No April Fool's Jokes

We drove down to the house Thursday after my chiropractor appointment to do some final layouts for the master bath. After we met with Sparkle, (yes, that IS her real name) about the flooring, we took a drive back over to the house to see how far they got in just a few hours. The floor was layed, and they were working on 5 walls.

And Friday, after we had driven to MD when O's flight was changed again, we received a call saying the plan wasn't going to work for the layout; there wasn't enough room.

So.... we drove back down this afternoon when we got home from MD.

We couldn't believe the progress that was made in just three days.

From left to right the rooms go as follows: O's room, the office, foyer, laundry, pantry, and then our bathroom is at the back wall of the garage. The porch is from the office wall to the laundry room, and will be covered.  Over head is the FROG (finished room over the garage, for those of you that live west of the Appalacheans. It's about the same size as our apartment was back home. It has an additional full closet and full bath that extends over our bathroom.

From the foyer you can look out what will be french doors off the great room. These actually are a separator between the living (great) room and the kitchen. You can sort of see the kitchen windows to the right of the door opening.

The is the back of the house. From left to right the rooms are the master bedroom, 4 windows make up the kitchen), the living (great) room with the french doors and windows, and then T's room.

Laying out another idea for a bathroom took about an hour and a half. As with anything, there was some compromising that entered in the picture. Smaller walk in closet, but only a half-wall for the biffy so the space doesn't feel so compressed. We also added a window above the lou, so sun could get in later in the day. It's probably not as much sun as I would like, but like I said.... there was compromise going on.
We won't be down again until next weekend.

Can you imagine what it will look like then?

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week! And as always,

be blessed!


Plane Delays

After the second day of flight changes, we drove to Maryland to visit friends. We had O's ticket changed to fly out of BWI. On our way to Upper Marlborough, we stopped at Shark Tooth Beach. It's really called Brownie's Beach, but we call it Shark Tooth Beach because we have found so many shark teeth there. O found quite a few small ones for his brother, R, who he went to visit over spring break.

I hope you have a wonderful visit O!!

And... Of course I miss you. A bushel and a peck, and a hug around your neck!

See you soon!
