So I've begun the painting and unpacking process at the same time. Not the brightest idea, but I had to break into my books before I went nuts. The house is not anywhere near done, paint wise. Still white primer on most of the walls, but that will change soon. Lots of interesting colors going on around here... Bright yellows and some interesting muted greens... My father wanted to make the color choices interesting I suppose.
Anyhow, the house is two levels plus a basement, one bedroom, two bathrooms and a conjoined living room and kitchen. My study is up in the loft, which overlooks both the stairs going down to the first floor on one side, and the living room and kitchen on the other. It's lined with built in bookcases that I had to use about 70 coats of yellow on. I've started unpacking my books, but it's a LONG process. Because my sound system is connected to my computer up in the loft, the sound in the house is amazing. It basically turns the loft into a giant speaker box. Great for doing dishes or cooking.
Normally I cover most of the windows in my computer and bedroom area, but I've done well leaving them uncovered so far. There's only woods around here, so I don't have to worry about prying eyes. It's so remote that I don't even need to worry about changing in front of the uncovered windows!
Kau-tan and my cat Nihm are adjusting well. Nimmy spent the night on my bed last night. She's a freaking tank and hates the stairs, but she's getting over herself. Maybe it will help her shed a few pounds of her massive bulk.
All right, on to the pictures... It's too far too buggy to walk around outside taking pictures of the exterior, so these are all interior shots for now. I've never seen a place so full of mosquitoes! I practically need a blood transfusion after walking the dog!
Some shots from around my bedroom: The view from one windows looks out over Pharaoh Mountain, but it's too overcast to see much in the pictures. The other looks out into the space above the living room, and it's right next to the loft.
Still a work in progress, but it's good to be here. I'll be sure to post more pictures as the desk area comes together more. ^^ I'll also try to get some good night pictures. The lighting in here is really neat. XD
