Pardon my absence Dear Readers, I've been off having adventures to regale you with!
While I was gone friend Kyle came to the Casablanca and installed a lovely set of screen doors on Pontipee Hall.
I know this sounds like an odd combination, after all the work that went into getting the french doors to Texas, then having them framed and installed. "SCREEN DOORS?! OVER FRENCH DOORS?!"I hear you cry-
Well it might not be in vogue, but I think its marvelous! The way the original part of the house was built in 1943, the front door faces the Southeast. This, by some miracle of early 20th century house building draws the cool breezes off of the lake. I mean really, on a day with no breeze if you stand in the door way its like being in a wind tunnel! Truly good old fashioned know how. Well when we planned out the addition this never even crossed my mind, but the french doors face exactly the same way and angle of the front door and draw a wonderful breeze. So now with the screens to keep bugs out, its quite wonderful to sit in living room at nite and read a book under the glow of the Sputnik or play a round of cards!
Little by little progress ebbs on, I'm hoping to make some real leaps and bounds over the summer! Saving my pennies and pay checks for some of the bigger projects, I hope to have real paint-able walls by labor day!
Hope all is well with the rest of my Blogger Buddies!
