They were putting the windows in today


The new front door.  It hasn't been stained yet...but it will be a rich brown colour.  I surprised one of the guys working in the house as he opened the door.  He is hiding in the back.

That is the four car garage nestled in the back...I didn't get a good angle on it.

OMG... my porch!  there it is.  I had to fight a lot of fights to get it...and I got it.  I must have been a Southern Belle in another life.....I'm going to love it so much.  I already have ideas how to decorate it for next Christmas. 

This is truly the best.  It is so hard to imagine what you want on a piece of paper ... and with the help of my dear friend and designer hippy chick and Gord's dream of actually doing it....it looks like it's going to be just what we wanted.  I am very very happy. 

I had to laugh when the framer guy ...helped me in the house ...again... it was kinda steep.  He had some questions about the windows for me, and said as we went in..."don't mind the mess."  Ha...just like he lives there...I will soon be saying that too. 

Shingles are coming up next week.  A little piece of paradise.

It looks great, Joan. Why, it already looks cosy! That's what a veranda will do, I guess.
