The roof is going on.
Here's the studio - roof on - looking out the hole that still remains where the fireplace will go. Eventually.
Below, the cathedral-ceilinged bedroom stands out, as the main roof is still off. The Dulles Airport-like roof to the right of the bedroom is over the porch, and will tie into the main roof.
I find it amazing to look at this structure! Here's the bedroom ceiling close up.
The courtyard is finally frozen hard enough to walk without accumulating heavy pancakes of mud on my wellies. Below: a view from the courtyard out to the front.Meanwhile, I look forward to seeing the front "yard" restored to meadow clearing - minus construction skiffs and lumber stores and scraps. I've been haunting all the garden catalogues and trying out a million and one colour and plant combinations in my mind. How's this one for a gorgeous day dream: a wildflower field of Queen Anne's Lace, Echinacea, and Cosmos? oooooooh! gorgeous. . . . .
