It's been over a week since I've written about the building going on in our back yard.  I warn you - I have pictures!

For those of you who know our house the wall on the right is the back of the garage.  There is a short lane in front of the window in what will be the new bathroom.  In order to make the roof work with the existing family room roof, the new roof couldn't grow out of the garage.

This is photo is taken from inside the new room looking towards the awning windows.  It's hard to tell, but the windows are, as the name suggests, high enough so there will be privacy even though the room looks over to our neighbors' home.

Here those window opening from the outside (with the legs of a ladder sticking out and wonderful shadows on the wall).  

This picture is looking through the roof towards the beginning-to-bloom tree against the blue sky.

Looking at the house from the back garden puts the construction into perspective. The bare spots are where some of the dirt from the excavation has been spread to smooth out the yard.  Of course, it's mostly sand!

The opening for the three panel glass door is clear in this photo.  And you can see straight through to the back door into the garage.  That door will be moved - eventually.

The decision has been made to vault the ceiling so it will be similar in style to the family room, and I am very happy.  Such a ceiling in this smaller room will make seem more open and airy.

It is all coming together.
