Amen sister !!

I so happy for you, Sue. The large basement windows need to be that thermopane glass or it will cost you a lot of lost heat. But if you plan on doing a lot of living in the basement you will be very glad for the light from those windows. Where will the garage be? I didn't see it as part of the basement. Or will it be a separate structure? Hopefully with some sort of closure between it and the house. Ours is like that. A porch type short hallway that is totally closed but has a door on each end.

none of ur business, OK(Zone 5b)

No we didn't do a garage
but we plan on doing a barn in the near future.
good to know on the window
yes we are going to do alot in the living in the basement LOL
we will have a front porch and a back porch
those will be nice to have
take care
good night
im pooped :)

Winters like you picture and no garage? What are you thinking, Sue? I really don't know how you manage in such weather without one. Guess I'm just old, soft, & spoiled.

Biggs, KY(Zone 6a)

Fantastic! Squared logs with dove tailed ends! I love those. Keep the pics coming.

none of ur business, OK(Zone 5b)

Yeah we like them dovetails too.
Leaf yes it will be hard with out a garage ,but we are hoping for a barn in the next few yrs.
Just think of all the caloies i will burn chipping off the ice this winter LOL

The house looks great. Moving right along. Good idea for using the scraps. Is it for flowers or veggies?

Hey Sue - the place looks gorgeous!!!! I've been busy with clients so haven't had time to post, but have been lurking. Seems like you went through such a long time with nothing happening on the property, and now POOF! It's wonderful!

none of ur business, OK(Zone 5b)

Cajun i am thinking of potatos for that bed.
going to add some aged manure and straw. till it , them plant the potatos.
Good to see you Robin !!! I missed you :)
spent 4 hrs with builder to make final plans on kitchen .
he drew out everything on the floor lol so i could see it all and where the placement is
still have a question on the island. it seems soooo big and the one corner seems to stick out in an awkward way ? but to get the 45 angle we need it has to be that way. Hmmm . i really don't want a rectangular. not fen shui :) lol
I still wish i could have a flat island to do baking buuuuutt the realization is company always sits at your kitchen, never in your dining room . So i am designing the kitchen for people to sit and gather while i cook. So the stove top is in the island. also very fen shui. LOL
i also told him no number 13 ! the basement has 14 he got lucky there. He added on extra step for me at the bottom to make 14.
yep i know i am crazy but why take chances. LOL
take care

Hi Sue :) I've been so busy with clients that I've not had a chance to catch up on all the threads yet - eek! I LOVE the house!! What colors did you eventually decide to go with??

none of ur business, OK(Zone 5b)

dark green roof with windows same color
I have to pick out some vinyl flooring . sheesh. More decisions . I m soooo not good at this stuff. trying to match things up and visual them in my head and hope they match. It hurts my head to think so much LOL . :)
