New House Photos 10-31-2014

This week we see the gas lamps are installed, and the kitchen cabinets and fireplace is in progress.  Next week we should see the upper cabinets complete, fireplace complete, and hopefully the start painting.

Below are our latest photos.


The Bevolo gas lanterns are installed.  Danyale and Ellen chose the French Quarter 24″.

 


These two photos show the lower cabinets being installed in the Kitchen.  In the second photo you can see they have made the cut for the pass-through between the Appliance Pantry and the Kitchen. Our cabinet designer, Rodney, has designed a sliding shelf where heavy things like a kitchenaids or gumbo pots can be slid from the Appliance Pantry into the Kitchen.  It will all be concealed by the upper cabinets which Ellen and Rodney have designed to fold up and out of the way when in use.

 


Fire place is still under way.  Its being build by the same Romanian masons who created our balcony columns.  I believe all they have left to do is create the leaf scroll work on the left and right sides.

Its been a long time since our last update on our Lanes End construction project.  Things were going slow for a while. The tile floors are installed; cabinets are installed in the office, bathrooms, master closet, living room, food pantry, applicant pantry, mail drop, and laundry room. The iron railing on the balcony and stairs are complete.  So is the exterior paint.  This coming week should see the gas lamps installed as well as the kitchen and bar cabinets… If we are lucky maybe even the fireplace.

Below are our latest photos.


The balcony railing and exterior paint  is complete.

These photos are not the best, but they try to show the two built-in dressers in the master closet.

 


Here are the stairs.

Its been a long time since our last update on our Lanes End construction project.  Exterior columns are up, wood floors are down, interior brick arches are complete, tile is being installed in all the bathrooms, cabinetry for the whole house  is being designed.  Ellen and Danyale are working on colors and fabrics.  Its all starting to come together.

Below are our latest photos.


The balcony columns are complete, one layer of color coat has been applied to the front stucco.  Ellen and the iron guy are working on the iron railing for the balcony.


Here is an exterior shot of the Master Bedroom sitting area.


Another shot from the back yard looking at the outdoor living area.  Antique beams are up, brick fireplace and arch are complete.  Danyale and Ellen decided to paint the back doors instead of staining them.


Here you see the outdoor fireplace, and towards the right you see the large brick arch.  Eventually we will have a grill and smoker built into a brick counter under the arch.  Work on that will not begin until much later.


The brick arches between the Dining Room and Foyer are complete, and the antique pine floors are down.  The floors will be sanded and finished closer to completion.


Here is a shot of the Dining area that shows the brick and floors coming together.  The shot also shows the interaction between the Foyer, Dining Room, and Kitchen.


This is a shot coming down the stairs looking towards the Kitchen.


Here is an inside shot of the sitting area inside the Master Bedroom.  Danyale and Ellen have big plans for the window treatments and fabrics for this area.


Its hard to take photos of the Master Bath.  This shot shows the arches between my area, the tub and shower area, then Danyale’s area deeper into the photo.


Here is the wall at Ellen’s Office where the girls are choosing and coordinating all wall colors, fabric, tile, etc. for the whole house.  When I took this photo we were still driving around with Anna Catherine’s fabrics in the car.  A day or so after this photo was taken, Ellen pinned up all the choices for Anna Catherine’s room.  They were very pretty, I wish I had a photo including her colors.

Our new house construction on Lanes End is well underway.  This week the antique wood beams were installed, exterior doors stained,  and the outdoor fireplace is coming along.  Next week should begin installation of insulation, sheetrock, and we should finish up the last few sections of exterior brick.

Below are the latest photos:


Stained Doors

First up we see the newly stained french doors. Danyale wanted a dark stain, I really like what she chose. I can’t wait to see the front of the house once the brick is installed and painted, and the color coat is applied to the stucco arches.
 


Under Soffit Details

Next up we see the penetrations for the soffit mounted architectural lighting, and soffit mounted electrical receptacle. Anthony is placing architectural lighting at key exterior locations. Also, we planned to have several hidden receptacles for holiday lighting.
 


Ceiling Boards

Here we see a stack of old cypress boards that will be used for the patio and outdoor living room ceiling.
 


Exposed Beams

Next we see two of the exposed antique pine beams delineating the kitchen, dining room, and living room.
 


Outdoor Fireplace

Here is our poor old outdoor fireplace. Its been redone so many times, nuances between the plans and real life caused some rework, but Anthony found a solution and its moving in the right direction. Soon it will be bricked in. I can’t wait to see the finished product, this outdoor space may be my favorite part of the house.
 


Back Door to Bar

This photo shows the back door leading to the bar and kitchen. Danyale planned to paint these doors, but they have been stained. We all think they look good, so we will leave them stained.
 


New House

Finally, we see the front of the house again. This time the doors are stained, second floor stucco has its color coat, the first floor arches have their architectural details added, and scratch coat installed. We are awaiting brick installation under the porch, and color coat on the first floor stucco.

Happy Mother’s Day – Part 1

Happy Mother’s Day everyone, I hope each of you have a wonderful day.

Isn’t it amazing how one little person can change your whole world.  I’ve been looking through photos and thinking about how well Danyale has adapted to being a Mother.  I’ve watched her over the years care for her nieces and cousins with amazing thoughtfulness and compassion.  I had no doubt she would be a good mom when her time came, but it’s truly amazing to witness how one little person has transformed my wife… forever.

Years ago I joked with Danyale about how I wished she would grow up and became a responsible mother; waking up earlier, fixing breakfast, planning her day, being responsible, being less random, less sporadic. Well that day has come and it’s a beautiful thing.

Speaking of beautiful, in celebration of Mother’s day, I’ve put together a 5 part photo series photos showing Danyale in action.  Each day between Sunday and Thursday, four – never seen before photos will be released.  I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.
