Here’s an (admittedly not very good) photo of the old bedroom windows yesterday, with Davy peeking in. He’s standing on the scaffolding outside. Tom had already stripped off all the trim.
And here’s the opening today, minus the windows and most of the wall. Enlarged, in fact, almost from floor to ceiling. The plastic isn’t the easiest thing to see through, but it’s keeping my bedroom and the rest of house fairly tidy.
Earlier today Tom and his assistant built the bump-out that will extend the window area by several feet, because the final vision is a bay window with window seat. I’ve asked Tom if the bottom part of the window seat can be open shelving, since I’m thinking it would be a good place to store more (shh….) books.
Speaking of views, this is what we’ve been seeing from the kitchen window all winter in the evenings. It’s enough to make you think we’re raising deer, not cattle.
