As the weather has been turning colder, we moved up the planned install of the fireplace. We couldn’t resist!!
This weekend we took a break from house projects when the power went out (from a downed tree). We drove around going to barn sales… which are the foothills version of garage sales. Lucky for us, we picked up a couple of things and met a sweet baby horse. All and all, a great weekend.
There is no question that we had a blast at Jenine’s and Dave’s wedding. We love them both and had an amazing time. More on that in another post. What we didn’t expect, was to fall in love with a cottage on the site of the wedding at White Pine Camp. We love The Tennis House. Ideally we would love to use it as inspiration as we dream to design a similar addition to our foothills home.
We’re appreciative of Labor Day this year in our own way. For us, it’s house labor!
We have been putting in 12 and 14 hour days each weekend. It’s been a labor of love…. and also, at times, a total pain in the ass.
We were pretty tired each Sunday night by the time we got back to SF. But even on those days, when it seemed like we bit off more than we could chew, we still couldn’t wait to get back the next Friday.
Here are a few highlights from the past year of house labor.
