Off The Grid In Glover VT

Winter is beginning to set in so we are feeling some sense of urgency to
wrap as much up as we can before the class IV road becomes impassable
for the (long) season....:-\
Meanwhile...it seems every day that something is actually getting
finished....last week the front door hung and trimmed and balcony
railings installed, today the staircase bannisters and track doors
trimmed out, and tomorrow the awnings and starting the kitchen
casework. Our wonderful client came for a visit and unlike his more
methodical self he was like a kid in a candy store...seeing his (and
family's) vision finally coming together. While many clients are deeply
involved, on this project the design was primarily client generated and
driven with tremendous attention to detail. The mistakes?....mostly
ours...:-P ....but also mostly well worked out. The house is light and
airy and eminently vertical....literally an orchestration of woods and
geometric planes, as the (mostly) client taken pictures project.
Considering the rocky beginning we had with a trashed floor system on
the original foundation and the loss of one of our best subs--this has
evolved into a memorable marathon and a winsome watershed in our lives.
Stay tuned for a clawfoot bathtub, soapstone stove, concrete countertops
and an (a)spiring chimney....
