SOME MORE PICS TO SHARE

Wow! Happy Friday everyone - this week just flew by!!! We have been super busy trying to get ready for the movers coming in on Monday - in fact, the entire weekend will be spent cleaning all the construction dust out of the house and putting up the final trim so we can be ready. I am sooooo excited that I am actually going to get to move into my new home next week although I will be mad busy trying to get it ready for the impending holidays and my family coming in for Christmas. My son will be arriving on the 12th and then my mom and sister will come in on the 20th so we will have a house full. It will be fun though! Meanwhile, I have a couple more pics of the house to share with you - I know, it's not a project, but this is what I have right now!
The first picture shows the beginnings of our front yard. Tony put grass down so we would get a yard started that can be finalized in the spring. It is really starting to look nice and as you can see, there are five huge natural boulders in a circle that we plan to utilize as an area to sit around an outside fire pit. There will be a small deck out there as well. Where the dirt is, the sidewalks will be installed and that should be happening fairly soon. The next picture is the great room which is being seen from the foyer as you walk into the house. I absolutely love this room because it is so large and bright from all the windows. I love the stepped ceilings, they really add to the room. We also had a french doors added to the back of the room so that we can have a deck off the back as well. We want to enjoy all of the views that we can! The third picture shows the beautiful view I have from my new scrap room! Aren't these windows just gorgeous! I love them! I will have the views of the mountains as I sit there at my desk and I am sure it will provide wonderful inspiration for me! The only problem is, I may never want to leave that room - LOL! So, these are what I have to share today! Have a fabulous weekend and stay tuned - I am getting really close to 7500 hits and that means yep, BLOG CANDY!!!!

Looks like to me you found a very special spot to build you home. The setting is so nice Alex, my cup of tea! Ahhhh the corner windows and the sills are just way cool for "your creative space"! Are you having custom built work areas and storage made for your room? Now would be the time! I am very happy for you! Hugs, Deb
