When Carey called and told me there were LOTS Of cars on site today I had to check it out for myself... NO LIE! What a miracle! Lots of inside details in the framing work are being put to bed.
Our beams have been patiently waiting to be set in place so when I pulled up to see them CUT I could hardly wait to see them INSIDE the house....
YEAH! Just as I had pictured, the beams were set over the door ways into the great room. In previous posts there were aches there but I really wanted to add more texture and a bit of a rustic flair. I'm beyond thrilled! (I think Carey is too :) ha!)
A shot looking from in the great room back through the small hall (the powder room is to the right) and through to the kitchen door into the old stone house. The passage way into the kitchen will be an arch in brick.
So sad this came out blurry but here is my Carey and contractor Cary holding up the fireplace mantle in the great room. Love it!
Carey has been so hard at work on the project and I'm pleased to boast that he is expertly skilled in the building field. He was VERY essential today, answering all the detail questions and helping to figure out how to finish things up. There are no blue print plans on a job like this. You might even say we're making it up as we go. Even though it has been extremely stressful, I think it will ultimately be VERY clear that this house is a major labor of love. XOXOs go out to my MAN for getting it done. Love you, Carey!!
