West: To be wrapped in cedar this spring.


Hammock goes here.
Porch swing goes here.

Ash ceiling and gimbal lights

To warm up the place, I tried to add wood wherever I could. Since you can’t put hardwood flooring over infloor heat, I decided with inspiration¬† by Kate and Chuck Campbell, to put wood on the ceiling.

The ash wood was milled and finished by Bratu’s Hardwood Interiors out of Ironwood Michigan.

Gimbal lights to illuminate art work on the walls (eventually).
Gimbal lights to “graze” future Lannon stone wall behind the wood stove.
Ash ceiling on 2/3s of the room (dining and living area).


Almost finished…

Waiting for me to install the floating cork floor


Just one wall cabinet for water glasses (after I find that box in the garage).

Iron test strips.
All electric utilities.
Craigslist mirror and vanity I refinished.

Tile work by Clive Hewland. Photos don’t do it justice.
