AND THE FUN BEGINS...STEP ONE

It will be a long few weeks!  Waiting for the  work to begin is hard for me.  For a girl who has  NO PATIENCE, I'm holding up pretty good!
I think MC is actually proud of me.  I haven't been TOO unmanageable.

STEP ONE

 

  David and his crew will probably start working on the shower and the French Doors the week of Labor Day.  Availabilities of products, weather and subcontractor's schedules all play important roles in the big picture.....
19 days!  Hopefully will be the formal start!
That's not TOO LONG!  Well not long for most.  It was over two months ago when this project was literally "BORN"!  (by that I mean MC going along!)
In Reality,  The "Epiphany" was created  (in my head)   not long after we moved in!  It took all this time to get it going.

Meanwhile, we do have a small element complete!  Remember I saw the possibility of a wine bar in the built-ins?  I restyled the cabinet on the "outside" side of the wall.   This will be just a few steps from the new French Doors!  We also added a wine refrigerator under the cabinet.  It holds just the right amount of white wine bottles. 

 It took a lot of research, but MC found one on line that "fit".  The space was very small!  It had  to be less than 15" width and not too deep....leaving room to fit in the space.






added design feature....
You can store open bottles upright!!

WE ARE ON OUR WAY


LET THE PARTIES BEGIN

  5. I think the most exciting part of any project is the anticipation and the planning. Your home is beautifully styled, Patty, and I'm excited to follow your progress.

    1. FLASH,
      MC has agreed to construct a wine rack that will hold a case of wine in the cubby that now has the small wine holder. That small holder will move up to the middle cubby.
      Things evolve around here at a fast pace!!!

  7. Patty, I also pictured french doors there because I didn't have the sunroom either. Just may do it in my new house in Texas. I know you are going to love the glamour shower, makes all the sense in the world, no ledge to trip on when getting in the shower. Can't wait to see the finished product. Kudos to MC for finally giving in...
