Progress – Crawl Space Finished!

18 05 2016

Many of you know we are having a retirement home built. (Yes, with a LARGE sewing studio above the kitchen and garage!) I’d like to show you a picture which demonstrates the progress.


The concrete footers were poured and cinder blocks were built on them. Then brick masons faced the block with brick. We selected the “Pinehurst” pattern of brick because we plan for dark green shutters which will blend with the darker bricks. The structure is chest high now, and cinder block pillars on which beams and flooring will rest are inside the walls. The baby quilts, current scrap projects, hang on the kitchen bay window area.

This is the view we’ll see from our kitchen bay window eating area. The building across the lake is a bath house hailing from the time the lake was a favorite swimming hole.


Once the foundation passes inspection, our contractor will hire framers to erect the walls. In the meantime, I need to quilt those baby quilts!
