The Infamous House

Daughter Carrie and husband Andrew are  building a house.  You may remember 4 months ago when they decided to sell theirs so they put it up on the market.  the first day, the first person gave them full asking price and it was sold!

But they had nowhere to live!  So they split their weeks between us and Andrew's parents out in Plaquemine on the bayou.  Not too bad on us, but I am sure very difficult for them not having a place of their own.

Four months, she assured me.  Well we are coming up on the four month mark and I wanted to show you what the house looks like as of today.

Don't get me wrong, it will be a showplace.  She designed the entire house, the flow of electrical current and water through the house; the pitch of the roof and the shape of the doors and windows; the double fireplaces and the 8 foot by 8 foot kitchen island that will create beautiful food from the pantry that spans an entire wall.

She put everything she ever wanted into this house!  And it will be a showplace for sure.

 One of the 4 or 5 bedrooms but this one goes out over the garage space. 

This is the master bedroom's vaulted ceiling.  It goes up nearly 20 feet.

And these two photo are the main room or great room and the patio cover in the back yard.  You can see through the fireplace and see where the patio roof is attached.  The fireplace is a double back to back with one in the room and one on the patio. 

This great room will have sliding barn doors that will be able to close the space off to quell noise or just to separate the kitchen areas from the living and dining areas.

Who would have thought that Carrie, of all people, would be designing barn doors!
