The new stairs from the existing garage into the new garage.
I am standing in the far corner of my new space to take this shot. The half wall will be on the other side of this stack of wood. It will allow light from that huge window to come into the space. The room is 14 x 15. The existing window will be removed and an arched entryway will be installed. So my current 14 x 15 room will double. Perfect for teaching and designing. ;)
The new profile of the front of the house. We are adding faux rock to the bottom half of the walls on the front of the house and onto the columns on the front porch. Just a warmer look and to break up all the brown. ;)
The new profile from the back of the house. All the junk that doesn't fit in the current garage space we have. It will all have a new home soon. I think expanding the deck and fencing the backyard will be our next projects. ;) Shhhh.. don't tell Robert. ;)

Oh and I forgot to post this photo on friday. This is what I saw coming down the stairs just before 7 a.m. A momma moose and her twin calves in our neighbors front yard. Soaking up the warm morning sun. Then they started eating his newly landscaped bushes. Why can't they eat the 'free', wild trees? ;) Hope you have a good evening!

It is really special that so many friends and family called me today. It was pretty uneventful. We signed Cody up for his junior year at Dimond High School. Then, during lunch, he reminded me that he needed his 'real' driver's license. The 6-month provisionals on his temp license had expired. :) Well, guess what, my license expired today also. So, off to the DMV we went. A very quick 30 minutes later we were done. We headed home late this afternoon after a few more errands and had a yummy chocolate cake with my parents. Marissa finished the icing on her piece and then tried to eat grandma's as well. :) My hubby surprised me with a pile of new clothes and a great Coach travel bag. We are heading to a resort in Arizona in October and he knows that I need hot weather clothes. He has great taste and only three items have to be exchanged. Not bad considering he bought six complete outfits. Plus, I received lots of other cool gifts and cards from friends and family. It has been a really great day! Thanks for stopping by and I hope to have a project up for you tomorrow. :)
