Drywall Y’all!

At long last, WE HAVE DRYWALL!!! Do you know what this means? It means we’re less than 60 days away from closing. It’s a huge milestone in the homebuilding process. We went to see the house last Thursday and it looked like this:

Living Room Drywall

Check out all that natural light… beautiful! Our last house was very dark so we’re pretty excited to see sunbeams streaming through those windows.

Kitchen Drywall And here’s a view into the kitchen and straight down the hallway to the front door.

Michael in front yard We were pretty stoked to see the progress made in one week. This week they’ll be doing the final grading on the lot and building the deck out back, plus we’ll get all the millwork installed (crown moulding, baseboards, cabinets, etc.). Fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly.

In other news, I made a one-day trip to Atlanta on Friday to drop off an oriental rug to London Varner of DeRigeur Vintage. He’s going to overdye it in a beautiful aqua color and I should have it back in about 3 weeks. We did the transfer at a Starbucks in Midtown and I swear it was like a drug deal was going down only it was with rugs. That’s how I roll, folks.

While in Atlanta I absolutely had to visit the local Jonathan Adler store. I’ve been to J.C. Penney and seen some of his products there, but it’s just not the same. Nothing compares to being able to touch all those wonderful pieces of pottery in person. I walked away with this:

and this:

Yeah I know, it’s a bit Clockwork Orange-ish, but it’s so cool I had to get it. I have OCOSOD (obsessive-compulsive “ooh! shiny object!” syndrome). It was a miracle I didn’t do severe financial damage at JA Atlanta. The store is teeming with bright colors, bold graphics, and lots of texture.

Jonathan Adler Atlanta That’s all I have to report for now, but stay tuned because I’ll be posting up details for a massive estate sale we’re about to hold in a local office space here in Nashville. Wish us luck!
