The birth pains of the deliveries began.Bulldozers, cranes, trucks, lumber, stone and steel. Workmen hustling to put a roof on before the snows arrive. When it snows it is five maybe more foot of it. Every moment my phone rang, new ideas and creative solutions were solved. As My client drove to the job site practically everyday to supervise what I could not. She catalogued everything from her i phone emailed it to me and we discussed every detail of tile, wood finishes, wood species. wall colour, window covering and textile for furniture existing and new.
Our business relationship was built on trust and communication. When we seemed to boxed in by a canyon with no resolution, we creatively tripped over an idea which actually became the revelation. It was better than the original idea.
The excitement of the walls taking shape, furniture being ordered, Galvanized steel wainscoting surrounding the outside of the lodge for when the snows arrive early in October or November . What was once sketches from an architect's drawing pad became the working drawings. The PDFs were sent via email to me, the interior designer in Portland, Oregon the vision was molded into the reality of a family vacation home in the Northern Lake Tahoe area of California.
Thank you to all that were there for me during this wonderful time of recreating my life and helping to set my goals.Thank you all who helped shape my clients vision into their wonderful piece of art known as theirModern Family Lodge.
I know that I have been transformed by this experience and look forward to many more.
