ADDING CHARACTER

Although areas of our home had character built in, others were overlooked.


The 27' floor to ceiling fireplace certainly got our attention when we first walked into this unfinished home. 



Houses here are most often multi-levels, ranch homes aren't practical because houses are built into the sides of the mountains. This staircase leads from our main living area to the 'man cave' in the lower level, with its walkout french doors.  Unfortunately, the room to the right is not open to the stairwell, except by a doorway, which makes this area feel like a tunnel.  BLA....boring.....okay ugly!



We had the lower wallboard removed in preparation for tongue and grove bead board.



Better, yes???  We ran around in Asheville yesterday trying to find suitable picture frames to display some of the many wonderful photographs David has taken.  We struck out, but the search will go on, perhaps in a bigger city to locate a better variety. Once completed, it will feel more like home not a tunnel!

The best source I find for simple yet well designed frames is Target.
The quality is great and they set off artwork/ photos, fiber art, etc.
They are fairly priced too.
I don't know if you have one in your area but I've also ordered from them online. KS
