A new beginning

It's been about six months since my last post.  I was sparing you the heartache of a long, wet winter without a roof.  We are now seeing lovely warm(er) days and some blue skies so hopefully the roof will be completed in the near future.  While waiting for this to happen I had to divert my attention elsewhere so this post will be all about that diversion.  It came in the form of light fixtures!

But before I get to that, I wanted to show you one of the first interior finished pieces.  This is a little exposed rafter in the master bath above a window that provided a special surprise to us.  My son helped to build this with one of our craftsman--and at age 18 it is something to be proud of and grateful for the experience of learning how to build.
When the window was cut in we realized we have a view of Puget Sound to the south.  We thought our only view would be due west but most of the maritime traffic is to the south so we now get a little peek of it each day.

Right now the masons are in the house building the fireplaces so I need to get some pictures soon since the fireplace is an important central element to most Greene & Greene homes.

Lighting the Greene and Greene Style Home

The kitchen is where I decided to start with lighting since it concerned me the most.
