As I mentioned in a former post, our first guests, Kim, Chuck, and their girls, stayed up there over the Labor Day weekend. And we’ve already enjoyed two Friday nights up there too, followed by Saturday morning breakfast. Grandmama and Pop came over and joined us for breakfast the last two weeks in our cozy loft.
I’m excited about the decorating part, but it will just take time since funds are low. Oh well, I will definitely have something to look forward to and will be keeping my eye out for bargains now. :)
Some of the “little” things still left to do include more trim pieces (several in the bathroom), little spaces stained where boards were cut, my bench painted and put at the foot of the bed, the chest put in the dormer window by the bed, night stands by the bed, a free standing cupboard in the kitchen (Jason will build this and I’m really looking forward to it), curtains over the bed and in the dormer window, wall décor, coffee table, rugs, a TV/DVD player………… Wow….that sounds like alot when I typed it. Oh well, we will eventually get there.
In spite of the things left to do, we’re enjoying it as it is. I can envisioning the Christmas holidays up there and enjoying my anticipated Christmas movies there as well. We just might make a regular Friday night treat out of it. It’s nice having a special retreat in our own backyard actually.
Well, I won’t keep you waiting any longer……..here’s The Cedar Loft……….
|The little spot next to the refrigerator will be the spot for the free standing cupboard.|
|Closer look at the countertops|
The bathroom…..it actually turned out to be rather roomy and especially has a cabin feel to it.
|Don't you just love Jason's toilet paper holder design? He surprised me with this!|
|One of the curtains is the shower and the one across is a double closet with a curtain in front of it.|
|My mom and dad brought this home from Alabama to add to our bathroom. I love it!|
|You can see the little spot for the cupboard here. You can also catch a glimpse of the laundry area here too.|

|I really like the way the bathroom is on an angle. It seems more roomy.|
