The morning view from our new screen porch:
This post is linked to OUR WORLD. Thank you to the hosts.
In our third winter season here at Upriver Resort and with no plans to spend the winter anywhere else in the near future, we decided to take the plunge and turn our "canal cottage" into something more home-like. Putting down roots is a big life-change for us, since before we bought our park model here, we had been full-time RVers for 10 years, just traveling and staying wherever we wanted to be for a while.
But with this new addition, we have definitely committed ourselves to one place for a while.
We're either committed.... or ..... maybe we should be!
So it's been interesting ... and very active ... around here for the last few weeks. Here are a few "before" and "during" pictures -- we're not quite to the "after" stage yet.
Canal side before:
Below is the side of the house where we added the Florida room (like a sunroom) - before, during construction, and (almost) after:
Just a few construction shots from various days, showing our contractor Ron, his assistant Mark, and the electrical contractors hard at work:
We're at the finishing-touches stage now -- the contractors have a few more things to wrap up and Bill is adding a few extras himself, such as re-doing our steps. And then we only "have" to shop for tile and furniture. So that's some of what's keeping us busy in our Upriver world these days.
