2006 and our house

Busy day today trying to get the house clean from Christmas. Took out the tree and did the requisite dusting and vacuuming. I always like the look of our house in January, with the dull sunlight reflecting in the front windows off of the snow. Lots of snow tomorrow, or so says the forecast.
Below is the front elevation plan of our new house. We finally got excited about it today, with the turmoil of 2005 and then Christmas out of the way. We have the interior first and second floor plans laid out in the kitchen, as we mark them up and plan how we’ll be living sometime this year.
Spent some time thinking about building a new workbench, one that won’t have oil tanks in the way for 12 years like mine does now. Wow.
