the hallway storage is one of my favorite spaces...so much stuff "neatly" hidden away!
Steps to living room
reclaimed douglas fir...same as the heavy timbers. and more FLOR tiles.
View out dining room window from kitchen sink. Matt hopes to eventually build a dining room table from the huge white oak tree that was removed for construction. we had the tree milled and it is currently drying. the adjacent porch (just off the dining room) will be screened-in this spring.

One of our frequent visitors, the boys are not even excited to see turkeys anymore! Unfortunately, our windows have become somewhat of a hazard to the birds around here...last week 2 scarlet tanagers lost their lives to the windows and the week before it was 2 yellow bellied woodpeckers. (and our windows are filthy - what will happen when we get them washed?!!)
And now for some exterior shots... The prodema worked out beautifully.

The empty spot on the garage will also have prodema siding. We have a bit of landscaping yet to do! Matt is planning on screening in the porch this spring...and we'll need it; I spotted a mosquito last week - at 42 degrees!
The tile of the kitchen backsplash was installed last week... we're still waiting for our master shower tile to arrive. This tile is clear glass, but has a beautiful sea-green hue to it installed.
The custom cabinetry was installed in the living room last week, too. We are still waiting on the fireplace surround, which is currently being fabricated. (Note the mess already collected on the entryway ledge....)
That's it for this week's update....more to come.

Kitchen from entrance
Living room from steps
We're living in the house now! The exterior still has a ways to go, but inside we're feeling pretty comfortable...especially with the heated concrete floors. It's been too long since I've posted, but I don't have time to go into great detail. Pictures are worth a thousand words, right?
