|View from Upper Deck, Birch Lodge, Trout Lake, MI|
The last post ended with the new lakefront suite over the Dr's Suite downstairs. Across the hall on the second floor were three small bedrooms and one bathroom.
The new bedroom across from the lakefront suite over the Dr.'s Suite does not have a sitting room, but it is now a generous sized room with a large bathroom all it's own.
It is now one of my favorite rooms with a view of the lake through the tops of the birch and pine at the end window. Frequently there are warblers outside in these tree-tops, sadly I have no photo of that window! This room is full of light!.

The second floor lobby at the lodge was washed, scraped walls repaired and re-painted.

We opened a doorway into the next room further down the back hallway to make a "sitting room" for the suite. Now it has it's own bath and sitting room!

Next we took out the remaining partition walls over the Birch Bar and in two areas over the kitchen to complete the demo of the remodeling, and finished most of the drywall in those areas. Some photos of those areas will be in the next post!
