An Update From World Headquarters

IMG_6160

We’re making good progress on the house and World Headquarters is coming along nicely.  Come on in, I’ll show you around.

Twist twist twist, up the stairs we go.  The walls have just been textured.  I begged and pleaded (not really but it does sound dramatic, doesn’t it?) for the lightest possible texture they could do, without going smooth.  I’m really happy with the way they turned out.

The window at the top of the stairs ended up being framed in by my mistake, but I’m so glad to have it.  It’s really nice to have that beautiful light streaming in at the top of the stairs.

It’s sort of like a little hint of the light to come once you step into World Headquarters:

Originally, World Headquarters was designed a bit differently, with more walls, which I wasn’t too excited about.  Craig was able to make some adjustments with the trusses, enabling me to have more space.  And more openness.  Every time I walk in here, I feel inspired.  It’s what wide open spaces do to me.  I’m so excited that this is where I’ll work.  And I’m so thankful for such an amazing builder who was able to make it happen just the way he knew I wanted it to be.

And I love that I’ll be working in a barn.  Can you see it?  Seems appropriate for The Farm Chicks, doesn’t it?

Next up, the space will be painted.  I’ll be going bright white in here, with some fun touches I’ll share with you later.

We didn’t extend the radiant heat out to World Headquarters because of the cost involved.  Instead, I’ll have a ductless mini split system that will provide heat and air conditioning.

The good news with the system is that it makes wood floors possible in the space.  Rather than stained, I’ve opted for painted wood floors and stairs.

We also decided to add a full bathroom to make the space completely stand alone.  That way, employees or business guests will never have to enter the main house, keeping work and home separate, which is really important to me.

I haven’t designed the cabinetry yet, and will actually wait to do that until we’ve moved into the house.  I want to get a really good feel for the space before I make those decisions.

As you can see, there will be lots of can lights.  I do like how they just blend into a ceiling.  I’ll also have a couple of hanging light fixtures.

And the siding is nearly complete.  It will be painted in the spring.

Spring?! I can hardly wait.  It can’t come soon enough for me.  Because I just want to be settled in at home.  But for now, we’re enjoying the view of Mt. Spokane all covered in snow and that will just have to do.
