It’s a wrap!

No, it’s not a stealth house, our laneway is now all covered in a layer of, well, paper.

I don’t know why, but to me it looks larger like this.  Looking at it all one colour you can see the massing of the building.  Placing the bulk of the upper story beside the stepped-back profile of the gabled roof doesn’t overwhelm the lot.  On the other side of the upper storey we have the deck and the living roof outside the kitchen window–so you have that open feeling there, too.

The big hole used by the city to hook us up to the water and sewer is gone.  And we are nearly ready to hook up to the electricity.

The power is going to come down that shiny tube for the laneway and the main house and run under the laneway and under the back yard to the main house.  That means that ugly line that runs across will be GONE!

And the garden side of the laneway looks all wrapped up, too.

And way down at the botton, beside the bedroom window?  It’s siding.

Maybe it will just spread across the outside like a wonderful, lovely, er, mold.
