Scenes From A Farmhouse-In-Progress


Princess, pounding up the stairs…..

I can hear it already. That’s her bedroom up there. And there are stairs! STAIRS!!!! I feel like I’m risking my life every time I climb the ladder up to the main floor, much less when I climb up to the third floor loft, so I was thrilled to see these stairs this week.

The upstairs bedroom is the largest bedroom in the house and a fitting boudoir for the Princess.

She wants to paint her room deep dark red. She’s very dramatic.

Here you see the dormer window where Princess will have a window seat. She’s always wanted a window seat. It’s the only thing she asked for. Oh, that and a horse….. And a new Mario game and candy and a couple of DVDs and CDs. And that was just yesterday.

There will also a big double window on the side wall.

Above, left, the living room where you can see the cathedral ceiling in the framing. There will be a double window here to the left of the front door, and above one of the dormers will let in more natural light. To the right, the back porch as viewed through the kitchen door.

One side of the wraparound porch leads to a door into the dining room.

The porch floor is finished now, waiting for the porch roof and railings and….

OHMYGOD, porch steps. And I will finally be saved from the dreaded! ladder!

You knew I couldn’t end this post today without a silly picture of one of our dogs in a costume, right?

Happy Halloween!!

    You house is coming along beautifully! My grandparents had a stretch of porch from kitchen to master bedroom. It was one of the nicest parts of the house.

    Happy Halloween!

  2. Biddy says:

    Can you adopt me please?? And then I will be able to have that room instead of the Princess (age before beauty). The house looks amazing *drools with jealousy*

    Happy Hallowe’en!

    Uh, but who will be cleaning all the windows?


  5. Suzanne says:

    LOL, Biddy!

    Kim, the windows are going to be that kind that can be flipped inside to clean! Isn’t that cool?
