Well it has been a long time since I have written in my blog. I think the move from South Carolina to Maine has encouraged me to be lazy. By lazy I mean doing my usual things in life. So rather than writing here, or anywhere, I have been spending hours, literally, at the DMV, town halls and numerous other places getting our residencies changed. Several times I have felt like heading back to South Carolina, but I guess I have too much invested in the move at this point to turn around now.

Anyway…the house is also keeping me busy. That at least is a busy that is enjoyable. I will let the recent pics of progress speak for themselves.

Back of Garage and Utility Room This pic is taken from the garage door looking across the garage to the utility room and the door leading into the house.




RW Bedroom1When you first walk into the house from the garage, if you turn to the right, that will be Wendy’s and my room. This pic is taken from the hall looking into our room.



RW Bathroom DoorRW BathroomRW Tub_ShowerThese three pics are views of our bathroom. The open area next to the tub/shower is my shower. Fixtures, grab bars and oversized drain will meet all ADA requirements and VA requirements as well.



RW BedroomThis is looking from the back corner of our bedroom back into the hall. Wendy’s closet is on the right and my closet is on the left. the room on the opposite side of the hall is the laundry room.



DenComing into the main living section of the house, all open concept, the dining area will be on the immediate left, den straight ahead and the kitchen on the right. Lots of windows here to offer lots of light from the southern exposure.

The door you see here at the end leads into Wendy’s mother’s bedroom area.


FoyerThis the opposite wall from the windows. The fireplace will be on this wall. This is also the hall leading to the library and Wendy’s dad’s bedroom. The front door and foyer is just to the right.



KitchenThis is the front door, foyer, and my brother Steve standing in the kitchen area. I’m taking this pic form the hall leading back into the garage.



The way I designed the home is that there is an open concept central living area for all of us. Wendy’s and my bedroom area is on one end of the house, and Wendy’s parents have the opposite end of the house. Built to offer all of us privacy when we want it.

This week the drywall goes up and then it will start to look more like a home. My brother and all of us will be going out this week to choose all of the light fixtures. Fun!

Hope you enjoy the pics and I will attempt to do better in keeping this relevant.
