Are you ready? We are!

It's almost showtime! A new generation of ideabox is about to begin with The Seattle Home Show and the official introduction of our new house. It's exciting for us who have lived with the design from the initial concepts through design development to walking through the finished product.

In the last week the quartz composite kitchen & bath counters and the concrete and broken glass island counters were installed. Following that the stainless Kitchenaid appliances completed the kitchen and the Kohler Ying Yang vessel sinks and fixtures were installed in the baths. The finishing touches to a northwest modern design.

With our incredible fall weather of bright blue skies, crispy air, and changing colors we've had all six of the 8' tall sliding glass doors open swallowing it all up! We can't wait to get the decks off all the rooms, the very cool landscaping surrounding the house by in harmony sustainable landscapes, and interiorscape by modern design sofas.

And if that isn't enough, (I mean you would think that is enough already), we are planning on some exciting "purchasing opportunities" we'll be announcing shortly.

A quick aside - I had a couple of meetings in Seattle yesterday - one of those quick up and back days on I-5. Except that yesterday offered a truly breathtaking fall sunrise, cascading layers of fog and sun, and the color of the trees coming to life as the sun rose higher in the sky. And then leaving Seattle to catch that awe inspiring vision of Mt. Rainier against a foreground of changing leaves glistening in the afternoon sun. Then, almost like nature's own sequel, equal views of Mt. Saint Helen against the later evening sky.

It's that stuff that makes life.... life!
