Winter House

Bright and early tomorrow morning we will be heading up north skiing with the family. It is my intention to actually ski but we will see how that goes. Today we did the Costco run for groceries. We will make Rigatoni with meatballs one night, roast turkey another and a beef brisket another. All this will be fixed using the stove top and a roaster since the oven on the stove in our 45 year old Chalet is shot, should be interesting.

We have loved the Chalet that my Dad and his three brothers built in the early 1960's, but it is in desperate need of an update. Dana has the design all figured out on her computer and we will meet with a builder while we are up there to see if her design will work structurally and to get a cost estimate. We are using Charlotte Moss's Winter House as inspiration. It seems like I read somewhere that she sold her house in Aspen but don't know if that is a fact, but I would hate to have let it go if I was her.


  1. Have fun with the makeover. Has exciting has that may seem it can wear on the nerves after awhile. My Christmas gift this year from hubby is a laundry room makeover. Last year was my bedroom. What a better gift then the joy of a comfortable cozy home. Enjoy.

    The view outside the photo cover of Charlotte Moss's Winter House looks like the viw outside the front windows of the Chalet. Loved the Christmas photos of the family. Your mom and dad look great. Love Pam
