Pictures of Our House – Part 2 (Living/Dining/Library Office)

Today I’m featuring Part 2 of  our house pictures. As you’ll notice from eyeing the pictures, the openings behind the barn doors were once large windows and the Library/Office was once a back patio.  Where the large cased openings are, we originally had nice French doors.  We reused those doors in my Dressing Room (show…
