One of our goals for every project is to connect people to the natural environment in subtle ways. This light fixture is a perfect example of that: it is the star pattern from that exact location on the day we broke ground on the house. While you’re enjoying dinner, you’re also seeing from the light of the stars—without even realizing it.
The house is basically finished! There are still some final items to cross off the punch-list, but the major systems are go and we’re cleaning things up.
One of the cool features of the waterfall room is that it’s still awesome when the water isn’t running.
A few onyx boulders, 3/4 ton of granite chipped gravel, and a little bit of imagination. And a lot of heavy lifting!
The hardwood floors are finished and look incredible.
The Wolf/Sub-zero kitchen package is here, installed, and looking awesome.
The pad and carpet are installed in the bedrooms, closets, and common room
The machines are going and the first coat of polyurethane will be applied this afternoon!
The calm before the storm. Hardwood finishing starts tomorrow!

This is the view from the nook side of the master bedroom looking through the 3-sided fireplace out at the Ten Mile range.
The wood floors are fully installed and ready to be finished (which will happen next week).
As the electricians approach the finish, here are a few photos of more lights.
These pendants from Tech Lighting will help Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow no matter what the weather holds!

The electricians are cranking out their final work: installing switches, outlets, and fixtures. This is looking at the ceiling in the living room above the fireplace.
This has remained in a crate for protection until we were ready to stain and install it. Standing five feet wide and eight feet tall, it is impressive to behold.
Nathan from Authentic Fine Woodworking built these in his shop and just brought them up to the site for install. The lumber is all reclaimed barnwood from Oregon.
The crew from Peak One Painting has been working non-stop to get this house looking fresh!
