What's the grade
Last week we saw the siding get finished. This week, another huge milestone - rough grading. Here's what the grading looked like before:
RECIPE: The Perfect Margarita
It's been awhile since I've written about food (or a drink in this case), so I figured this was an excellent time to change that -- summer is winding down, and here's the perfect way to end it:
Let's pick sides
The day has arrived - we can finally say goodbye to our greenhouse. The siding is being installed, and as it is, this is looking more and more like our modern farmhouse.
We were at a prior-to-the-schoolyear preschool playdate this morning, and one of the other parents told me that her friend follows this blog. It made me so happy to hear. When I look at the web traffic for the site, there are many people who passively follow - no problem with this, obviously, I love to have people spending their time with me, but sometimes I feel like I'm writing to no one. It was nice to hear that this friend loves the blog and following our house progress, so thank you friend, and thank you other pre-k parent for sharing - it made my day.
Does your house have a logo?
Every design starts with an idea; a little inkling of what might one day become something. In architecture school I was taught that these little ideas should be generated quickly, jotted down, and set to the side so more ideas are free to come. In the architecture world, these sketches are called Parti Diagrams - I think it's much more relatable to call them what they really are - Logos.
