In my house.
The rain this week and last has not been our friend. Especially since whompp, whomppp, our windows came in wrong. We have another week to go til they come in again (right this time hopefully!) so the guys are trying to do as much as they can without it being water tight. So no drywall, electrical, trim work, everything is being held off a bit.
They did switch out our bedroom window with our slider. Which I was a bit scared was going to make this room dark but it looks great, at least as far as I can tell with half the drywall missing and piles of dust everywhere, but it has to get worse to get better right???
We have the whole sunroom framed and wrapped up with tarps at the moment which is making our living room feel a little like a tomb with no windows. (PS since taking these photos this window is now gone and there is a huge gaping hole in it’s place, hence the rain inside my house…)
The Mr. and I climbed thru the window and did some furniture planning in here, and we bought a couch which should be delivered about the time we are (cross your fingers) done with construction. The windows will actually be as big as the framing, they have just yet to cut the excess plywood off.
We also have plans for a circular coffee table, despite the weirdly hexagonal shape the Mr. made on the floor it’s actually supposed to be a circle. I still have my eye out for one of those. The long line along the back is going to be a window seat that runs the length of the lake side windows. We wanted to maximize seating in here without blocking the view so the window seat is going to be perfect.
The best part…
I climbed out the window onto our soon to be rooftop deck and sat out there, this is the view!
It’s going to be so nice to have a glass of wine out here at night with the Mr. after the kids are down for the night. You know after they come out of their rooms for the 300th time for a glass of water/potty break/hug/one more tuck in/crazy nightmare….
Ok so maybe after all that, coffee in the morning is more realistic, but either way it’s going to be a nice place to hang out.
I’ve made a few lighting and flooring selections and I’ll be back later in the week sharing some idea boards about what I’m planning.
Also random fact, I LOVE the way new construction smells. It ranks right up there with new car smell. I think I’m onto something there…I could bottle it and make new construction spray…
ok so all the chaos may be getting to my head :)
