At last!

After four months of construction dust and piles of furniture in rooms where they don't belong, our remodeling project is finished (for the most part -- one small thing left to wrap up).

A brief reminder of the "before" -- two rooms, covered in paneling and indoor/outdoor carpet, divided by a big awkward closet:


And here's the after shot (taken from the same viewpoint):


Nice wood-burning stove at the end of the room. We're anxious for colder weather so we can give it a try, but we're a little nervous. I bought a fire extinguisher this afternoon. (And yes, those are rabbit ears on our television -- we've decided we're too cheap to pay for cable anymore.)

New couches and rug:

Bookshelves at the north end of the room:

And we have plenty of room for our random antique office supplies and fans:


The cats seem to approve:

Looks awesome! I would love to see the rest of your house.

Em,
Do you have an e-mail address? Did you know we moved? I have something I would like to share with you sometime. E-mail me @ squigs21@sbcglobal.net when you get a chance.
