Work has begun

Work has begun on the bookshelves! Two super-nice guys from Carterworx – a small local company – have been here all week.

I gotta say, my inner cheapskate really cringed at having to pay someone to do work that really, I could have done myself… but I’m so, SO glad I did. Because these guys are perfectionists.

They’re doing a much better, much sturdier job than I would have.

It’s amazing to see something that was on paper for two years, taking shape before my eyes.

    Congratulations! It will be gorgeous when it’s finished and filled with books!

    Will the shelf where Sofia is standing in front of the windows also be a curl-up-and-read pillow covered bench? I imagine in winter it would be too cold, but in the summer long afternoons?
    (I always wanted a window lit “book nook” .)

    That’s the idea! The way the window latches are so close to the sill I think it can’t have seat cushions, but I can scatter pillows for sure.

    Okay, you’ve left me hanging long enough…. Where are the pics of the finished product????

    Ha! I’m still priming and sanding and caulking and mudding and sanding some more! It’s gonna be like another week! 😀 (I can’t WAIT for it all to be done already!!)
