This past week we celebrated our two-year anniversary of working with DeForest Architects. Partnering with this architectural firm, headed by John DeForest, has been the best decision in the whole project. John is masterful at so many things - design, communication, process, life - and has been a wonderful architect for us. He's simply the best.
Much has happened at the house the past 6 weeks or so. The roof has been covered with a torchdown material, as has the upper deck, and all the windows are installed, including the lift-fold doors in the dining room - which look fantastic!

Outside, the exterior siding has been going up - both the Hardie paneling and the Hardie planks; the cedar siding will come a little later.

and inside, the plumbing, electrical and low-voltage rough-ins are all done. Paul and I have brought over two chairs and a little table so that we can have a cup of coffee in the mornings or a glass of wine in the evenings when the workers aren't there. A little bit of heaven.
