Our New Home

Spring 2003

The Family Room Before...
This is my favorite chair.
On a rainy day you can find me here
 with a good book and a warm fire.
The Play Area
Awsumb claims this area all his own! 
He loves to ride his rocking horse,
read books and just figure things out.
The Entertainment Center
This is Kenneth's BIG TV!
One day I will buy a nice armoire
to hide the black hole!.
Our Kitchen Remodel oozed into the Family Room
The Beam and Log Pole were replaced and trimmed out.
New Lighting, Trim, Paint, etc.

The Family Room 2008
Kenneth's new black hole... 
(coming soon)
The Kitchen
We just have a small kitchen with an attached dining area. 
The best feature is the large garden window.  My herbs get lots of sunshine.
But for the most part the kitchen is dark and dreary!

And finally, here it is after of years of waiting,
4 months of construction and our life savings later...

Above the Family Room is a loft.

Master Bedroom
After... Updated 2006
Still hoping for that custom bedding and window treatments
and looking for the perfect piece of art for over the bed.
The Guest Room
We like to call this "The Sunshine Room."  My TO DO list includes, but is not limited to: paint trim and add wainscoting (white), antique white iron bed, white dresser.
And to set up the closet to work as my "craft room" (instead of just storage).

Awsumb's 2004 Bedroom Before...
This room was added onto the house using attic space about the garage.
It is one long room with a ceiling sloped to about 3 feet.  Watch your head!

Entry into Awsumb's room There is no closet space in the room, but this nook might be a good place to put in a closet organizer
The only window is in the entry and faces the door into the hallway
The skylights over the play area bring in lots of sunshine
I made simple window treatments to soften the windows a bit
Before Awsumb loves his new baseball bedding
Play Area- Before Play Area - After
Awsumb's Bedroom After...
Awsumb is growing up fast and his room is turning into a big kid room.
