Room with a view.

The song by Mitch Easter and Chapel Hill's Let's Active not the Forster novel nor the Merchant Ivory movie.

In updating The Lightside, a 1940s home, my parents first finished the upstairs attic by adding two dormer windows and making a huge suite with bathroom. The two dormer extensions include one desk area, a built-in bookcase, and one sitting area. Indeed a room with a view!

The view out either dormer window is basically this:

The rest of the house is pretty homey too! Here's part of the downstairs master bedroom.

The living room/cum den is quite comfy.

Here we sit and read, watch TV, and make fires, sometimes the later two together as the third of this montage of Christmas 2007 fires makes clear!
