Now, when you walk in, you walk into our living room and if you look left.... There is an honest to goodness real wall, with a doorway that leads to a normal hallway. And now, where the living room used to be is a sweet little room for a sweet little girl. Everything in this room is brand new. Except for the windows, those were already here, thank goodness. I already have to find newish windows for every other room in the house, so it is nice have these two that can stay.
To say we are excited about this is a huge understatement. This is the only room in the house that is officially done. All the other rooms that we have touched still have bits and pieces to do still. Mainly because all those rooms are plagued with weird sideways windows that you have to bend over to look out of. But don't get me started on that....
Of course this project did not go smoothly since we are dealing with a 1905 house that has had five, yes FIVE, different additions. The portion we are working with here is the most poorly built out of all of them. The floor, the ceiling and even the windows aren't even close to level. One window is set just a tad further into the wall than the other. My husband loved putting the knew sill in those windows, that are right next to each other and needed to have one continuous sill and I am pretty sure he thanked me for picking out this house to buy at that very moment... ahem. I am not even sure if custom is the right word for the work he had to do. Custom just doesn't seem extreme enough. But I digress.
Are you ready to see the first ever completed room at HavenRock Farm?????
I will show you the final reveal next time!
I know, I know, but what is a girl suppose to do? Put all her content in one blog post? What would I write about next week if I did that?
See you soon!
