Hey, it’s Doug…I actually started writing this post yesterday morning as the tornado sirens started going off here in Birmingham. The power eventually went out and after a day of scary storms I never got back here to finish the post. Luckily my neighborhood is okay (and so is our shop here in Mountain Brook) but other parts of Birmingham–and of course our neighbors in Tuscaloosa and elsewhere–were not so lucky. We’re all sending lots of Tracery love out to our friends throughout the Southeast who were effected by yesterday’s weather.
Okay, so on with what I wanted to show you yesterday. On Tuesday, Paige and I met up in Auburn to check in on a project of ours that’s nearing completion. Some clients of ours who we’ve worked with previously contacted us a couple of months ago with an interesting challenge: they were in the process of purchasing a large, almost-finished home in Auburn, Alabama and needed our help completing the project so that they could move in. We started by addressing the home’s interior architectural issues, selecting new paint colors, changing out some tile in places, and selecting right around FIFTY light fixtures (this very large didn’t have any when our clients purchased it!). Once we had the finishes and fixtures under control, we started to select new furnishings to complement pieces the family already owned.
The home is about two to three weeks from completion and is really starting to look great. Here a few shots we took yesterday…
After we left Auburn, we headed to Lake Martin to attend a job site meeting a new construction project we are designing the interiors for. The exterior of the home is really starting to come together, although the interior is a few months from completion.
