I spent many late nights at the house trying to get things done and by doing so I had the privilege of being the first person to sleep there. It was actually supposed to be a 'sit-down-on the-threshold' sort of a rest but it turned into a 'fall-asleep-in-sitting-position-and-fall-over-backwards' sort of event. The sudden thwack of the floor on the back of my head woke me up and convinced me to turn off the power tools and go home.
A work mate of mine offered to help out by installing the front door. He did this on the day we moved in.
This is what it looked like when we moved in. Isn't the floor dirty?
Did I mention that the bamboo flooring takes a long tome to install?
The trick with ledge stone is to keep to a horizontal line. The linear aspect enhances the proportion of the space. The larger stone at the base gives a solid feel to the wall.
I love the warmth of the stone. This is going to be a magnificent place to sit and enjoy.
That's all for now. Hopefully I will have time to blog a bit more in future. The last few months of last year were hectic beyond belief.
