I have a confession to make. I haven't been writing as passionately as I would like to be about the "Forever Home" because truthfully I am overwhelmed with all of the decisions we have to make so soon.
Who knew that such a simple thing like the placement of a window was going to be so difficult.
I am not a designer.
I am not an architect
I am not a good decision maker.
We are framing the master bedroom and the placement of the windows are very important. I am trying to think of furniture placement and the way the sun will shine in from the windows. Where will the mirror and the TV(yes we are having a TV in our bedroom, don't judge) go.
How much room do I need in the master bathroom. I want the free standing tub directly under the window. But do I want the window to go down to the tub or have it higher up since this is a ground level people can easily look in.
What kind of windows do I install. Do I want a window with a mullion in the middle or just 1 nice window that doesn't open. (the side window would open where the sitting space will be)
Branko has changed his mind on the façade of the house and is now thinking he might want Board and Batten(cedar) with stone. BUT how do we place the stone. The walk out basement is very tricky and we can only use Ledger stone.
How do I want the front over hang to look...do I want pillars or leave it?????
Ohhhh and the ceiling inside the house. We have to rip down most of the cedar ceiling to have spray foam done. I have been given the option to leave the the middle of the house with the cedar...do I whitewash that to give it a unique look or do I just rip it all down and drywall it. AND if the ceilings are going to be white what colour do I stain the beams?????
WHAT WILL BE THE EASIEST WAY TO DO THE PROJECT - this is one of our biggest obstacles. When you are working on something so grande with only 2 people some of the decisions really have to take place surrounding the level of difficulty in the work process.
At least I still know I want a grey kitchen.....
Thanks for listening friends!! Next week I will be back with Part 2 of the DIY Home Additions!!!
