Hah, hah, just our bedroom, and thank you for not pointing out that the bed isn't made. I was looking for the best light. The fireplace is nice, it's a gas one that goes on with a remote control. I am 100% sure your talented husband could put that in.
I had a real wood stove in my basement bedroom in the house I rented in college and nothing compares to that. I love houses & architecture from 1900 - 1920, so many of them have fireplaces in every bedroom. There's still a few in our area. But of course there isn't modern wiring or HVAC and the plumbing is old.... in my next life I'm going to build a green house that is eco-sound in every way possible but looks like something classical and Edwardian. In this life I think I may or may not get an outdoor fireplace built this summer. I keep changing my mind.
Hubbie John is super nice and patient with the animals. I think he might even admit to liking the chickens now although he's a little scared of holding them. We had fun learning how to free-poach eggs tonight, i.e., just boiling water and a cracked egg. I'm not sure how's he going to react to the worming process though. Maybe I'll wait until he's away on a trip, lol.
