The house took on a whole new look today when Lewis and crew framed the two windows on the front of the log section. They also began working on the two small windows in the master bedroom which look out onto the woods.
It’s amazing how with every step the house looks more and more like an actual house. There are lots of decisions to be made, as Kelley says, on the fly. Not the least of these is what kind of door to put in the dogpen connecting the log rooms. My good sense says, “Put a wood door and a window,” so that the house will look right from the outside. But my other less good sense says, “Put big doors with lots of glass so that when you step into the house through the main entrance you can see how beautiful the view is.” I am torn.
Now the office has a window. The office is a small room, only 9′ x 13′ or so. But I am picturing a soft chair, a lot of books, and the afternoon sun pouring in.
Now that the log section has begun to look house-like, I am more and more anxious for the timber frame to arrive. The spot for it is ready and waiting.
