Speaking of cartoons, I think I miss them most of all.
Current Photo Friday theme: Downtown
The Bayou City.
I’ve been so bad about posting anything beyond Photo Friday, Snoopy Saturday, and Button Sunday, but it’s been a crazy busy summer. We’d wanted a few things done to the apartment space at Houndstooth Hall, but the heavy rains we had in May made us aware that we needed some structural repairs done first. Basically the entire summer to this point has been various workers coming and going to make this building into solid and aesthetically pleasing living space.
I failed to take before pictures–the only ones I have are when the former owner lived here, and the space was filled with so much furniture, plus I didn’t shoot from good angles, that it would be hard to provide a sense of how the Fox Den has improved. The little door knocker to the left is something we gave Tim as his housewarming gift when he moved back into the apartment after being displaced for three months (as were his dogs!).
Below are photos of Tim’s finished space with the open concept he wanted. I shot these before he began moving back in. I know he really misses that gold shag carpet from his old Compound apartment, but he’ll probably adjust to the Fox Den in time. 😉 Our contractor Keith did an amazing job of listening to the combined (and sometimes conflicting) input of Tim, Tom, and me, plus he gave good advice on the materials we chose.
