We did River House stuff with Casey as she visited on her way back from a Spring Break in Big Sky, Montana. She said that she would be happy to spend the day with us doing house stuff…….Oooookayyyyyy. She did get off easy, as Jenny spent her entire Spring break week listening and looking at River House stuff.
We visited the kitchen place, looked at potential floor options, talked to our builder, and visited Eden, the interior door and trim supplier/finisher showroom. It was an all day adventure, driving in countryside and on roads we’ve never been on before.
Mom ; “…Oh. Oh, wrong turn, you just added 10 minutes to the drive time,” Dad; “ What? I’ve only been driving for 30 seconds…..maybe I can turn around?”
We asked her thoughts on interior colors and textures and she said, “I’m going to take the long way around to answer that question.” –15 minutes later, Dad; “….did you ever answer the question?” Casey: “ Oh Dad.” —- Casey, we Love YOU!
Once boiled down, her thoughts were really helpful. She asked a question about the “feel” we are looking for; Do you want a home with a warm wood feel or a place that has splinters? Said differently, an elegant look or a rustic cabin look. The description made me laugh and fits perfectly.
She also suggested that whatever is stained or looks darkest will be what is eye catching — we are thinking about Hickory kitchen cabinets, knotty Pine ceiling, clear Pine interior doors and trim, and likely a vinyl tile floor.
