We met with our contractor yesterday to discuss different ideas for the porch. The first being how we want our lights to be in the ceiling since they will need to go in this week and start sealing it up. The second was that we wanted to have a short wall surrounding our porch. The next day we came to find out porch looking like this:
Back Lower Porch
They also went throughout the house finishing the rest of the framing throughout the house.
This was another area we mentioned to the contractor last night about changing and he had it done by the next day. We didn’t plan on pushing the walls back as far, but decided that it may give it more of an open space.
We are trying to decide on how open we want to keep the area between the living room and dining room. We love the open space to the kitchen, but we really feel like we want to close off the living room a little from the dining room.
Bedroom #1 Bath and Closet
The shower was framed in today as well as the door to the closet being opened up. I decided that we would add a pocket door separating the closet from the bathroom. At first I was going to leave it open and decided that it would be better to have the option to close it off.
Bedroom #2 Bath
Master Bedroom Terrace
This was framed today, but after thinking about the downstairs bedroom a little. We (actually Jay fought this one a little) decided to make a door from the downstairs bedroom going into the bathroom as well. This will help with privacy for anyone running from the bath to the bedroom.
