We spent over two years designing this house; and it was a luxurious amount of time for dreaming and planning, that’s for sure. The one overriding thought during the whole process was the parties that were waiting to be held. Birthdays, anniversaries, end-of-baseball season, bonfire, midsummer and simple dinner parties. Plan the house for the parties.
We finally got the chance to throw the first party for Chadd’s birthday, and yes, it was a success. The huge island was able to accommodate all the pre-dinner snackies, plates, wine bottles and glasses; as well as three lasagnas worth of home made noodles, waiting patiently in their dusting of flour before assembly. Yes, there was still enough counter space to make dinner while the guests mingled! And we were able to have more than 10 people in the house! And there was still extra room!
So, yes…we are doing it again soon; very, very soon!
