Let It Go

My attachment to stuff has changed … 975 square feet, one closet, two dogs, north winds, a forest, dirt roads and ongoing construction will do that to a person.

This will be our third winter in the north woods and I can assure you that living in this much nature is best described as magical humility wrapped in gratitude and the best part hasn’t even happened yet.

It’s so nice to have things to look forward to, instead of back.

Someday, This Could All Be Yours

My first recollection of a someday was very disappointing when my 3 year old self never turned into a dog or a horse but I still carried on and got over it.

Fast forward … after years of practice creating experiences for corporate folk, now’s my chance to plan how this looks, again, for real, no backs, no do-overs, no storage lockers, no road trips … really? … as she sat there waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Which would be fine too … size 8.5 please.

“objects are bigger than they appear”

The studio-bunkhouse is still underway … slower process than we’d like – oh well … it will when it does.

It’s bigger than I imagined.

Studio-Workshop-Bunkhouse

The studio and man cave are dried in and now the floors, walls, window coverings and lighting need to be finalized.

The kitchen and bathroom are ready for final design decisions like walls, floors, countertops, cupboards, appliances, lighting, tile, sinks, faucets, shower, window coverings … $$$$$ …. this is the part where you have to dig in to find the very best for less with no regrets. It will be done … under budget or bust.

Kitchen-Bathroom Design

In closing … one thing always holds true with Roberto … go big or go home. This time he designed a multi-use space where a crowd can take a nap or have a hoedown.

Brilliant … hope they bring snacks.
