Taking care of business
(Pictures are from last week.)
The dogs and I came back up for a quick visit to take care of some business: I need to talk to the electrician again, meet the propane guy delivering the tanks, have Karen the Kitchen Designer come out to measure, and a few other things I can't think of right now. It was dark when we came in, so I didn't get to go back to the house to see if the 5-gang window unit was delivered today as scheduled. The front door and french doors should be here this week as well.
These photos are of the "3-gang" window unit in the dining room, and the "chandelier" that goes just in front of those windows over the dining room table. In a perfect world, I would be able to line up each pendant light with the center of each window. Another Pottery Barn sale on the lights, and the windows are Paradigm triple-glazed (except where they come close to the floor, like here, and then they have tempered glass on the bottom half). The engineer recommended these because they are highly efficient. I had to think twice about using them, being the green anti-vinyl girl, but they should keep us warm and last for many years...have to get over the vinyl.
