construction update

October 7, 2011

After a site visit this week to one of our new-build projects we have some new photos to share!

The project is moving right along thanks to the awesome team with Fred Nordahl Construction and Remodeling. Stay tuned in the coming weeks as the floors get installed, doors get hung, paint gets painted and tile gets tiled!

These exterior shots show the house as it was in August with the first floor built. The bottom picture shows the house with the second floor, siding and roofing... al that we need next is paint!

 
 
 

Here are side by side shots of the front entry with the stair leading up to the second floor. We can't wait for the pretty flooring, stair parts and carpet runner! It's all coming together!

 
 
 
 

These shots show the evolution of the kitchen space. Once the cabinets AND our client's snappy vintage light fixture go in... oh heaven's! It's going to be delightful!

design tips: vol. 3

September 30, 2010

Greetings to all!

It’s time for another installment of our hauthaus design tips for your home!

FRONT ENTRY TIP:  A bright, colorful console or coat rack, a favorite piece of artwork and/or  fresh flowers will energize your entry and express who you are.

Your home should welcome you at the front step and project your design style with gusto!  Make a statement and make sure it carries through from one room to the next.

HOME OFFICE TIP:  Be sure to have the supplies you use regularly organized and in abundance.  A well stocked home office and a comfortable desk chair will encourage you to go in and sit down for a bit. 

Task lighting and a paper recycling bin or shredder will make you even more efficient at managing your correspondences.

FAMILY ROOM TIP:  Make this gathering space purposeful.  Are there games nearby?  Cozy blankets within reach and stain resistant fabric on the sofa?  Coasters and good reading material close by? 

The TV doesn’t have to be the only source of entertainment.  If there are alternatives handy, like a deck of cards, they will likely be used!
