With so much going on these days, when I look at the cats...I want to trade places with them. They seem so content living inside the small cottage as they view the outside world, from the screen door.Old Tom, going into his 18th year, love a good box to sleep in, with newspaper or magazines to lay on. And to think some people buy special beds for their cats! He's always been so content & simple.
Hardwicke House Renovation/Addition
I stopped in this Saturday morning to find Jeff, the kitchen guy, working on the IKEA cabinet assembly. He said the first one was a challenge, then he was on to how the assembly was done.
In all fairness the fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, & 3 large pendent lights are also there.
But remember Bill & Nick did deliver, 190 IKEA boxes! lol
See the stack of wood trim behind them? This week the doors & trim are being installed as well as the priming paint on all the walls.
I met with Leopold, the painter & I have till Tuesday to pick all the colours. The one thing I'm sure of is all trim will be Benjamin Moore, Cloud White & all the doors will be HC - 166 kendell charcoal.
I'm leaning on this colour for the stairs, not light, not dark, but warm & rich in its hue.
A Kitchen Surprise! :-(
Yes a surprise to me indeed! With the black slate floor just outside the kitchen, it may look lighter than it does right now. And the grout will be dark on both floors, I've hindsight with that detail!
It will have slate tiles, on a diagonal, going down the hall. All doors will be grey & the trim is white. This is the area that I want the Smoke& Mirrors colour.
The second story will have a tempered glass railing & stainless supports.
Down The Hall...
I have lawns to mow later this afternoon, so I'll be taking it in with a smile. Julia, you were right, I do enjoy the mowing of the lawns now. My kind of outdoor activity. lol
The elevator is to the left, with the contractors signature - two board not fall into the pit. lol
The glass railing will wrap around the opening, right to the old part of the house. A glass garden door will be installed at the end. The large opening on the right is the stained glass studio & it too will have double glass doors, opening to the studio.
This room awaits you! XO
With the weather being so beautiful today, I took my 1996 Mustang Cobra for a drive to the Hardwicke House for these photos, then Picked up my girlfriend Heather & drove to Escuminac Wharf & took in a yard sale on the way back.
It's a loud car & has a lot of horse power.
Heather commented on the noise from the engine. lol
I hope you enjoyed your visit here on the east coast today.
Thank you for stopping by & have a great weekend!
