~~Bring Your Blog Buddies to Work Day~~
Today I had to go to Northampton to measure two kitchens in a lovely home that's under construction. I figure if I have to work today...then I'm dragging the rest of you with me!
And no matter how much I may need to potty...I ain't using one of those portable ones on a construction site...NO WAY!...... Anyhoo back to work.
My clients are the Carpenter's...two really nice people....And this is going to be their new kitchen. Okay I know it doesn't look like a kitchen yet...but that's why I'M HERE! And this one is gonna be a beauty...check out the high ceilings! This kitchen is about 17 feet x 16 feet and will have a 8 foot center island. Their taste is very contemporary which isn't my thing...but hey it's their money...and I want some of it hehehe.
Ooohh check out the cute construction worker through the window.
OOPS...don't be getting distracted now...back to work.This is the breakfast nook...I love love love the ceilings in here. I can't wait to see them finished.
I could sure make this fireplace work in my house! Well...I could if I removed the roof! There is nothing like 20 foot ceilings. they are still debating about whether to use stone or brick on this baby....I sure hope they go for stone. It would look amazing.
While I'm measuring I glance out the family room window...and what do I see but this gorgeous victorian.....I gotta remember to drive around the block when I leave so I can check out the front of that house!
Now I know I'm only here to design the kitchen...but ya gotta snoop around right? Check out this soaking tub...it's just big enough to sit in. And has a gazillion jets. It would be nice to soak clear up to your neck....but how do you get out of that thing??? It's pretty deep!
Off to the lower floor. This will be another kitchen. This floor is being done for their elderly parents. What you'll notice is that this kitchen is the same size as the upstairs kitchen! The only difference is that the ceilings are only 10 feet high instead of 20 feet...how dreary...gosh how will they not bump their heads???
Alright...our work here is done. But that doesn't mean there isn't time to go check out the neighborhood. I think I could force myself to live here.
OH OH OH I think I see that Victorian we saw out the window!
HOLY FREAKING BAT CRAP....check out that copper dome thingie...what a stunning house!(ya gotta double click on this picture to see all the details)
AND JUST DOWN THE BLOCK.....CHECK IT OUT...ONE BIG MAMAJAMMA HUNKIN HOUSE!
Bummer...no more goofin off. It's time to earn a living. In about 3 to 4 months I will hopefully have some finished photos to share. That is if they still like me enough to let me in to take pictures!
