Here are me and the boys just pleased as punch with the new progress:
Our framer added a little space to our keeping room for us - and although it messed with a couple of other things, we are pleased with the new space and look at anything it messed with as an opportunity. Being pretty flexible has made this process much easier. Of course, so has having an OPEN floor plan. If we had to make things match up perfectly with a million different rooms, it wouldnt have worked.
What I love about the roof is that now that you dont just see sky, you focus on the windows as that is where the light is coming from and you really see the views - The view from our room is incredible. Binoculars is on my list to bring next time....I want to see how far I can see ;)
The roof on also gives you the feel of a warehouse - which is what we were going for! J and I always had planned to raise kids at some point in the heart of the city (a city) in a loft. That is not in the plans and then we looked into moving a building (cost prohibitive) so we decided we would just build our own little warehouse. You just dont ever know if the way it feels in your head will play in real life - if it will feel as good - but this feels so much better....
Bunches of things will start happening soon, so we will keep yall updated on our "coolers" progress....
I wonder if Budweiser would pay us to paint the side to look like their cooler....we could auction off the naming rights ;)
Happy Happy New Year yall - Pray, Praise and Prepare in 2009!
