Disclaimer: this post is loooooong. BUT there are pictures galore, so that should make up for it. Dad and I visited the lake house last weekend to try and nail out some details about lighting fixtures/placement and plumbing woes. I haven't been up there since probably November or late October and they have made some serious progress! April is our goal to finish the basement.
A glimpse of the old windows and the beautiful sasanqua in bloom. It kind of makes me sick to know that it is gone, but it was blocking the entire bedroom window :( Oh, and that's my baby brother, Travis.
New windows/door, new light. We decided to go with casement windows with no grills to optimize day light and views. Plus, we live a simple life up here. No cable, no internet, no window grilles :) Just books, sun, naps, eating and movies. Usually in that order.
newly expanded future bathroom.
The upstairs guest bedroom is filled with mattresses waiting for a home. The king will be going in the water-facing bedroom in the basement. The back bedroom with be home to several sets of bunk-beds immigrating from my brothers' rooms at home.
Eileen (old habits die hard, I still can't work without her) we (mostly) nailed down a lighting scheme for the basement main room. Orders have been placed for the sink, bathroom lights, faucets, barnwood...progress is being made.
