The second floor went up last week and how about those columns? Don’t they make all the difference?
This is my favorite time in a project. The walls are up and everyone is able to see/feel how the space is really going to perform.
For most folks it has been a faith walk up until now. They have simply had to trust me and the architect to assure them that we know how the space is really going to look. The walls now start to “talk to me” suggesting little changes that make all the difference in the end product. I’m not talking major changes, those take place on paper long before we ever reach this stage. It’s the little things: a wash on that beam instead of paint or a light moved a few inches to fit a planned painting at the proper angle. The re-positioning of a furniture grouping to take advantage of a view that you didn’t realize you would have, it all starts to come together slowly, piece by little piece.
The more autonomy we have at this stage the better the end result I have learned.
This is the view of the dining room, foyer, and stair hall. The door on the center left leads out to a screened dining porch.
I am so wanting to see some wood on that ceiling.
Turn around and you see this. The large opening on the left is the front door.
Keep panning right and you see the rest of the living room. The fireplace will be between the two short windows.
You can’t really see it in the picture but I love the fact that these walls splay out to frame a spectacular master tub area.
It makes it much more important than straight “normal” walls would have.
I have saved the best for last.
This is going to be the kitchen. The whole house started with this view.The ceiling starts out flat then vaults only in the center part of the room making the island and range wall the jewel box of the entire house. Topics of discussion right now are centering around marble, quartz, subway tile and hood details. It’s gonna be great y’all!
Now here’s a weird one for you. On my way back from the inspection I saw this on the lake.
Seriously? Pelicans in Montgomery, Alabama? What in the world?
These spiffy custom bar stools just arrived for the Enterprise project. I love the way they turned out. The inside is a low maintenance leather (read- wipe up the spilled milk) while the outside is a way cool fabric that looks like grass cloth. Very chic.
That week closed out with a meeting about some exciting possibilities in Georgia.
Stay tuned! Big announcements coming.
