Behind The Scenes: Update
Just to give you a sense of proportion, here is the new front door with a standard door leaning against it.
A view of the master bathroom, the tub will be next to the 2 windows and the shower area is on the other side.
This is the master bedroom with French doors leading out the terrace and windows looking out to the backyard
Brackets concealed behind the sheetrock wall which will support the floating counter in the children’s bathroom
This is a view of the living room where the bay window and walls have been sheetrocked , you can see the foyer on the left hand side
The kitchen has been sheetrocked and is ready for the floors and cabinets to be installed
Updated view of the back of the house, all the siding and roofing has been installed
This is the side of the house where you can see there is a new chimney stack
Here is the front of the house, the ground has not been graded and front steps are not built yet, on the right hand side you can see the garage. What you are seeing here gives you a sense of an old house and it doesn’t look like it was just plunked down out of left field.
This is the garage with studio space for the lady of house to paint. The studio faces the backyard where the pool will be built; we have installed skylights to bring in natural light.
This has been what to me feels like a 10 year process but in actually it has been a year and a half, the battles are still continuing over the last items that need to be decided upon. I dare say I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and now we are going to start the discussions about the decorative, it is a daunting task but as a friend of mine says – once you swallowed the horse what’s the tail?
