The tour of La Casa del Azúcar continues with the front room--or in our home, the other side of the kitchen. We didn't do a ton to this space... well, other than new flooring, taking out the walls between the kitchen and the hall, opening it up, painting the fireplace and adding a new granite hearth, adding a new ceiling, can lighting, as well as painting and adding trim.

|right after we got the granite hearth in--I can't remember for sure, but I think this was at Christmastime.|
The granite slab on the fireplace was one of the last things that was done in our home, right before Christmas. It was like enjoying pad thai noodles and then finally squeezing that lime wedge they give you: it is 10x more delicious than before. Again, if you are in Utah, give Rod Budge a call with European Marble and Granite.

|I'm sure morning sun wasn't the most ideal addition to these photos. But, I LOVE the light that streams through these windows from the kitchen and front room. Vitamin D any way I can.|
Next week: bathroom or downstairs family room? What say you?
