Hello Tod. It has been awhile since we last talked. Mike and I have spent the past month putting the Pine Street house to bed for the winter. Because it will be empty for six months there is reason to touch every surface and dig into every corner. The entire time I am engaged in that activity, I am also consumed with appreciation for the work that was done on this property.
We are coming onto our 17th year here and I continue to be amazed that everything looks as beautiful as the day we moved in. It remains, in my eyes, a timeless work of art. One that would never exist in the form it does, without your vision and effort. We just want you to know that not a day goes by without our feeling fortunate and grateful that you took the project on with all it's challenges.
Tod, this week the sun will hit the fireplace at precisely 4 pm, just as you promised. We have never taken for granted the details that were considered by you and just wanted to share a warm fuzzy greeting before we take off for the winter. The house was indeed, a co-creation. However, in order for that to happen one needs an architect who includes the home owner on every level. The ability to bring the dreams of others to life is a great gift. How lucky we were to find you. Hope all is well with you.
