SIX MORE WEEKS!
We had a blast hanging out with Steve Thomas of Renovation Nation, a new show on Discovery Channel. We'll let you know when it airs this September! He is so bright, hilarious and easy on the eyes!
David and I are thrilled that we only have SIX weeks left on our eco-remodel (fingers crossed). Did you see the feature in the NY Times yesterday - "The New Trophy Home, Small & Ecological?" Seems "smallering" (creating a sanctuary green home in a smaller footprint) is getting sexier. We are moving into a 1915 Craftsman with less than 1500 square feet, and this is a big change from our Berkeley Hills home of 2400 square feet. Today our Canyon Construction crew is working on finalizing the kitchen with our Silver Walker no-formaldehyde cabinets and ordering the Syndacrete cabinets. Our crew just finished rehanging all the original fir trim throughout the house. Some of it doesn't look so great around our brand-new double paned windows from Marvin, but we'll cope with that when Paint Man comes next week.
