No pictures on this post, maybe tomorrow. We just did a walk through and short of some planters for the rear deck and final tweeks of the lighting and AV I think Sonoma is ready to be introduced to Portland. It has been a difficult yet rewarding build. All the team, Stan Scrutton, Ronda Divers, Chuck Buller and so many others have given their talents and hearts to this wonderful home.

As I walked through the home last evening as the sun set and the lights of the city emerge I was truly awestruck at what we have all accomplished. Sonoma is a unique home yet warm and welcoming. We hope that guests to the street will feel comfortable and enjoy Sonoma as much as we have enjoyed creating the home.

Our last street house, LaProvence, was purchased just before the show and the clients bought the house will all the furniture, art and decor. Sonoma is another one of those houses where if possible the purchaser could keep it exactly as we have completed the home. If you think about it, you get the talents and skills of the design team, furniture at a huge discount and the look that caused you to fall in love with the home.

We will be posting photos from the home over the next few days but not too many as we don't want to spoil the surprise of Sonoma. Industry Open night will be Thursday and Mid-summer Nights Dream on Friday. The MSND is a great event if you want to be the first to view the houses, it benefits a number of charities and you get a wonderful meal too.

In any case, we hope to see you at the Street and please say hello and let us know if you have been following the blog. I have had fun writing it and doing the photos of the house and people responsible for its success. Keep reading!
