It's crazy to think about how much I miss the crew. I can't remember how I spent my days before Greensaw. Although there was that year with C2 Architecture developing the plan. That was fun too. I've been kickin' around the house, not sure exactly how to spend my time. Should I do laundry? should I do art? I know, poor me... No, I get it. It's time to move on. Last year flew by. And now, it seems like such a long time ago.
I can't take you through all of the construction videos and not show you some of the end project. So check back from time to time. As I kick around the house I'll take some pics and post them.
The photo at the top of this page looks so much like the drawing that C2 Architecture drew in the plan, it's uncanny. To give you a little background info, the old family room had a fireplace and we said to Jim, "We don't care about the fireplace, you can keep it in or get rid of it." Jim suggested keeping the mantle as a focal point. Then I suggested a "fake" fireplace using tile to make the fire colors inside. We both agreed it was a good idea. He had a source for the big yellow pine that we used for the mantle and also the reclaimed lumber that we used for the floor. I had already begun my club bell collection so even the drawings had images of the clubs on the mantle. There are five clubs each one representing a family member. Niko and his Greensaw crew built the mantle and window seats featured on each side of the mantle. All of the tile that we used throughout the house was handmade from a company named Mercury Mosaics Tile. The top photo shows my Japanese plate collection I added that later. I love anything Japanese and I especially love blue and white plates. Some of the smaller plates are from the 30's and 40's.
