Happy Monday and hello June! Thank you for reading and for your kind words and incredible support regarding the master bath remodel. My client was sweet enough to post photos and a shout-out to my team on the Sienna Plantation Neighbors Facebook page which has resulted in some amazing feedback and a big increase in appointment requests. It’s my pleasure to answer any questions regarding material sources, colors, and of course to provide an estimate for your project. Friday was our last day at the job and I’m thrilled to share new photos with the 88” frameless glass shower enclosure featuring copper (stay with me) hardware. After debating the differences between bronze and copper over the phone, I brought one of the body sprays into the glass manufacturer to ensure we were ordering hinges and the door handle to match the plumbing fixtures and I am so glad – what they call copper was the winner and the color is stunning. The homeowner was able to test the shower on Saturday morning and tells me it’s heaven.
In administrative news, I’ve completed a new document to add to the contract package called ‘House Rules’ and here’s a peak:
As my client base is (fortunately) growing, I was looking for a way to track the details regarding their expectations of the manner their home is treated, as well as information such as access details and contact preferences in one place. This form will allow me to keep it all straight, from whether I can contact them during business hours to the names and habits of their pets. It also lays out my job site management strategies and what they can expect from my team. I’ve always felt that it’s a privilege to be invited into someone’s home, especially when asked to perform work in such sacred spaces, and want to ensure that we are doing it right and with respect.
Finally, those poor cobbler’s kids… You’ve heard the old saying the cobbler’s children have no shoes, a phenomena where people who are successful at doing something don't demonstrate it in their own lives. I’m disappointed to report this is the case in my home. Save for two of the bedrooms, we are living with the dreaded builder’s beige – two years into ownership. The good news is that I’m ready to change this and will gladly post before and after shots shortly. Until then I’m happy to share the colors we’ve chosen:
Hale Navy and Bunny Gray by Benjamin Moore and Plumage by Martha Stewart (paint is no longer available so it will be a color match mixed in Sherwin-Williams base).
At three years, my "baby" tells me he's not a baby anymore and would like his room painted as well. In red. We're working on a color ;)
If we can be of help with any projects in your home, please reach out by phone, text, email, or the contact us page on this site. Looking forward to putting the House Rules document to use for your home!
