He's Been Busy....

lately too....by HE, I mean CDR! It's been a while since I've put an update about the 7 Lakes Property. A few other bloggers have been doing 'Home Tours" so I figured I'd do one of my own..Welcome to our Home in Cato Wisconsin!
We are still at least a couple of months from being able to move in. As you can see the Wallboard is up and plastering will be starting soon. The heating has just been installed so now CDR and his Lil'Bro can work more comfortably.( The heat was also needed before plastering could start)We plan to hire someone to do the plastering. We've gotten a few estimates and should be making our choice sometime this week....So .....come on in.. here we are at the garage entrance.....you are looking into the dining area with the living room just beyond. Immediately to your left will be our Laundry Room...Once you walk all the way in...to the far left is the Kitchen...The opening to the left is my pantry closet. Around the corner to the left will be my fridge and a built in wall oven and microwave..a desk in the corner...on the far wall will be our stove and in the alcove to the right will be the sink. There will also be an island right about where that scaffolding is standing. You can see some plumbing tubes sticking up for the island prep sink...there will also be another 'bar' coming off that wall on the far right. here we have a better of view of the pantry. That space to the right is where the fridge will go...Now we are standing in the kitchen and looking into the Dining Area...and the small hallway where we came in from the garage...that little doorway in the hall is a coat closet...now you are looking directly into the Dining Area and on into the Living Room. There is an updated pic of the Living Room below this one.. The french doors on the left will go out to a deck...


Looking into the Living Room from the Dining Area...Fireplace insert ..with alcoves for built in shelving....Looking around the corner into the Entry...around the corner to the right is the guest bath and then a Library Area( It was supposed to be a Formal Dining...but I'd rather use it as a Library /Sitting area)....then to the left of the Entry Door ..you see the entry to another small room...that is CDR's Office...Guest Bath...Library/Sitting Area....I plan to have built in shelves along most of that long wall...and it's hard to see but to the right ..perpendicular to the back wall will be another small wall...I plan to have shelving on that one too...Entry to the Master Bedroom Suite.....


Master Bedroom....Looking into the Master Bath....Whirlpool tub? I think...or Jacuzzi...can't remember...LOL
Counter and Sinks will go along that wall to the left of the tub...
CDR wanted the toilet in it's own seperate area.....Looking into the shower...linen closet to the right...Master Bedroom Closet...Stairs going down to the Walkout Basement....
Spare Bedroom #1

Looking into the guest bath downstairs...it is shared by the two bedrooms downstairs....there is also access to it from the back yard ...we have a pond we plan to use for swimming in the summer and this way people can swim and have access to the bathroom without traipsing thru the rest of the house dripping wet.....

Bedroom #2 ..looking into it from the shared
Bathroom...

This is the main area downstairs....the Family/ Party/ Game Room...CDR wants to have a pool table and ping pong and such here....Entry to the Workshop/ Garden Tool storage area....this area will be left relative unfinished... Another guest bath for the Basement area....


Looking at the Stairwell area again..



And finally this will the our Theatre/Bar area....It's hard to tell but directly in from there is a space for a Huge Big Screen TV or for a Projector Screen....we haven't decided which route to go yet....and then around the corner to the right will be a full bar...for parties...This area is open to the Game Room behind me..



So there you go.....Our 7 Lakes House so far....like I said we are probably at least a couple months away from moving in.....plastering comes next.....then we'll be able to get the flooring in and cabinetry....etc. I'll be glad once it's fininshed and we can get into it...
