The debate on what to do with the ceiling was decided today.
What it looked like yesterday.What it looks like today. Cost was the leading factor in our decision. It will be raised from the former height where the sheetrock stops, to the new height of 12 feet in the center with sloped sides. Not my first choice, but I am not complaining. I am thrilled at the volume it will provide to the room.
Now we are researching the chandelier and trying to decide were to place the table and the chandelier.
Chris tied a 70" piece of trim over the makeshift table using a tape measure and level to extend it to the 101" of our dining table. I think moving the table to the center of room makes the most sense. It allows room for the winch he plans to install to lower the chandelier for cleaning, bulb changes and to decorate of course!
Our pergola is covered with New Dawn roses which are in full bloom.
