|Our New Home|
|Living Space for Six!|
I'm loving my new gas cooktop and in fact have more mushrooms to saute tonight as I've done for the last three nights. Most of the kitchen including my sprout garden is on wheels and so it can be moved around as needed.

The new 1/2 bath and closet on the laundry side of the room have been framed out. The laundry sink will be next to the washer, with just a wall between, and a lovely window above it. The toilet will be on the other side, hidden by the pocket that will hold the pocket door. It is small, but functional and several of us will be glad when that is in! Then next to that, just behind the pink door in the photo below, will be a small broom closet. The bathroom will be green as it was before and the broom closet will be yellow. I may have a two room house now, but that won't stop me from having a rainbow house! Instead of 6 rooms with 6 colors, I will have two rooms, a 1/2 bath, and 3 closets! But the rainbow will remain!

And across the "hallway" from the broom closet and 1/2 bath there will be the purple closet. The old purple closet had a boxed in area with three entrances so that Laoise could have her very own cubby (which she frequently shared with Thackeray), and rest assured, dear Laoise, your cubby will return in the new purple closet. Eventually, all the kitty walks will return as well and they will add more rainbow flavor to it all.
|See what use is made of open space!|
As I mentioned earlier, nature abhors a vacuum so my living room now serves as a viable construction zone. After all, all the pets and I need is the kitchen and then on weekends, the laundry, so the rest is fair game, first come, first served.
Not much here except exterior siding, roof plywood, and lots of studs, but this makes it easy for both my plumber, who will be putting in a sprinkler system, and my electrician, who has already removed most of the old faulty wiring and who will be re-wiring the house to code, properly, and with things where I want them!
This shows both the purple closet and the yellow broom closet and green 1/2 bath in one view from the kitchen. It will be really wonderful when it is done, functional the way we use it, and fun as well.
