One Step Closer

The drywalling is done, and today I spent 3 hours doing a walk-through of my new house with the designers, Michelle Dunker and Pam Jensen of Medici Design, and the builder, Brian, the B in B & J.  It was kind of tedious because they speak their own language with words that I don’t understand, all having to do with building.  I was so tired towards the end all I could think about was lying down to rest, but I muscled through and in the end lots of the builder’s questions about the finish work were answered.  It gets easier to imagine myself living in that house with the completion of every phase.  Man I’m excited for that day to come!

The garage walls are getting finished.

Complicated looking heating and plumbing stuff.

Detail of the doorway between the family room and the kitchen.

This might be the craziest looking thing in the house, and it’s right inside the front doors no less.  I never planned on this, but when the stairway was built, the architect had the stairs that lead up sticking out into the upper part of the room.  It looked like a big angled mistake.  This is the fix the designer and builder came up with to disguise it.  It does look much better than before,  and quite dramatic.  Not what I would have ever envisioned, but I can live with it.
