Construction Update - My Windows Are In!

 Big construction update - my windows for my future windowseat are in! What do you think? Still a construction zone here, but the wreathes cheer things up a bit. I am so happy with how the new windows look.

The addition and ceiling are getting ready for wiring and insulation. See the new wiring to the top of the photo? A gorgeous new Craftmade ceiling fan will be going in to replace the two old "eyeball" lights that were originally in the living room.

We've decided to do a big whole-house insulation project at the same time we insulate this little addition - that's why you see all the old fiberglass insulation pulled out of our living room ceiling! Icynene Spray Foam is coming soon...

{how to light this little space?}
Here's a shot looking up in the window seat space. It will have a vaulted ceiling. I'm still trying to decide what type of lighting to do up here. Any thoughts?

Happy Holidays!


  1. Loretta you must be so excited! Your windows look fabulous and you're ging to love how warm and toasty you stay with the spray insulation. We had the spray insulation put in our carriage barn and it's tight and lets nothing in, so warm. Congratulations on your new window seating!

    Have a very Happy New Year!

  2. I love how the ceiling is vaulted inside the window !

  3. OMG - are you so tickled? So exciting!

  4. Yay Loretta!! I am so happy for your and I also adore a window seat!!

    Wishing You and Yours all the best in 2012!

  5. I am tickled! I'm waiting for a nice snowfall so I can watch from the windows. Our old city house had a side room off the living room with eight windows, and I loved how you felt like you were part of the outdoors when it snowed...

  6. Wow it is looking so beautiful. I know that you all will enjoy it so much.

  7. I cannot wait to see the final result!! I bet it gets fantastic light!

  8. Gorgeous, even with the surrounding construction.
    I've always dreamed of having my very own window seat in my home.
    Yours looks like it's bound to be a haven of happiness.
    Lots of luck, wishing you a speedy process :)

  9. I'm sure the finished window is beautiful, even if I haven't seen it yet. What color did you use for the walls around it? As for the lighting, you may try LED or fluorescent bulbs because these produce a brighter, fresher kind of light.


A comment? I'm so happy to hear from YOU!
