And here is is working on the outside of the window to make it wider. He used an electric saw to cut away at the clapboard.
You know what I love about it? That it's timeless. There were windows, wainscoting and tables that style in the 1800s. I definitely don't want my house to look like it's from Little House on the Prairie days but I do want it to have a simple timeless quality. I don't want to tire from it in five years, I want us to still be in love with the classic decisions we made.
I hate to waste things so I put one of the old windows to good use (our other one fell and the glass shattered). We've got a few more, anyone want a vintage window? Leave a comment on the blog if you want one!
We are lovers of light... so when we get a little more dough on our hands this is what we'll tackle next:
Can't you just picture what a nearly full length window and a french door will do to that space? Can you imagine all the light in the kitchen... ohhhh I can't wait... but I've got to...
Of course I've got to pop one more photo in for good measure. This little guy also has a fascination with light...
Signing off to do a little more work while Drew sleeps next to me, go running and read the fabulous new House Beautiful that just came in the mail today.
