Anyone else totally over the weather 🙄 definitely should not be lighting the stove in June 🙈 Alex and I are sitting down tonight and booking a holiday, because I definitely think a week off and a little bit of sunshine is well needed before Alex starts into work on the house over the summer, totally wrecks his back and spends every day in agony all over again 😣 But he wouldnt have it any other way and given the choice would probably forego the holiday to get that extra week at the house 🤦♀️ Taking him out of the country is usually the only way to get him to take a day off and I'll happily do that if it means a bit of sunshine ☀️😜
If you’ve even been inside a medieval or gothic cathedral and looked up, you would no doubt have noticed its extraordinary vaulted ceiling!
The original Cathedral designers wanted to ensure their buildings were larger than life - much bigger than us! So they had to come up with a way of increasing the height of the walls to make these super buildings super tall....Enter the vault!
If you’ve seen my previous post on arches you’d already know that a vault is a stretched out arch, and when joined together these vaults make extremely strong structures that can hold together without a lot of ground support - and they look pretty good to! Perfect for tall walls and high ceilings!
So, not only did these talented architects and builders achieve the imposing height they were after, they managed to create a superlative design feature while they were at it!

Going to spend a lot of time in the Great Room. Really wanted a wood burning fireplace but needed a more affordable option. Discovered the perfect alternative, a wood burning stove made to look like a fireplace. Floor to ceiling cement fireplace with rustic wood mantle. Leaning toward all cement but haven't ruled out having shiplap above mantle. 8ft industrial single doors on either side of fireplace swinging out onto the porch. Love the look of the fireplace and doors taking up the whole wall. Vaulted ceiling with large rustic beams and 73" round chandelier. Brick on the TV wall with maybe a little German schmear texture. Shiplap will wrap around from the foyer on the office glass wall. The stairs leading down to the walkout basement will run along the length of the office wall. Bannister will be rustic wood with tension cables. Wood beams above the entranceways leading to the boys' rooms and framing out the kitchen. Furniture from Restoration Hardware. Still need to find the perfect armchairs and ottoman for the fireplace. I know I want it to be fabric with wood accents. Wide plank wood floors.
