My Home Sweet Home

Caleb and myself doing our framing walk thru.

It's been a long time since I've written about my home.  So I went back and checked out where I left off.  Framing.  It was so exciting to see the walls go up.  It started to feel like a real home.  It was also very scary.  It's hard to feel space at this point.  Everything felt small.  It also meant all the thought that had gone into building the perfect home for my family was getting done and I couldn't change my mind.  But luckily after hours of pouring over the plans and making decisions I felt and still feel good about where we landed.  So the obvious decisions about wall placement was determined in this stage.  We actually had a wall extended in the family room that was not in the plan.  The builders made the correction immediately.  It was good we caught it because it was a small extension of a wall and while it made sense when you saw it; it did not allow for one big run of our family room and kitchen which was an integral part of our layout plan.  This is also the time where decisions about pocket doors or ceiling tray placement need to be made.  So here is another shot of our progress and an example of a killer pocket door.  Hope everyone had a good Memorial Day.  Back to work :)

I wanted the fireplace off center.  It allowed for one long wall of cabinetry to be run beside it and it's something a little differrent.

I adore this pocket door.  I utilized the same function for the space from my kitchen to office.  I may need to paint it a wild color. http://homes.yahoo.com/news/bob-vila-radio-pocket-doors-050035551.html
