wow, wow, wow! i can't believe another week has flown by and i have not made the time to post. i was just going through photo's and realized i probably have enough to post for a month, so i will waist no time and get started.
photo 1 = front room, only guest room, and if you remember this was a part of the original wrap around porch, which we think was added to the original cabin in the 20's and then enclosed into indoor living space in the 40's. anyway, finally a place to perch during the working weekends. this room is the closest to being complete and i have to say i have to say the silent nights are not bothering me so much more....as i am sleeping in a real bed with real sheets..the sleeping bags are back in storage. whoopie!!
photo 2 = entry hallway, only hallway, originally this was also part of the wrap around porch and you cannot tell from my bad photography...but it is a huge space. i love wood in its natural form and color and if this ceiling had not been stained with the dark brown indoor outdoor stain, we may have kept the original wood exposed, but it was just too dark and thus the paintbrush workout continues (same in front perch room). also, the french doors are finally installed. (these were getting ready to be thrown away by our friends and we rescued them and not they have a home where they are already well loved)
photo 3 = hallway progress. talk about bringing in the light...holy cow it makes a huge difference.
heading back to hillside project in the pm. this weekend will be the hallway finishing touches. all the bead board, and finishing work will be installed and we can start the real painting and lay out the welcome mat for the hallway :). fingers crossed.
