Thanks for checking back!
1st and foremost...we've booked some events!!! A holiday party, a retirement party, a birthday party and a couple of weddings. Even Troy Dance Factory is coming in to shoot some magical videos! We are off to the races and excited/grateful beyond words.
...and the inquires keep pouring in! Let's make it happen!
The work never stops inside these walls. We continue to sand, paint, hammer, pry, putty, screw, lift, arrange, assemble, adhere, hang, fill, sweep, mop, and wipe down every inch of this place. We're trying to focus on one project at a time but it's been tough. So much to do and so eager to do it all at once. Side note: Endless thanks to our families (particularly our dads) for the countless hours of help they have already provided...with many more to come. Friends have chipped in too and we can't express how appreciative we are.
Furniture and décor continue to be collected too! Claw foot couches, marble end-tables, antiques, and mirrors on mirrors on mirrors. The Barbershop is filling up with a pool table, foosball table, putting green, leather couch and flat screen tv. The Rosemary has been painted and the furniture is being arranged. The bar and ballroom are getting fun little add ons as well. We got the entry hallway looking grand again with a brand new covering of elegant wallpaper!
Also, we would be crazy not to mention all of the news friends and allies we've made...all of whom will be mentioned in a later blog (this is what they call "a tease" I think) BUT we NEED to give an ENORMOUS thanks to Troy Cloth & Paper. They have generously donated numerous prints to help decorate our space with their sweetest designs. Everyone needs to do themselves a favor and check them out.
I guess that's it for now. Thanks again for reading this and keeping up with our progress! Check out the gallery below. Heidi finally broke out her camera to get some updated shots. iPhone photos don't always do the space justice!
