I can’t stay away for another two weeks. What was supposed to be an almost month long break has come to a close. Since I’ve been gone I have discovered that writing is a nice way to deal with stress. Ironic since writing is also a great cause of stress. Let’s not waste any more time discussing my first world problems. You want to know about The House!
My conversation with our GC (Bill) this past Saturday regarding paint colors:
Me: Our town home has a lot of warm colors that seem a little dark. I’m leaning toward lighter colors this time around.
Me: You know how when you’re dating and you go out with someone and they have dark hair? Maybe that doesn’t work out so well so you decide to date a blonde? I think that’s what’s happening here.
Bill: *laughs* Okay.
Our exterior sconces were put up Saturday by Rich the electrician. I ordered them online and guessed at how they would look in terms of scale (revisit the feature image to see the lights in the context of the exterior). They look good! They use LED bulbs so we shouldn’t have to change them for a decade or so.
The Man Cave
The rule is I get to design the entire house with the exception of The Man Cave. Of course I have opinions. As any wise spouse would do Parch has allowed me to believe that my opinions have been taken into consideration. When we first met he lived in a loft downtown (converted from a paper printing factory – very cool). The Man Cave is a shout out to his former digs.
If you need a refresher of what the basement bathroom was like before then check this out.
Here is The Man Cave as of last week:
After Ben finishes the patch work the floor will be sealed and we’ll start moving some of our things over. I’m looking forward to it!
Thanks for reading and have a Joyful Day!
