Given my track-record with staying vertical on my feet, it’s really only a matter of time before I end up skidding across the floor sheathing on my face in a setup like this. Which I expect will provide ample entertainment for 1.) MysteryMan, 2.) the framing crew, and 3.) the entire Internet. Until that happy event, let me give you a little tour of my obstacle course house.
The existing exterior walls won’t be taken down until we’re nearing the end of the project, so until then, these are windows inside of windows.
The large bump-out in front there is the new kitchen.
This is the mudroom. Kitchen entry through a yet-to-be-cut hole to the left, basement stairs to the left, door to the veranda and donkey-viewing area straight ahead, and master bedroom, laundry room, and assorted closets to the right.
Here’s another view of the master, looking through the walls of the closet (right) and laundry room (left).
In person it looks pretty much the way I’ve been picturing it in my head for the last year, although it’s nice to get a sense for the actual space of the thing, since I’ve been staring at it in 1/4″ scale since its inception. One thing I didn’t realize from the print…
How big the window in the commode closet will be.
I mean, I’m all for light and airy, but this may be a little too, uh, exposed. Thank god for the invention of window treatments I guess, cause there’s no turning back now.
