Really, we have been working. Just not on anything that’s blog-worthy. Yet. Or until now. Trapezoid is 99% complete. We did the substantial completion deficiency review today so soon we must say goodbye to our baby and turn it over to the rightful owners. It’s a bittersweet parting – glad for them that they are finally able to move into their house, sad for us that we will no longer have access to it. Because it has some REALLY nice spaces in it. And I think we’ve succeeded in editing the wishlist down to a place that will be comfortable, beautiful and loved. At least I hope so. The laughter of the children, artwork, meals prepared in the kitchen and wine spilt on the floor will transform it into a home. We’ll be back in the spring to have the professional photos taken after the landscaper’s machines are gone and the plants have put down roots and leafed out. Winter is a time to settle in, be still and reflect on the process.
Aspen trees have been planted in the entry courtyard.
North fence and sidewalk are going in.
View from the entry towards fireplace.
One of my favorite places is the window nook inset next to the entry closet.
The protective cover has been removed from the kitchen island.
Aspen trees have also been planted outside the living room windows adjacent the back concrete patio.
Second Floor. Another favorite spot – the library space at the end of the hallway.
