Ready for some upstairs drywall action?
(If you missed my downstairs drywall post you can catch it here: ATG&D Dream Home | Downstairs Drywall.)
I snapped this first picture as I was walking from our main level to the upstairs. It’s a great look at our 2-story entryway in its entirety, with our temporary front door, sidelights, and the three square windows at the top. We also have the world’s most beautiful light fixture hanging from that ceiling now (not that I’m biased or anything) – I can’t wait to show you!
Below is at look at our upstairs hallway/landing area. I took this picture standing at the entrance to my office doorway. The overlook to our 2-story entryway is straight ahead, the open staircase is to the right, and Kate’s “suite” (her bathroom and bedroom) are in the back right corner.
A peek at the entryway overlook. (I couldn’t get too close without a railing there because I drop too many f-bombs when it comes to heights.)
Below is another look at the landing (again from my office doorway) but this picture is more angled downward so you can see how open the upstairs is to the main level. I love how open everything is!
This next picture was taken at the other end of the landing, with the steps going down right there in front (and the doorway to my office in the background). I have another gorgeous light fixture (from Shades of Light – love them!) hanging here in the center of the staircase as well. I can’t wait until we get to the lighting posts!
Now for one of my favorite views in the house! See that temporary post in the picture above? If you stand right there and look down, this is what you see:
Three stories of steps, wrapping around an open rectangle in the center. See that drywall mud splattered floor at the bottom? That’s our basement level! I’m so crazy about this feature in our home – it creates such a beautiful open feeling among all three levels.
Going back to Kate’s corner, here’s a look into her bathroom. It’s L-shaped, with her sink and vanity area here at the entrance, and her bathtub and toilet around the corner to the left (next picture).
Right next to Kate’s bathroom is her bedroom:
As you saw in the pictures above, at the opposite corner of the upstairs is my office (technically the 3rd bedroom but we only intend to use it as an office). The picture below is taken from the hallway leading to my office doorway. To the left will be open railing that overlooks the staircase.
Below is my office all drywalled out. I took this picture from all the way inside of my office, standing in front of the two windows you see above. From this angle, you can see the opening to our indoor balcony overlooking the living room (right) and the opening for the closet (left). My office doorway (not in frame) is located to the left of the closet.
And here’s one more look at our stairs.
(Because I’m obsessed.)
Next in our new home construction series we’re going to head back outside so I can gush about how much I love our garage doors.
They’re the most beautiful garage doors ever made.
(That I know of.)
(And can afford.)
