  • Stylebook: The Backyard!

    OutdoorSeating

    When we first came to check out the models, never intending to move, one of the things that sucked me in was the outdoor space. Here in Colorado, we are blessed with the most awesome weather. That probably sounds crazy to an outsider who thinks of CO only in terms of snow and skiing, but while […]

  • Stylebook: Master Bedroom!

    We’re getting close! And I find it fun and great that only now in the crunch is when some of my plans are starting to gel for certain spaces. The master bedroom was spurred along by my need to choose a paint color for our painter that will come in the day after closing and […]

    This guy has been working his tail off. He’s been in his shop (the teeny garage in the back yard of our rental house), at crazy hours, late on weeknights and quite a good percentage of our at-home weekends, working his magic. He’s been turning my sketches into reality – mud room cabinets!

    We are almost there! We close in 20 days!! My close-quarters (799 sf, people!!) meltdowns have become more frequent. I spent a good portion of my afternoon on Saturday cleaning up the house – it hadn’t looked so good in weeks!! Only to have it completely destroyed yesterday when we had a sewer issue and […]

  • A Quick House Update

    2014-06-17 08.19.41

    I really didn’t mean to go on this long without an update. I thought I would post while we were on vacation. But yea… that didn’t happen. We were just having too much fun hanging out. We had lots of long days beaching and sunning and practicing keyboard (not kidding). And we went to NOLA and […]

    After over three weeks of seemingly nothing happening on our house, we have movement! YAY! Apparently the insulators were the sticking point, getting behind on schedule and holding us up. While they were elsewhere, they did do work – it just wasn’t highly visible work – they did frame in our fireplace and build some […]

    It hasn’t been the easiest thing living so far away from our “home base.” The commute is brutal. But we’re getting there … and seeing the house take shape is great. It shows us we’re getting close! We had our pre-drywall walk yesterday. It was pretty uneventful – just a couple of small things that […]

    We took the opportunity spring break presented to take a nice little trip to Vail with some family friends. We had 3 families of four plus my cousin who came along to provide child-minding services and my sister who came along because she’s a bit crazy. We went up late on Thursday and skied Friday […]

    I really need to do a post about Tabby turning 7 and some of the other things that have gone on, but photos are stuck on my camera … due to a lack of time rather than any sort of electronics malfunction … and I am not going to stop blogging just because of that […]
