After the workers finished up this afternoon, David and I took a stroll over to the new house. We were pleasantly surprised to see that we now have stairs to go to the second floor.
In this photo, I am upstairs overlooking the living room/kitchen. The upstairs also is home to the guest bedroom, office, guest bath and my favorite room, the "sleeping porch."
This is a room that I am particularly excited about. As you can probably see, there are windows on three sides of this room, with a large patio door that will lead out onto a second floor deck over our master bedroom. The views from this room are to the south (looking at the woods behind what will become a native grass prairie), and to the west over the existing tall grass prairie with a view toward I-94. I anticipate many quiet summer evenings sipping an adult beverage on this deck while watching the fireflies in the trees.
