This is now the living room, the side that faces the back part of our house, sometime in aug 2003. I love the french doors opening to the same spot where the FD of our master bedroom opens too (in the future, there will be a deck there, leading to an elevated pool). <br>br>The kids used the area as their sleeping space initially. (The second floor had no partitions yet, and there was no stairway going up at the time.)

This was the side that faced the front and the west end of the house then. Noticeable here is the absence of insulation (it was Fall).

Then later, Gary put up the insulation on the ceiling, using the staging to reach it...

I continued with the insulation (it kept me busy during those boring winter days) on the walls. Then Gary put this furnace in place (for additional heat. The furnace in the garage is the main heat generator.)

Then Gary worked on adding the plastic sheeting running from the ceiling down to the walls. Posted by Hello

Gary is installing the cooking range here...behind him is the area where we would have the sink and countertop.

This was the kitchen area then (no stairs leading to the 2nd floor yet, no sink, no countertop.)

This photo was taken around Jan 2004...Gary had installed the sink, the dishwasher and cooking range, I had finished putting up the insulation but not the plastic sheeting.)

This is the wash-bathroom downstairs, first to be encountered when one enters the house from the garage. In September of last year, the washer and dryer were installed....

Sometime last January, the walls surrounding it were put up (plus the toilet for the room was also installed.

Though there were changes in the interior floor plan, we actually followed the original, and the following external features will be added sometime in the future...
A porch in front of the kitchen, plus a sunroom annexed to the living room...
