It’s taking shape…to the point that now I find myself taking photos of the inside more than the outside.  Yesterday we stopped by Fred’s site and saw windows; real windows, not the Microsoft kind–JeldWen, to be specific, all packaged up and ready to go into the holes in the walls that are already up.  Very coolest thing was that there’s one in already, where my lovely European bathtub will go, so you can see the view from my tub.

Window view from the inside outWe’re still waiting for the last couple pieces of steel that will hold up Fred’s “bend,” the area in the middle of my sweet husband’s office that has an angle to it where the house goes off in another direction.  (Kind of like our conversations often do.)  So there’s an unintentional atrium where his office will be, the last spot of the house that has no roof now.

Picking door handles and outside materials is still on our agenda; we’re settling on zinc to cover a section of the garage face and the bump-out/extrusion at the entry door.  Our wonderful builder comes up with new ideas, entirely unlike most builders from what I understand, and when we kept waffling on what wood to use there–because neither of us is keen on the idea that we’d have to treat it every year or so or have rotten-looking cedar or some other material at the front of the house, the part everyone sees right away–he said “what about zinc?”  Both of us had thought it was pricey stuff, out of our budget (which is growing every day, unfortunately), but it turns out the cost is about the same as the wood would have been and we both like the look.  Thank you, Leon, for liking new stuff and coming up with ideas that settle our indecisiveness.

So…here are a few more photos of how Fred’s looking these days, from the inside out.KittoLivRmNov18LauraOfficeNov18
