I will have both track lighting and can lights. All of them are on separate dimmers so I should have pretty good control of overall lighting. The only decision left is paint color. I'm leaning toward a tan color with some sort of faux effect to it to break it up a bit.
You’re way ahead of me! You have really thought this through well!
Can’t wait to see it finished and filled !

They worked hard right up to Christmas eve





Good job on the recessed lighting! Really makes a dramatic difference. So have you started working up plans for the enclosed walkway between the main house and this one? ;) It would be practical and make a lovely gallery moving between spaces.

Gemsbok - I haven't seen that color before. Looks good!

Ridge Top - Wow. Amazing. Great room with great animals! I like how the ceilings and floors match.

Exterior is finishing up. Roof tiles going on. Interior is getting the focus. Cabinetry and trim are complete. So next up has been staining the beams and baseboards, etc.



This is more and more impressive each time you give an update!

Hello! I noticed your E Type in your avatar. What year is it? I have a '69 that looks identical, minus the wire wheels. My car has the steel rims, as I understand it,a more expensive option, but I like the wire wheel much better!
