It's far from complete, of course, but the three new ell walls are up and define the size of the new living room. We can now stand inside the room and see where the windows and doors are, and what the view is like from the windows. This is the side where the porch will… Continue reading A new room
The basement's back wall is now taking shape, so that you can see where the windows and doors will be.
