A Man and His Mantel
(Picture by Peter D. Guerrant)
To the right of the fireplace is the space for the TV and shelves (now propped against the window) for stereo equipment and such. The opening to the left of the fireplace will house a cabinet for CDs and DVDs, with more shelf space above.
On the right is the breakfast area as seen from the kitchen. The family room is to the left. Just outside the door is a small covered porch. Beyond the porch will be a 10' by 12' wooden deck. The concrete is now in place on both porches.
On the left is the kitchen as seen from the family room. The shelves are in place in the pantry. There will be a bar on the family room side of the island and a work-height counter on the kitchen side with cabinets below. The triangular opening is for the wire to the left-rear speaker of the surround sound in the family room. On the right is a view through the foyer to the front door.
The bathroom tile has been installed on the floor, around the tub, and in the shower. The door on the left leads into the walk-in closet. The cabinet and basins will be on the right. The shower and linen closet are to the left beyond the picture area. The commode will be to the right beyond the picture area. (Like most consumer digital cameras, mine does not zoom out very far to a wide angle, so it's hard to photograph much of a bathroom.)
The window gives an excellent view into the tub from about 5 windows in the Muellers' house.
