And we’re off! (by about 3 months)



Liane and I had wanted this to be a “warts and all” account (preferably, with warts kept to a minimum) of everything that’s brought us to where we are now: building our first house. The good and bad, ups and downs, victories and defeats, trials and travails… ALL of it.

But life’s managed to get in the way a few too many times since our first meeting with architects Will Brothers and Matthew Finley of Green Bottle Workshop on New Year’s Day (almost 8 months ago now). And while just about every other aspect of this endeavor has, more or less, managed to stay on track, here we are with our long-delayed first post. This, despite the fact that construction on 1133 Shades Crest has been underway for just over 2 weeks now.

After far, far too many years of apartment dwelling, we’re finally going to have a house. This alone would be cause enough for celebration. That we find ourselves anticipating completion of a house designed by supremely talented (and supremely modest) folks who are just as excited about seeing all of this come together as we are?

We’re not worthy!

So…anticipating completion. There’s at least 8–9 more months of that (fingers crossed), and it’s so tempting to want to wish that time away. Which is where this blog comes in. Beyond being just a document of the design and build process for our families, friends, Will and Matthew, and you, we hope that our rambling (with occasional viz aids) will enable us to appreciate every second of this experience (preferably, with warts kept to a minimum).
