all feel very lucky to have the opportunity to live in such a nice house.
