This house project is really stressing me out, so much so that I went in for my first acupuncture session today. I must say, I left feeling very relaxed. Let’s hope that carries through the week.

Last Friday (Day 89) left us with the framing for our downstairs half-bath and pantry, right off the kitchen. It was really exciting to see this completed, as it really gives you a sense of what the kitchen/pantry will feel like.

Sorry for the camera-phone photos. They’re not as sharp as I’d like them to be.

The other major framing was done in our room (also as of last Friday, Day 89.) Unfortunately, due to a miscommunication between Ben and the carpenter, the wall frame was built all the way up to the trusses, instead of only going as high as the opposite wall. We’re going to have a bit of an open loft feel in the house, in that the master bedroom will have a wall that does not reach all the way up to the cathedral ceiling, but rather ends at about 7 feet tall. We figure that will allow more heat and light to circulate, keeping the house more comfortable. It may also mean slightly less privacy, but hey, we’re a family–who needs privacy? (kidding!) And anyway, I don’t think we’d find much of it in this tiny house anyway….

I’m sorry if this isn’t clear. I’m too tired to make more sense of it, but maybe Nick will clarify for you, or take some better pictures tomorrow. I’m off to watch the latest Project Runway episode before passing out.
