    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.
