This is one of Bruce's frequent expressions and it sure is fitting to describe the flurry of activity on our new home in East Beach. Plumbers, electricians, framers, trimmers are scurrying around the job -- the list goes on and on.
First, take a look at everything that is going on outside:
|This is the view from the front corner of the house.|
The Windsor Windows have been installed.
|Trim work has begun in the rear courtyard. |
The future screened porch is starting to take shape.
|Our future neighbors' home has begun. |
Bruce and I can't wait to meet them!
|Bruce, our Lighthouse AV contractor, Jim and Kristi |
discuss computer, TV, and audio options.
|Kristi and her associate from Schneider Custom Builders |
consult the plans. They are standing in the dining room with the
living room to the left and the entry to the right.
|The staircase begins in the dining room and follows the exterior of the house to the upstairs.|
A light well at the top of the stairs with three triple windows spills light downward.
Our architect Jeremy Sommer of Sommer Design Studios knows how much importance we place on light. The placement of the duct return is important as a built-in buffet will nestle against the staircase.
Our friend and interior designer, Jacqueline Johndrow of Romancing the Home (Warwick, New York)
envisions a blue wall as you go upstairs to set a contrast to the painted stair rails and buffet.
I can't wait to see it come together!
|Bruce and Jeremy worked hard to ensure I had my bathtub. |
The tub is angled on both ends. Can't wait!
A triple window will spill light into the bathroom while
Bermuda Shutters will provide privacy. No peeking!!!!
|Four hand-carved beams will support the upper front porch.|
|BJ has been working hard on getting the beams just right.|
|This is a picture from the upstairs Billiard's Room looking up to the storage loft. |
The Billard's Room features a vaulted ceiling, upper front porch,
and a small beverage station.
