Progress on the House Interior
Walls in house have had "orange peel" texture applied. The texture on the ceiling is called "knockdown." The name of the technique comes from one step in the project when a wide knife is used to knock down and flatten peaks of texture to give it the appearance of stucco. Once dry, the walls and celing will be painted. We've selected Sherwin Williams Dover White for the interior wall (egg shell) and trim (semi gloss) paint. The ceilings will be painted with SW Roman Column (flat). We may accent some walls later in the process.

The photo below is the view from the front entry to the great room.
This photo looks from the stair landing into the den.
The next photo shows the arch for the hall leading to the powder room and beyond it,
the arch leading to the stair landing.
The buffet will be placed on the wall space behind Stephen.
This is looking from the kitchen into the great room.
You can see how much more spacious the rooms look with 9' ceilings.
This photo was taken looking from the entry arch into the kitchen.
The casement style corner kitchen windows have been replaced with full picture windows.
This is the downstairs rec room. There are three additional bedrooms on this level,
plus a kitchenette, and a bathroom.
This will be Stephne's bedroom, which is the east facing of the three lower level bedrooms.
