We are finally upstairs with our tape measure since the stairs were built last week. Here's a little peak for you. Actually, don't blink or you'll miss the tour.
This little apt. is all one room broken up into areas. The bedroom and bathroom have doors (of course) but the rest is all open. Love, love and love some more these nice big windows. The cats will be able to watch the birds in the tops of the near-by maples. They'll love that.
I, will get to sit at the table for two with my tea and admire the view.
Above, to the left is the dining area window. The right is the bedroom window.
Here's looking out the bedroom window to the road.
Now you see the bathroom to the right and the sitting area to the left. You can see where the stairs to the garage are just below the left window.
The cats will have a cat-door that will allow access to the garage while supervised. When we don't want them down there we just close the door.
The insulation and dry-wall will happen soon.
We had the garage floor poured this week.
Pex-pipes installed for when we want to heat the floor.
Planing the floor.
I'll be adding a window-seat for the kitties .
It's still very messy out here.
We will have mud until they arrive with our gravel for the drive-way.
That happens tomorrow.
You should see my boots....ahhhhh!
Heaters were put on to help keep the cement floor warm.
Without that you worry about cracks developing.
This is the view from the garage window tonight.
I will show you the kitchen corner and the view from that window next time.
The Chickadees are making good use of the suet and seeds.
I couldn't leave without placing one little Christmas decoration in our teeny mouse-house.
sits on my kitchen window frame.
I just felt it needed some Christmas
spirit up there.
So that's the mouse house today. It will look very different by next week.
Before signing off, I want to give you...
an easy apple pie
9 inch pie pan
375 - 400 degrees
1 3/4 cups of pealed, sliced apples
1/2 c sugar
1 tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
3 tabs of butter
pastry for double-crust pie.
Combine first four ingredients. Prepare pie shell. Fill with apple mixture. Dot with butter. Cover with top crust. Slit with knife to allow steam to escape. Bake 'til filling bubbles and crust is golden.
This one is out of the Canadian Mennonite Cook Book. Well worn, mine is.
I think it's time to put the kettle on.
Wishing all my American friends a Very Happy Thanksgiving.
