I have paid a lot of attention on this blog to the energy and environmental performance features and their progress. But how is the place looking? You can always get the latest exterior shots on the “Construction Progress” page, but I haven’t posted many interior images yet. With the hanging and finishing of the sheetrock over the past week or so, the interior is really starting to come together. Here are a couple of pictures:
The is what you’ll see when you first walk in the front door. The living/dining area is straight ahead, and the stairs are to your left. There is a protective covering over the stairs now, but they will be open so you’ll be able to see through them when we’re done.
Here’s the view from the kitchen. From here, about where the kitchen sink will be, you’ll look out over the dining area and out to the landscaped yard beyond. A fence and landscaping will block the view of the neighbor.
There is a large landing at the top of the stairs that can be used as a sitting or office area. It is open to the two-story volume for lots of light.
There’s still a lot of finish work to do but I’m quite pleased with how the space is coming together.
