Day 4 Of Our Queen Anne Victorian Rennovation And Life On Our Farm

Well, it is getting quite exciting now.  After four days the framers have framed in the entire expansion off the kitchen I posted about on day two and have now got alot of the big great room done off the back of the house that overlooks the Smoky Mountains.  It is beginning to take shape and we are really excited.  The framers should have the roof on the back great room by end of day today.  The fireplace folks will be out Monday to assess the stone fireplace and massive chimney that needs to be built very soon.

Here are pictures of progress as of yesterday eve.

High Ceiling – We Will Be Adding Big Exposed Beams Inside For Effect


Big Windows And French Doors Out To A Deck Are On Every Wall – The Far Diagonal Will Be A Stone Fireplace

  1. The work looks like it’s progressing well.

    Ah yes. The romantic hijinks of farm animals! I had no idea that chickens mating could cause romantic feelings in turkeys. *Sheila romps around the room doing the turkey dance* Too bad that like the turkey, no one will notice! LOL!
