What a Week It Was - August 23 to August 28

This past week has been a period of transformation.  By Wednesday, August 25, we had a large portion of the upstairs completely framed.  The large void in the center is the Great Room.  At this time we were still debating whether to have a 10 ft. ceiling or a 12 ft ceiling in the Great Room.
The Dining Room, the room behind the large opening, has a 12 ft. ceiling, as does the Foyer.

The Master Bedroom has a 10 ft. box ceiling.

Finally, we had to make a decision so that Red and his crew, the framers, could complete the main level of the house.
With a lot of help from Red and Steve we decided to go with the "LODGE LOOK."  The cathedral ceiling is 17 ft. tall and extends out over the deck.  We will have four windows and a door along the floor and then 3 more windows above the floor windows.  Everyone that has seen the view from the entry is impressed.

This is the front of the house and gives you the view upon entering the Lakeview Dream.

This picture was taken from our boat on Bull Shoals Lake.  We were cruising the main channel that is in many of our background shots from the house.

The back yard wood pile continues to grow.

To complete a very exciting week, on Friday the floor for the garage and the Mule Room was poured.
