the polycarbonate panels have been installed on the carport, fireplace face plate has been installed (though wrong model...so goes the story of construction sometime) and the mailbox and doorbell have arrived. all the personal touches are nicely going in. we've got sod next on the list and the never ending list of punch-out items. slowly but surely this house is coming together. we've had some friends come through, and even several drive by - and the consensus so far is that this would be one sweet party house. that is music to my ears, since our initial design idea was to create an inviting space for small to large gatherings. with a spacious living room, a huge off living room deck and an intimate patio space on the otherside of the home...a wondering guest easily float around. can't wait to see how the home works with a party.
