Welcome


Front door and hallway, west facing

I'm not sure that the front door fits my definition of a window for my current windows series. It certainly opens and has glass 'windows' but you can't see through the frosted patterned glass. So I popped outside for a couple of shots as well to make up a Monday Mosiac.

The central hallway runs down the centre of the old part of the house. It's rather long with 3 rooms on either side (you can only see two on each side in this shot).

For more Monday Mosiacs visit Mary's Little Red House.

Reflection:
Mark 9:36-37 (New International Version)
He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them, "Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me."

  1. It is indeed, very welcoming.

    Is it true that w/b is colder than brick? How do you heat the house? Do you have a runner down this hall?

    Inquisitive aren't I?

  2. No weather board is not colder than brick. It can be in Queensland because many of the houses have just one layer of lining boards which leave lots of gaps for breezes to blow through, whereas these homes have double linging and in the newer part of the house have insulation in between. Obviously the ceiling is also insulated. We also lived in a weatherboard house in Canberra and that has a much harsher climate than here.

    We have gas central heating which we turn on for about an hour in the morning and sometimes at night, a log fire which we light most nights and a solar heater on the roof which blows warm air into the older part of the house and lifts the daytime temperature a degree or two.

    If you take another look at the photo, you can see we have runners (plural) in the hall. It is too long for the normal length of runners available other than that horrible cheap looking rubber backed stuff. When we first came here there was some of that. It caused another problem, with the runner being in one piece it didn't break up the hallway so it seemed to go on forever like a tunnel. We now have four runners, one of them is quite short. You can see three in the picture so basically it says you are only seeing two thirds of the hallway in the photo. I seem to remember that the hallway in 11 metres long ... but it might be 13.
