Finding a Place for Everything

The whole property is in a shambles.

The largest rounds are 45 inches in diameter.

With 3 dead oak trees taken down we have major wood all over the property.

We have a few rounds to choose from.

I’m offering un-split rounds on Craigslist.

And we’re waiting for 400 square feet of hardwood flooring to be installed so that pile of lumber is holding our living room hostage.

One end of the master bedroom is a holding place for our mess from the hall and closet.

The master closet and hall have moved into the master bedroom.

Everything with a label needs a new home.

Even with all the chaos in the house I have to start moving things out of the Cottage.

With the help of Floorplanner.com I started picturing what the Cottage would look like cleared out and furnished.

The nice thing about Floorplanner is that a 3D rotational model is possible.

It spins around.

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

    1. Laying in the dimensions of the space takes awhile but once that is done it’s fun to move the furniture around. I save the rooms. Jo

  1. Looks like fun software to play with! The entry looks large enough to accommodate a desk or storage cab under the window. Any ideas on providing closet space?

    1. A tallboy will fit to the left of the front door in the corner. There’s space on the back wall (near the washer/dryer) for a hanging rod. I would probably hang a curtain or bamboo blinds to masque the space. Jo
