From the beginning, the library landing has been the heart of our renovation. Paul Rovinelli spent countless hours with us designing it. He knows Bill and I are book lovers—to put it mildly—and wanted a special space to enjoy our collection with our children. The library isn't large, but it will be a congenial space, full of light, and the warmth of books. The window seat will be an inviting spot to curl up with a book, do some homework, or play a board game. I can't wait for it to be finished!
And that day is drawing closer. Last week, Tom and Norm put their heads and hands together to craft the cabinets and built-ins for this gorgeous space, and it was a thrill to watch. Knowing that two masters put their combined expertise into this space will make it even more special for our family. Thank you, Tom! Thank you, Norm! We couldn't be happier with how things are shaping up.

It looks even better than when I last saw it on the webcam. I bet they are even further ahead by now and with Norm and Tommy on the job you can't lose. I will be very interested in seeing the finished project on television. Are these shelves in the landing going to be painted? I think paint at least here would look nicer than staining and would make things brighter. Way to go guys great job!
