I’ve been writing about our big renovation project almost all year. From the moment I chose my three words, the plan for a bigger work space has never been far from my mind—or from my blog. The words Hope and Build and even YES have provided updates of our progress. We started demolition on June 14, and the project was the focus of our summer (and a good part of this fall, too; check out yesterday’s slide show if you’d like to see how far we’ve come!). I am pleased that this week my word is Done. We’ve finished enough of our new space to feel comfortable inviting you in. Please take our brief tour (didn’t my husband do a great job on the video?) and let us know what you think!
We’re hoping to have an Open House early in December, so keep watching here for details. Thank you for your interest and words of encouragement in the past few months. They have meant so much!
Lovely! Bet you’re happy and relieved! Wonder what you are planning for that huge space in the middle of the floor? No need to answer any time soon. Take your time and get used to enjoying your new space!
Emily, I LOVE IT!!!! So Peaceful, and organized. I’m envious. You have been working so hard on it, and it shows. Just beautiful. I also love the beautiful picture window. You must feel even more creative now (not sure that it’s possible though.)
Congrats and enjoy it.
GORGEOUS!!! That green is my favorite green ever because it’s so calming, soothing. A retreat. Maybe you should host a yoga retreat up there. lol! Congrats!!! Great video, too, of course!
Thanks so much!
The huge space is for extra work tables that I need a few times a year. It’s also for the ping pong table if we must move on to Plan B (that is, if new cosmetics regulations put me out of business!). Unfortunately, we had to be practical in designing it that way. At least we’ll have a nice family spot if that should happen.
Thank you, Tammy. I was hoping to make an office with lots of space to “play” and it’s been SO nice. It’s about 4 times the size of my previous room, and I’ve emptied three closets and several other storage areas in my house. Nice to have another place for things!
Jen, YES. My favorite color, and it is really calming. SERENITY NOW! LOL!
