A House is Born Part V

This week Construction was moving fast! They are almost done with the framing process.
This home is looking great! The surrounding landscape is doing great and responding beautifully!

The Within Studio trend is Details Details Details! I just cannot get enough of them!
Walking on to a job site is like candy land to me! There is such beauty in the details, and sometimes we take them for granted. This metal stake in the ground had such color, actually, my wedding colors! ha!

The exterior fireplace
Every room in the house has splendid Views!

Standing in the office.
View from the master bath window.
I have to have my red details!

The beautiful Saguaros looking great!
We built the house specifically around this hugging couple.
They were our inspiration.

Do you ever stop and look at how something is made? To really appreciate its angles, its color, its complexity...

The Happy Couple.

Just like Ferris Bueller said
"Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it"

It's these little guys that hold this structure together... how many times do you stop and say, thank you whoever created the nail, thank you very much. You're helping this house stand strong.

I love this image. If you search online for the word "Architect" you get a bunch of photos of guys with cool glasses pointing at a drawing. And here it is! It's so true! That is exactly what happens!
The Architect on this job is Ben of IncCite Architect. He's amazing! A truly gifted and exceptional Artist. We were standing here discussing the ceiling of the client's office.

my little boots on site.

Watching these guys build is amazing. They stand on the very very very last step and balance themselves through simple physics. It's truly a mastered art!

More cool job site details.

These are the bricks from 1880! Recycled from an old Chicago street.

aaaaa.. perfect balance...
More photos to come soon!
Framing will be complete in March and then starts the fun stuff!
Cheers all!

That's McNellis. I knew it by the saguaros. Nice to see it finally going up.
