Building la Maison...At Last

Well, it's been almost a year and a half since my last post. Finalizing house plans and finding a contractor turned out to be more challenging than we thought. I decided to wait until things were well underway to post again. And now things are well under way. We broke ground a few months ago, and now framing is complete.

                                          Tony tells me that everything moves very slowly after framing, so when
                                           people ask when it will be finished, I tend to say "next spring".
                                           The plumbing is in, the HVAC is in, and now the electrician is here. I find 
                                           it really interesting to listen to all the different discussions that go on.
                                           Where do all of the outlets go? What kind of lighting will go where?
                                           When I think of lighting, I think of this:

or maybe even this...

but it's really more about this...

Either way, I love being part of the process. Really thinking about what will be practical...and pretty.

So, here we ago again. But this time, we really are off and running.

Until tomorrow.
