Our finish carpenter (who is a friend, who’s daughter has played piano with Big T for six years) started on the ceiling material this week. I knew I would like it, but the more that gets done the more beautiful it is looking. I love it.
The first little section….by the fireplace.
The first dormers done….the material went through a planer once so there is some wood showing through the paint on some of the boards. It’s hard to see from this photo because it’s so high up.
So far what is done. We are so happy with it. We just stare at it….a lot. (Haha)
It’s been a busy couple of weeks. We have been cabinet shopping. We’ve narrowed it down to two different makers. The one company is making three cabinet door for me so I can get an idea what the finish will look like if we go with them. They will be painted, and distressed.
I went to a huge antiques fair in Round top Tx…with my littlest man a few weeks ago. (I have been working on that post 😏). And bought three industrial high bay light fixtures. From warehouses in the 30’s and 40’s. And a few other lights. They are all pretty eclectic.
We have electricity in the house. Just two outlets are turned on so the workers can run tools without all the doors open. And when we are ready we can start some finish electrical. So things are moving along.
Sorry for being so absent…it seems life is just a busy business 😉. Cole coached our oldest two in soccer this season. So fun, but a serious time commitment.
Loved all these kiddos ⚽️ our two are on the lower left. :). Big C just turned 10…and Big T just turned 11. Crazy we have two kids in the double didgets.
