October 23, 2011

Thursday and Friday were very busy at the house this past week. The masons did a ton of work starting with the front and side faces of the porch, below the poured and stamped concrete top.

Walking in the front door of the old house you enter into the dining room and kitchen. The pass through fireplace was bricked in as well as the arch into the new house. A fireplace was located in the same spot when the house was first built so we were happy to honor this part of the past.

The chimney runs up through the center of the house so we get to see it in the upstairs hallway and the loft above the bedrooms. Love it!

This doorway passes through to the new section of the home into the front foyer.

A filled in window in the upstairs guest bedroom. The stone will stay exposed.

We decided to go ahead and frame in the basement. We have a "pool table" area and then there will be an arch into the living room area with a fireplace.

There will be a short hall down to a full bath and nice sized bedroom or office area.

A peek at the back porch with the roof closed in and the sun shining ~ a lovely spot for wine!

And last but not least the front porch on the addition was bricked in. Hoping to get the new roof on next week and then insulation... moving right along!
