Building our
new home
-- Interior walls are up!! --


On Monday and Tuesday, 3 and 4 March, the framing crew put up the interior walls and now the house is starting to look like a house.  Here are photos of the interior -- you'll need to use your imagination in a few places.

The center of the house is a great room measuring 40 feet long by 28 feet wide.  This photo is taken standing with my back to the front wall looking toward the rear of the house. 

  • The big opening on the left is the 6-foot wide French door that goes onto the back porch. 
  • The window to the right of the French door is a 4-foot X 4-foot casement window that will be in front of the kitchen sink.  The dishwasher will be to the left of the sink.
  • The main part of the kitchen will run along the wall where you see a black tool belt lying on the sub-floor -- along that wall will be a gas cooktop, refrigerator, and cabinets.


This is looking at the same kitchen corner as in the above photo.  On the other side of the kitchen wall is a bedroom that is in the right rear corner of the house with a door that opens onto the back porch.


This photo is taken looking at the opposite wall from the two photos above. 

  • The window opening on the right edge is another casement window that will be beside the French door. 
  • In the corner ( where the green piece of Zipwall is standing ) will be a double electric oven with counter running to the right, beneath the window. 
  • Look at the tools piled up on the sub-floor -- these tools are lying inside a door opening -- this is a 3-foot wide pocket door that opens into a large pantry.  
  • To the left of the pantry is a hallway going toward the master bedroom.  To the left of the hallway is the laundry room.
