I’m filling my time with reading, knitting, texting with the boys, FaceTiming with Chris as he tries to makes some more masks in preparation for the anticipated directive for people to wear masks while away from home (performing essential tasks or exercising of course!) and cuddling with Finn but waiting is harder away from home without my quilting to distract me.
Keith and I were sitting last night and talking about how we can’t wait to be at the new house and being outside to hike or just to sit so I thought I’d share the outdoor spaces we’ll have at the house.
You can see there’s a front porch in this photo – it looks out to the “neighborhood” which is made up of just a few houses on a cul de sac.
There’s plenty of room for a couple chairs and a small table to hold drinks.
However, this is probably the outdoor space we’ll use the most! I’m so happy to have a screened porch. It’s right off the great room and the master bedroom has a door leading out to it too.
Right next to the screen porch is a large covered deck. Perfect for the grill and eating outside.
Downstairs on the terrace level, there is a deck that runs the length of the house. This one is right off my sewing spaces and I’ve already told Keith I’ll want a comfy chair out here to take my coffee breaks during the work day. It’s where I’ll probably sit to blog and share photos of my work too. Did you see all the trees surrounding the house? I can’t wait to be back in the woods!
I might just have some company out there too because Rae’s one request was that the house have a “rocket swing”. (Can you see it all the way at the end of the deck?) We had one on the porch at the Tampa house but took it down to add more seating which disappointed her.
