Feelin’ It

I’ve been nearly pain free for a week plus one day now, which means I’m finally getting back to normal. Mother nature kindly let the summer weather begin right about the time I began to feel better too, which was a very lucky coordination. I feel like sewing, shopping, visiting, singing, reading, playing and blogging once again. Cleaning? Laundry? Still don’t feel like that, although I have to do it to keep things under control.

So first off, an update on the house construction is in order. The siding is all up and is getting painted now that the rain has let up.

The mason can start on the rock pretty soon.

The patio and the porch both got poured. Michelle at Medici did the design of both, and when she gave it to the crew, one of them called her “the concrete bitch.” I think she takes it as a compliment.

The finish work inside is going full steam ahead. There’s a lot of it to do, but I’d say they are at least half done and it’s looking really awesome. B & J Custom Building is doing meticulous work. Thank-you Brian and crew for keeping at it and treating me so well.

Lastly, I’ll leave you with three views out the back of the house of the exact same thing.

The first is from the back door of the basement.

Second, is from the doorway to the deck, main floor.

And this last one is from the balcony off the master bedroom upstairs.

On a sad note, Pam, the assistant designer at Medici, is leaving to go live in Salt Lake City. She has been like a good friend to me as we have worked on my house. She’s always cheerful, always on task, has an unbelievable memory and great taste. I just don’t know what we would have done without her, and I hate to lose her, even though almost everything is decided on right down to cabinet knobs. Pam, good luck to you and your husband, and keep in touch! Maybe you’ll have to come up to a party in the new house.

B & J and Medici will have a house in the Cache Valley Parade of Homes in Providence starting this week-end. I wish it was my house that was done, but I’ll go and check out this Parade home anyway. Because I feel great, and I’m so thrilled that I do.
