As you can see, I desperately needed new windows and a door. I have a great view, but looking through these old things doesn’t do it justice. So out with the old and in with the new.
Can you see the way I used to have to lock the door? Two chains and a rope; real safe! Thank goodness there is a alarm. Let me tell you what a pain it was to unhook everything just to go out and grill or water plants.
As you can see, we put a wall up and took out a couple of windows. The reason for this is I want faux stone and a wood stove. It’s going to look like this what do you think?
Now I know you are thinking, wow a red stove. Well yes, if you think about it, red goes with everything and every season. I do like the pop the red is going to give it. I am thinking of only 1 shelf on each side of the smoke stack. The wall is not big enough to handle three like they are showing.
For the windows, I wanted these check drapes. They are neutral, but I don’t know if they are still in not that I really care. I just think solid would be to plain in there. And what color white, off white or cream? See what I mean by making a decision so that’s why I was thinking of these. I so wanted the drapes to the floor, but because of the shelf I can’t and the shelf has cinder blocks behind it to hold up the windows .
Greg, the window installer, had a hard time removing the blocks from the windows near the door. He had to use a jack hammer so there is no way I was going to take the rest of the wall down.
This is the opening with the windows down.
Oh this is a random picture I took of the great view of the ducks. The windows are so clear and not like before when they were old and dingy.
Next week, I will post the furniture back in and my tree up. Yes, with only three weeks left of the season, I will put a tree up. It’s my favorite tree.
