The Nook

In all the excitement/exhaustion of remodeling our house last year, one small but pretty magical discovery was overlooked. We FOUND an extra little room in our house…

As we stripped off the old siding to insulate and weatherproof the house, we found a secret space in our bedroom.

We decided to put in a window. Yep. That’s a big hole in our bedroom.

  1. What a great job! What a great story! I was in suspense as it went from photo to photo. Would there just be a big hole in the wall? Would the nook fill with birds? Would it be another place to dump old drill presses? No! It’s a complete mini-apartment. The drawers are amazing. Seriously. The Dutch would be proud of your efficient use of space. terrific!
