In all the excitement over the last few weeks over here at suburban casa de cul-de-sac I have shamefully neglected to post some pictures of our little home addition project. It's done, finally and it is divine if I don't say so myself. Which is a good thing to think when you are sporting a nice home equity line bill, yes?
The landscaping bill came in high, so we've mostly decided to skip the $2000 to pop in a flower bed and do it ourselves in all our spare time this fall. Nothing like transfering hosta with a 10 month old on your hip. The Muffin Man is insisting on a gravel walking path done professionally, more pictures of that when it is complete, look for those shots somewhere in 2008.
I present...the new playroom. I know it sort of needs curtains but the windows are so pretty I simply can't bring myself to cover them just yet. When you have lived 15 years with crummy cheap windows and you experience the sheer joy of quality in a window...curtains are not your first priority.
See the "baby" gate? It is really a doggie gate. Apparently cinnamon stained maple somewhat resembles outdoor grass when you are a 14 your old Lhasa Apso. We will have to figure something else out when Liv comes home since it is not bolted to the wall.
All in all it took only 3 1/2 months which included a stamped concrete patio. It is 18'x20' of sheer playroom bliss. I hope the girls will like to play there...a lot...as in for the next 20 years.
