The Floor Plan:
|La Malcontenta- Floor plan, second floor|
|Master bedroom looking toward entrance|
The open doorway goes to the hall and the bathroom, and hides the “hidden” stairs to the attic rooms. (Only a couple of the steps are visible in the hall and go nowhere.)
|This is the bathroom area; at rear the door to the hall and the "hidden" stairs to the attic rooms.|
The carpet is just a piece of the right color fabric. The bedspread material came with the drapes. For a touch of color I added the salmon chairs—I think it works. The green paint is Delta Creamcoat Moss Green.
I picked crisp-looking pictures for the walls.
We made the working casement windows with transoms--should have been easy to make, but weren’t.
|Master bedroom and casement windows with transoms.|
|The master bath, tub alcove with walk-in shower behind it. The window has a suncatcher as "stained glass".|
|The bathroom & kitchen "bump-outs".|
Next problems—I built a lovely area for the bathtub but forgot to remember that I was going to put a tall walk-in shower behind it. This meant that I could not put the shower together as a unit out of the bathroom because I could not get it behind the half-wall. I had to put it together in-situ, one piece at a time, gluing to the wall, floor, and itself, over and around the half-wall. Yuk!!
|All is well that ends well!|
