Yesterday I left you
by the backdoor
looking towards the front of the house.
To the left where the seeded glass panels are
is where the steps
lead to the upstairs area.
This old salt greets you in a niche
that is just his size.
If you look to the right you will see
A GLASS GARDEN POCKET DOOR
that disappears into the wall
but can be closed off to
separate the upstairs and guest bedrooms
from the noise of the downstairs.
Also, this area has it's own zone
for heating and cooling.
Down the main hall I created
two insets in the drywall to hold
Grandmother & Grandfather Kos's portraits.
Those are the only family pictures I left out.
Not sure why the painting looks spotty
on the wall-
it must be the lighting/reflections.
I had a hall closet taken out and
built a server in for guests.
There is a mini-fridge underneath.
To the left that little corner you see is
a laundry chute..which is tiled.
This used to be a bedroom but we are using
it as a sitting room and once in a while
Lulu sleeps on the
sectional in here.
There is a smaller bedroom that
SweetCheeks and Ria
have claimed for their own.
This is the bathroom that serves
those two bedrooms.
The fixtures through the whole house are
Kohler Coastal Series
Those two bedrooms are on the front of the house.
The old master/now guest room en suite
is on the back of the house and
opens to a small balcony
that overlooks the bay.
We used lots of mirrors wherever we could
to bring the bay/outdoors in-
so that you could see the water no matter
which way you were looking.
I can see where I missed a few 'touches'
here and there..
but it is what it is...
This is the bathroom for the master.
This bathroom has solid brass antique fixtures
and was the only variation from the
Kohler series we used throughout.
You can't see it here but the mirror
and fixtures are also burnished with
antique brass touches.
So---I think that is it for the upper level.
I will be around tomorrow to
finish up the tour
of the lower level.
Thanks for all the kind comments you have been leaving!
