    :) We just finished this afternoon, what started as a 3 week project turned into 7. It was well worth the wait, the craftsmanship is awesome!!!!! This weekend I'll be putting it back together and loving every minute! The first photo is the old grnhs, then the view from my living room, I also have a great view from my bedroom, sweeet :)

    VERY nice, Kitty. I see you found some of those ole ugly ceiling
    fans. You're gonna love having them. Trust me on this. Now let's
    see all that new space filled up.

    thanks everyone I'm a little giddy myself. As soon as it's light out I'll start putting things back in, when I'm done I'll post more pictures, it took me 12 hours to empty it so it may take me a couple days. I want to inspect and groom every plant as I position them in just the right spot, at just the right angle, leaves not touching each other.(sometimes it's tuff being me :) )

    Wow, Kitty, that's wonderful! So airy and bright and beautiful! What grade gravel is that on the floor? What a relief to have it finished! Congratulations on a major, important project's completion. Your plants will be so happy, and I know you will!

    Chris, the gravel is 3\4 drainage rock, 3 to 4 inches deep, it compacts nicely and is easy to walk on. I don't think I'll even put my mats back in. I also put about 20 inches wide of gravel around the outside for easy walking and putting out snail bait and ant poisin, better to not let them get in to begin with.
