It is truly a wonderful feeling to work hard to fulfill our clients’ needs and get this sort of positive feedback. Working with Devi and Duane was a total dream – they have great style and a beautiful home. Their reaction makes everything worth it. We are thrilled they love their finished home and hope that they stay in Houston and that house for many years to come! Thanks, Devi and Duane, for being AWESOME clients!! <3
P.S. Please forgive the cell phone pics – we are getting this house photographed ASAP!
Last night Houston Magazine hosted a fabulous party at the brand new Eggersmann showroom in the Design Center. Not only was the Eggersman showroom beautiful, but they actually had some of the best chefs in town including Underbelly’s Chris Sherpherd and the Uchi team cooking up delectable treats in their model kitchens! The turnout was great and we had an excellent time visiting with the Eggersmann team from Germany. We also had a little fun in the smile booth!

Old House is currently adorned with an enormous pile of dirt, complete with various plumbing pipes and old shingles sticking out at all angles. This is the point in the construction/renovation process where every homeowner has a meltdown to some degree. I thought I would be different, seeing as I handle these projects just like this all of the time. Turns out I’m not different. I may actually be worse than most! Being the OCD person that I am, I had a total meltdown over the huge pile of dirt with pipes and shingles sticking out. Speaking of shingles… I hesitate to even mention this but here goes. See my lovely new brown roof in the background. Operative word… BROWN. I thought I was getting a black roof to match my wonderful new windows and doors (which I hear are going in this weekend!). I take the brunt of the blame here.Total miscommunication on my part. I wisely said to my builder “please match the existing roof.” To me, this meant a BLACK roof, just like was on the house when I bought it, only brand spankin’ new. To my builder it meant “match the roof as it looked when it was installed 30 years ago before all of the brown part washed away and exposed all of the black part beneath it.” Hence, brown roof. Resolution to this issue to come…
And so it begins… Turns out the foundation had to be repaired because we can’t add on to a subpar slab, right!? So this week has been dedicated to foundation repair and demo of the previously mentioned creepy, possibly haunted, falling-down guest house and garage. The sunroom has also been handled. Sadly, removal of two trees from the back yard is necessary to allow for our addition, but I am planning to replace them immediately after construction wraps. Can’t wait for my Japanese Maple! I am feeling good about this!
