Up to the minute updates as requested eons of threads back...
Here we are starting to trim out w/ birch ply & some Redwood to match existing...

We found someone that is going to try to blast the paint off the fireplace wall with dry-ice & cornmeal...

We will keep ya posted on the results.

Chrome dining lamp is a retro fit from old lightolier track fixtures...

Found a cool canopy from elk lighting...

I've always been coastal -- is that why don't notice the salt air anymore ?

I miss the seasons of New England. Here, we have Seasons Lite. . .

Beautiful!!
That looks so nice, that I find myself missing snow.
...well, almost-- but gorgeous place, for sure.

Snow has retreated enough for us to attempt replacing the front door.

Wood slab birch door in an aluminum frame is not an easy route to take.

Coordination between the carpenter & glass guys was amazing..

Here are a few shots..

Eric,

When are you and Jerad going to come to St. Louis? I owe you some Panera Bread Co. and Jerad owes me a lawn job.

Udo - Is it possible to post a before shot too? We're actually contemplating doing the exact same thing but have been hesitant but that photo makes me think we should move forward (we don't have a sidelight at the moment so this will require re-framing which is the scariest part for us). Thanks, looks great already!

Here is a before shot.
Framing went in fairly nice. Allow 1/4 tolerence for the frame or door kit.

I love the transformation! It looks great. It's good to see others in KC doing what they can for modern architecture.

I think it's nice to see modern somewhere other than California!
Make modern your own, don't trust others to- it's our future.
