getting closer...

late last fall, most of you know... my sister karen purchased her first home.
we completely tore it apart and for months have been working with an architect/builder and a team of subs to put it back together... we have 1 month to go and all hands are on deck...

working with my sister has been amazing. she is working full time running a dental practice which is all consuming... i have been traveling monthly to colorado while running red ticking the balance of the time.

she had been looking for a while and when this all happened... we had no idea how extensive and intense it would all be... and thru it all... we have learned so much, grown even closer and in the end..
created a classic, modern, cozy, yet elegant home where she will live and we will all enjoy for years to
come... (although a man came in the other day asking about it...and inquiring was it for sale?)
karen and i are thinking... could we sell it and do it again? maybe this is a start of something new... who knows!

for now... we will do all we can to finish up... just in time for football games and thanksgiving turkey!
more photos to come... fireplace is still a work in progress but thought a sneek peek was finally worthy...

we know most every paint color, tile and counter fabricator, appliance and lighting resources so if you need any tips... just let me know i am happy to help!
