It's amazing what people will say around you if they don't know you are the owner -- I did enjoy eavesdropping while walking throughout the house. 99% of the comments overheard or told to us throughout the week were positive, if not glowingly so, yet it was the 1% of negative comments that made us laugh the most. So I'd like to respond to those people now:
- To the old-man who came up to specifically tell Tricia that the laundry room is a "major design flaw," no, no it is not. We had to choose between a pocket door and the way it is currently setup. It may not be ideal, but it's more than functional. Really, though, who goes up to the people who built the house and tells them that in that manner.
- The sinks in the master bath are tall, we know. You shouldn't do that in your house if you don't like it.
Also -- Yes, the projector setup is rear-projection. Yes, you COULD watch it from the other room, although it's not intended for that. Yes, I'm tired of explaining that more than anything. I understand the confusion, since it's not a common setup, but I probably gave the explanation 500 times over the week, so I'm glad to not have to do that anymore :P
Overall, though, I hope our house was able to get Gregg some good exposure, because it looked great, showed great, and it was a blast to go through the whole process. We had a decent amount of people who wanted to buy it, so that always makes you feel good.
The one strange thing with it all being over is that Gregg, Tricia, and myself have been working so much together on this over the last 9 months that it just seems odd to be stopping. As much work as it was and as much time as it took, it was a really, really fun process for both Tricia and myself (and I'll assume for Gregg too). We'll miss the excitement of the entire building process. Still, we're glad to be able to live in the house now (obviously). We'll move things in slowly over the week and be living there "full-time" by next week. I'll update with more as it happens.
