Rocking and Rolling along: progress at the GC house

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

a few weeks ago the GC house looked like this...

but now we are rocking along

{I know, I know-- horrible iphone pics-and it's being lit by work lights. no CO=no electricity}

I love watching craftsmen work! Although I am pretty sure they think I am a bit of a stalker--we have a wee bit of a language barrier so they probably wander why I am always staring at them and taking their pictures. But seriously..I love to watch all of my subs work--the painters, the tile installers, the carpenters...there is so much to learn from the techniques of great subs!   

We are moving on up {the ladder} and rolling along in the library. Still need to install swing arm sconces and chandelier, add cushions, stain the floors and add a million and one books. But we are getting closer!

The closets have all been customized to the owners needs.


One of our subs customized the closets {above}, and pantries {yes plural!} as well as the library. There is also built-in storage in the garage and in the guestroom. There is sooo much storage in this house! A way to save money when building custom closets is to get one of your subs to build it as opposed to a custom closet company. This particular job was one-third of what a closet company wanted to charge. 

Let's browse through some other very smart, reasonable and beautiful storage solutions.

lazy susans for purse and shoe storage! lined drawers for jewelry. yes, please.
Update!! The baby giraffe was born last night!! You can witness the birth by looking in the archives {happened @11:45pm} and you can watch Baby G playing in the barn through the Live feed.
An amazing thing to see!!
