I realized in visiting the house that it really deserves a great camera - someone who knows how to use one properly and some staging. So, here are my crappy flybytheseatofmypants pictures (I will spare you the pic with the toilette seat up- mayday); I will hopefully get some 'professional' photos taken in future. I'm really proud of this project and I'd like to see some good pictures too!
The details in the work on this house were amazing and deserve a good look. The process of remodeling and redoing your home is a daunting one; there are literally 1000's of decisions to be made over a long time and after spending a ton of money; and of course every one of them is critical to the final outcome, but it is so easy to want the thing to just be over especially if it goes on for a long time. I work very hard to ensure that THEE best decisions are made for the client and the house and to keep the morale of the thing going.
The last decisions are the ones everyone sees in the end - they are the most important and they are also the ones being made often when the client is just tired of making decisions; bad combination.
moral of the story: if you're doing a remodel of significance - get a grip; realize what you're getting yourself into, do your homework and don't lose it near the end. really. follow through most especially at the end; if you don't; that's when bad things happen....the last thing you want to feel after a long ass project is that you would do things over again.
I had the great pleasure of doing design consulting working with the owner of this house and the contracter to who built it; I have a few pictures and I will post more about it soon...
I took a ride this weekend to visit with the owner and see the house; I hadn't seen it for at least 6+ months. It's a great feeling to go back to a project I spent over a year on and feel just as happy and good about my decisions as I did then. I like to operate as a collaborative team with the owner and in this case it couldn't have been better! Fabulous project, great results and the owner said to me she wouldn't change one thing.
They wanted to get a spread in Sunset Mag and she turned them down!
One of my neighbors is a landscape artist and designer; she asked me if I'd be interested in doing a balinese/indonesian sculpture for her garden and she will work on my backyard as a trade; what did I say to that? SIGN ME UP!
I am just starting to gather up some imagery to help me work on my design - I'll definitely be posting about this one...super excited!
that's it for today; we're deep in the monday action
Hey, wouldn't it be fun if HGTV did a show called "the shed show" - they can go all over the US in that special HGTV kind of way and profile wacky folks and their sheds. Ok, well, I'd really like to see what other wackadoodles are doing.
uh, a word about facebook; it's been fun - I admit it. It is one clunky interface - but once you get good a mazes you eventually find the piece of cheese.
