HELLO DRYWALL! This photo shows the stairwell in the foyer to the left as you enter the front door in the new part of the house. I love how you can see the original brick walls down the hall to the master bedroom as well as in the foyer. The wooden beam is still covered but you can imagine how nice that additional texture will be. We will have dark, distressed hardwood floors through the whole main level of the house.

January 3, 2012
Happy New Year! Hard to believe this project started in 2010, went ALLLLLL the way through 2011 and has now welcomed in 2012. I think this may be "our year." (fingers crossed!)
In the kitchen - an island will be parallel to the fireplace, the range and sink to the right and the fridge and freezer to the left on the wall across from and facing the pantry. The door leads to the walk in pantry. Can't wait!
Looking from the kitchen side.... a stairwell to the upstairs in the old house where the girls rooms are. You can also see into the front foyer.
A peek into the pantry. There will be floor to ceiling cabinets on the wall opposite the windows as well as a cabinet with counter tops on each end. One end will have a wine fridge and will serve as a bar area.
This is looking into the kitchen/dining from the front door of the old house. This side of the room will have a large dining table.
Looking from the "landing lounge" back at the old house. The passage goes through to the girls rooms, the door to the right is the guest room and the stairs go down to the foyer.
Studio windows out the back of the house. I can hardly wait!! eek!
So that concluded today's "tour of drywalled rooms." We used Ben Moore "moonlight white" through the entire house for now. I plan to add color through rugs, art and accessories and will paint a few rooms. Our focus for this farmhouse interior design will be on textures and natural tones. Looking forward to seeing how it all comes together, slowly but surely.
Cheers to 2012!
