And then there were TWO!

Privacy is not something the Lodge was designed to provide. On the contrary, the reason for its existence is "togetherness". However, there are certain times when this becomes problematic. One of those times is trying to change clothes when members of the opposite sex are roaming about. The other is sleeping with extra doggies running around excited to be together, and adults snoring, and babies fussing, and grownups making their way to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
Our weekend project was to construct the wall between the loft sitting area and the master bedroom. We had purchased a french door from Lakeview Lumber so that whenever possible, the view of the timbers would not be blocked and when privacy is needed, I will make a set of drapes which will cover the glass of the doors. The 2x4 studding proved to be no easy task. Not only does it require working at times 15 feet from the floor, but most of the studs required angle cuts. But, with a little perseverance and a typically late supper, we were able to get the wall all ready to sheetrock.

Wow! That's a some serious progress for a single day's worth of work. Impressive as usual -- it will be strange to have something blocked in up there but I think it will help with the sleeping arrangements and at least the glass doors should help keep the open feeling. Looks great M&D!!
