Here we have our porch, with one of the extraordinarily comfortable moon chairs we picked up from Cabela's, and moreover, a truly ginormous spider on its web. The spider's easier to make out than the web; the sun was bright and I was using my phone.
I did have older pictures, showing the house while the downstairs was still being painted and while the carpets were still in need of replacing. But since I can't find them, here are the pictures of the interior as it is now, along with a picture of the view out our living room window, complete with a cat looking regal and a fountain behind it.
We are lords of all we survey! Literally; we can't generally see past the borders of our property. It's a bit too twilight to go wandering all over the borders, but here's a general shot or two from the porch.
The future library has purple walls and cherrywood floors. It's largeish but difficult to get a good angle on for taking a picture without doing it from outside the house. At the moment it is a repository for inflatable air mattresses and for cat supplies.
More pictures and more details in the next post.
