Windows to the soul of our new home

Josh and Austin, two of the greatest guys to work with, were at the house all day today. They nailed down the new subfloor, the windows were delivered, and they got in the two biggest windows and the front door. These guys have the best attitudes, work ethic, and work really well together. It’s a joy to watch them. So without further ado, (adieu?) here’s a view of what our new home will look like.

Just realized I didn’t take an overall look photo, I was so obsessed with the new windows and the front door especially!!

I’m so excited to have windows that open and operate! Especially on the North & East side where we get such lovely breezes. This will be a game changer for me. (Bill, not so much.. he doesn’t love open windows…I’ll work on him)

Here’s a look inside last night before windows were installed. (Top photo, the window on far right will be closed in.. that’s the old guest bedroom window)

I think I took 18 pics of the front door today, and just stared at it for a full 1/2 hr. I’m so excited about what we chose. It’s really coming together!! I’m excited also to host you, my family, my friends in our new home when it’s complete, where we’ll experience Bill and Amy’s new kitchen together.

Bill (Guillermo 'cause he likes pretending he knows Spanish) and I (Amy) have been married since Sept 2005. We live in Southern Ontario, Canada - Niagara Peninsula in fact, smack dab between 2 of the Great Lakes. We love God, our family, our church family, and making each other laugh. (ergo the profile pic, he decided to make our photographer laugh by throwing a leg up on me just before the shutter clicked, which made ME laugh) When we married, I told Bill: "I don't know how to cook" but he had faith in me. So 15 years later, I'm still learning, and having fun. I've never (in my whole life) cooked a whole bird, chicken, turkey or otherwise. I've never roasted a beef, other than in a crockpot on low for 8 hrs. I like trying to find healthy & easy recipes and then I rarely follow them. I don't enjoy recipes that take hours or intricate steps. I have a special fondness for the Podleski sisters, writers/creators of the Looney Spoons, Crazy Plates and Yum/Yummer cookbooks. In 2018 we suddenly decided to rip our small house apart from stem to stern, moving out for 4.5 months while the house was demolished inside and out, and then rebuilt with an addition. If you go back in the archives to July-Dec 2018 you can follow that story. It's made our house open and so much more conducive to entertaining, small groups and large. It's given us the kitchen I've dreamed of to create and learn in. We feel incredibly blessed to be able to write about our journey, our faith in God and some fun recipes along the way. Thanks for joining us.
