    Love the sound of loons especially early on a foggy morning.

    You want to see $10,000 worth of oak flooring? Here it is. This, and another bundle off to the side of the photo.

    The new flooring sits in the living room which has a very nice old oak floor existing that we will keep. This new oak flooring goes in the rest of the house except for one small bedroom where we’re keeping the original pine floor because it’s quaint.

    I like that there's an entryway, and I love the arched doorway. The finished house will be lovely.

    I love the fireplace. Always wished I had a working one.

    Plans to convert the fireplace to a woodburning insert? I did it with mine and can heat much of the house with it if needed and if I have the firewood.

    Lumber is pricey especially these past 20 months.

    Nope, because it was a wood-burning fireplace when we converted it to gas two years ago. I have a wood-burning fireplace in my city house and it’s nice but more trouble than I want in my old age. Supposedly the chimney does not draw very well anyway at least this is what we were told by the sellers of the house. I told them it doesn’t matter because we’re converting it to gas.

    I'm assuming those arches are original? I love them!

    And the flooring is going to be worth every penny. So exciting to see the house coming along.
