THE "BEFORE" PICTURES









The camera has decided to cooperate, so here are pictures from the project.

The first room is going to be our family room. The guys are excited about this. It will be a nice place for doing puzzles, playing games, and watching movies. Now that the kids don't need a "play room" we can all enjoy this space.

The second room will be my office. Wow, that feels great to say. DH has not said much about my writing goals; he is a guy of few words. The addition of the office to the remodel plans, however, was a major show of support. It is the greatest gift he has ever given me.

The machinery is out back to drill the well for the geothermal unit. The cold weather has delayed that part, but they are supposed to be back on Monday. We will have in-floor heat in the whole redone area, powered by the geothermal unit. Toasty toes next winter!

The "blank slate" of the before pictures has my mind wanting to plan every detail of the space. I'm going to wait until the walls are up, then get my masking tape out and plan where the furniture will go. And the dog beds. ;-)

That will be so nice to have your own space to write! I also think heat pipes in the floor is a great thing. Have a great Christmas and Happy new Year!
