Just Feeding The Addiction...

Have I mentioned how much I love the creative expression that happens for me when I get to see how ideas translate into reality working on mini projects? I mean, it is better than sex+drugs+rock&roll combined! Right? It is truly an addictive behavior that I have no desire to 12 step out of, ever!

Progress is happening on Alki Point, and while it is not exactly what I had in mind, it's kind of like my kids. Mind blowingly better than I could have imagined!

Enough blah, blah, blah! Hope the photos make you as happy as they make me!







Touch ups, steps, base, landscaping next... Vinegar + Steel Wool stain turned more brown that I expected, but I am kind of digging it. We'll see... So excited!!!

    1. Thanks Shelley! It really does have a Northwest vibe to it. I need to include a Douglas Fir in the landscaping!

    1. Thanks Cyd! We have a lot of brown siding here in the Northwest, so it seems to have turned out how it should for an Alki Beach vacation rental!

    1. Thanks Giac! Now comes the varnish debate. I think a test strip is in order...

  5. Wow... Gorgeous looking! I'm so glad it's turning out the way you want! Love how it looks. If I had to live there I'd want some drapes...or blinds... That's just a little too open for me. But for mini people? Perfect!

    1. Me too, Sheila! We do a lot of summer boating here, and it always amazes me how so many homes here have no window coverings. I know the views are stellar, but I like to lounge around in my jammies a lot, and no one wants to see that! Maybe only the beautiful people go curtainless...
