Days Away from Opening

Jun14th2017

Good morning all my wonderful friends and followers! A quick note to remind you of Honey B’s opening on Saturday, June 17th! We have a crew here trying to install the deck as quick as we can so we have a place to visit and set out some items. Cutting it close I know! But the weather hasn’t exactly been cooperating 🙁 It will all work out though!

I booked the opening on the same day as The Vintage with Flair market in Bragg Creek which I know may be a difficulty for some of you to attend both, I was unaware at the time! Mine is in the late afternoon Saturday so it could make for a really fun day to go to Flair’s market and then zip over to mine! I hope so! I would certainly do that :))) Who would turn down an entire day of vintage shopping!?

I’m going to have a lot of furniture that I’ve just posted on the website and I’m preparing a “bargain” centre as well where there will be some great deals!

Hope the sun is out and your shopping mode is on! Here’s some pics of the shop to boost your enthusiasm! Also a map to find us!

Saturday, June 17th  1:00-5:00pm Free Admission

215 Blueridge Rise – private residence. Please park on the street above. Thankyou!!

 

 

Renovation Progress

Jul1st2016

Well we’ve got some really exciting things going on now with the house with the installation of some stunning features. It seems like a long time between posts but the process of making each and every one of these features is time consuming. I really appreciate the team for putting all the effort in that they do…such artists! I love love love every thing about this house!

This is a maple live edge slab that we incorporated onto the counter in the basement. It’s on the side of the dining room and faces over into the family media room. I think I found some great stools to go with the look, they are simple polished nickel round stools that match the light fixture and table base. I haven’t pictured them until I decide for sure but there will be more photos to come.

This isn’t the actual furniture I’m putting in this room but because we sold our other house and are moving into the basement, we put our upstairs furniture in here to live with while the upstairs is completed. Should be another 60 days or so!

The other exciting addition was the install of these stunningly beautiful rustic beams put in the master bedroom. They are from a 100 year old building salvaged in Manitoba, all hand hewn with incredible personality, patina and complete with the worm holes. The crew does a treatment wherein they are cleaned with a spinning brush instrument. Then they were clearcoated to seal and bring out those wonderful colour tones. I can’t stop going upstairs just to admire them over and over.

That’s the current status! There’s lots going on though with tiling in the basement kitchen, installation of sound systems, satellite television and internet. The closets are being constructed and the carpet is going in on Monday next week. Officially July 8th will be our move in date and I can’t wait!

 

 

 

 

 

Renovation Update

Feb16th2016

Hello all! Things are coming along at the acreage….here’s an update on our progress!

IMG_4725

First door hung! Just the casing along the perimeter needs to be added on.

IMG_4726

Look at that wood detail!

IMG_4733

Doors for the upper floor.

IMG_4727

That’s a piece of drywall sitting in front of the barn door….should have moved it for the photo, but this is the finished barn door from the hallway to the sunroom.

IMG_4728

Designed and made as a special surprise for us from Rick, he knew how much I wanted to bring some chevron into the house and went ahead and produced this stunning door. How nice is that? He’s now making a matching mini dutch door for the mudroom.

IMG_4729

Ceiling work in the family room almost completed. There is a white trim that will cap the braces (shown in raw wood) going towards the middle. A square diamond shaped cap will be applied to the centre and then we have a ceiling fan to be mounted on top of it.

These babies are outer corner pieces for the family room ceiling (there’s a fourth one not shown). They remind me of waves of water….

IMG_4730

Fireplace has been painted in a semi-gloss white. Window trims yet to be installed. This room will be our primary family space. I made some wonderful large carpet pillows to flank the hearth!

IMG_4731

View from the family room into the kitchen area. A long counter with cabinetry will stretch across under the kitchen window with a farm sink in the middle. I’ve always dreamed of an old fashioned farm sink! So excited! There will be a live edge eating bar coming part way across the opening (on the left side) open into the family room with a couple of stools.

IMG_4736

Down into the basement here. The metal support columns are now boxed in and awaiting the paint finish.

IMG_4737

Basement laminate flooring looking good! I opted for a subtle modern look down here…some metallics such as the chrome light fixture picks up some sparkle. I want to use chrome in the kitchen adjacent to the dining area as well.

IMG_4743

Dining area for the kitchen suite. I love the view…there’s often squirrels running about just outside the window.

IMG_4738

Floor picks up some soft greys and taupes.

IMG_4739

Our painters worked hard to do a complimentary match to the floor finish on the doors and casings. They look great!

IMG_4753

Temporary stairs leading to the upper floor coming out next week to install floating stairs.

IMG_4749

Heading upstairs to the bedroom level.

IMG_4751

Light sconces from Restoration Hardware.

IMG_4745

This is a smaller bedroom which has no closet. I have a large antique wardrobe I’m going to place in here, a lovely feminine style table desk with chair and make this room into a linen storage and sewing room.

IMG_4748

LOVE the light pattern from this chandelier in the grandbabies room!

IMG_4755

Still in the grandbabies room. Planning on a shoe closet on the left side, a girl’s dream come true! The right closet will have a slide in chest of drawers with upper hanging area.

IMG_4752

Upstairs guest bath. I put this wardrobe storage piece in to consider whether it will be useful…not sure, it may interfere with the shower entrance…..decision yet to be made.

IMG_4756

Master bathroom tiling now done. Awaiting vanities, mirrors and additional lighting.

IMG_4759

Master bathroom walk in shower is ready for glass.

IMG_2535

That wraps up this weeks progress and we are so looking forward to finishing up some of the details. The basement and upper floor is really coming along and once they are done we can section them off and focus on the main level. Still lots to tackle including the kitchen which is as always the hub of a house. I’m so glad we have been able to work with an astounding team that allows us to make decisions along the way. I find (for me anyways) that making decisions and seeing the outcome before moving to the next decision is so helpful. Until next time…god bless!
