The Kin

From left to right - Andy, Mindy, Eli, Benson, Ethan, Chris, and Karen. Andy and Chris are the two oldest sons of Gary and Pat West, and were heavily influenced by their time spent in Western Mass as kids. They lived in Charlemont then, but the scenery and atmosphere is much the same in Chester. Andy and Mindy have three boys who love to help on the house - even if that means smearing mud on our beautiful clean spruce lumber. We all love the peace and quiet of the woods and the rural setting of our house. Karen and Mindy are great friends, and will hopefully remain so, even after sharing a kitchen.

This is the South wall of the house, where the egress windows will be installed in a few months. The sun will shine into a craft room, a bedroom, and some office space on the lower level.

Happy New Year! Congrats on getting started and getting your blog going! Do you have your floorplans available for everyone (me) to see? I'm quite curious (and/or nosy) to see how you decided to lay it out!

I don't have them scanned anywhere online yet, but I'll get them up this week so you can satisfy your curiosity. And happy new year to you, Sean!
