We got back from camping at Mammoth Cave National park here in the beautiful state of Kentucky, and we had soooo much fun! It was our first “family vacation” as a family of seven. :)
It was definitely different having Sania Louise with us, but she loves the outdoors and had a great time hiking and exploring the caves. I will share more about our trip later this week.
But for today, I want to update you on our new garage and bonus room.
The bonus room now has walls! And it really helps me see how big it is going to be. The boys are super excited about this space!
And I am going to love having a garage to finally park my car in. I had a garage in our last house, but we haven’t had one in our new house for the past five years.
This week, I get to pick out two new garage doors. I am wanting something that fits in with the farmhouse look. The garage has two windows on one side, and one window and the door to the covered walkway to the laundry room on the other side.
Right past the door to the walkway is the stairway that will lead up to the bonus room. This stairway will eventually be closed off with a door at the bottom of the stairs to keep it private.
When you get to the top of the stairs, you immediately notice the large window opening. It will be three separate windows in one opening.
I wanted a lot of light in this room since we will not have windows on the other walls. .
We have a five foot knee-wall on each side of the bonus room, and eventually we will have a bathroom in the back corner opposite the stairs
I love the view from the bonus room window opening….
This is what the back of the bonus room looks like. The bathroom will be in the corner on the left.
Here is a shot from behind…you can see the door opening that will lead to our covered walkway that we hope to be constructing soon.
And this is what the garage looks like in comparison to the rest of our house. The garage will be wrapped in the same white hardie board siding that is on our addition, and we will put the same shutters on the large bonus room window.
Things are happening quickly, so I hope to share another update with you in a week or two.
I hope you have had a great day! This mama is hitting the hay early tonight! Camping wore me out! :)
