Our House

For a long time now, I have wanted us to add a sunroom onto our house. We got with a builder and starting discussing what I wanted. And at some point during our discussions, I told him that I wanted a large storage room so that I could have a place to store my FULLY DECORATED Christmas trees!!!! (I have several large ones that I put up each year and it is so time consuming to decorate them and then un-decorate them!) I have wanted a room like this for years!! And then we decided to add a small alcove off of the sunroom. And then I decided that I wanted a small front porch. And then I had to get a new front door. And then I decided to re-do the foyer! So this project has just grown and grown and grown! It is a fun time--but a stressful time, too! I know it will all be worth it in the end, but oh the mess, the 'strange' men wandering around, the noise, etc. etc. etc...



I thought I would post pics from time to time of the on-going process.
