All I want for Christmas is a squeegee.


We're finally able to SEE some of the progress on our renovation. 
So much time and money spent on things I can't see; like electrical, structural etc....who needs that when I want to see pretties?
BEFORE
We only added 100 square feet to the interior and it was taken from the covered lanai area. You can see on the upper photo where the breakfast nook bay window is? 
That wall has been brought out to the exterior column. We'll no longer be having breakfast. 

Now, we've got 40 feet of pivoting glass doors along the back. 
AFTER
Pivoting. Folding. As in To Pivot. Or to fold. 
A view from the interior. 
It's not that we're not neighborly, we just don't want construction dirt in the door tracks. 
Or neighbors.  
Kidding.
not.so.much

I know how smart all of you are and you're all about to purchase stock in glass cleaner.  
Right?

Well, you won't have little kiddos putting lots of hand prints on the glass - then again, you'll probably have lots of doggy prints on there. ;-)

Oh my goodness! It's beautiful and it should be easy to clean since it's all just big panes of glass - unlike my windows which i don't ever clean because there's too many small panes and it's just a pain!

You sure do need about 100 squeegees! It looks beautiful.

And you added one more doggie nose to smear up the glass. It's going to be so great when it's done. I also hate spending so much money on the "hidden" stuff.

Major stuff going on here. I know you'll be excited to have it completed. I'll have to back up and see what's going on. I'm missed a bunch.

With all that glass you will definitely need a squeegee. My how beautiful it all looks! Wow! I'm a bit jealous.

Yes, I'm investing in Windex stock immediately. You'll have lots of doggie nose marks to clean up.

Wow! Those doors are going to be fabulous.
