Now With Chimneys!

And a lot more roof. After a very tiring week, I spent several relaxing hours last night working on this project. I like these medium sized projects. I won't get it done in one sitting, but I will get it done this year. But there is a lot more WDW Bark to do on the gable and house. I might skip around and do more doors and windows just so I don't have to stitch the same color for weeks at a time.

Most of this week has been spent with architects. We interviewed the last Las Vegas architect on Wednesday and flew down the San Francisco architect for all day meetings here on Thursday. Although we have interviewed a lot of Las Vegas architects, none of them seemed to have the vision and passion that we were looking for until we met Bob Sherman on Wednesday. Although we have worked with our San Francisco architect before, it was obvious when he was here that it would be difficult for him to understand the building requirements and subcontractors that he would be working with here. Tomorrow Bob is going to come by and see this house, which does have features that we love. All of this is very exciting, but it has also meant that we have kept the house pretty much spotless for over ten days. Now that is exhausting. In our copious spare time we are judging entries for our art foundation. There are some really talented artists there along with some people who entered, but who will probably never become an artist. I know we have projects that we need to tend to when we are in Maui next week, but I hope we will get some relaxing time, too. Today we will work on the foundation and listen to the rain falling on the roof. It sounds like Pachinko!

You live on Maui?! Where? I'm upcountry, and just restarted needlepoint. Precious few resources here, that's for sure!
