Hi Veronica. I've written separate blog posts describing each floor plan in detail. These may help you decide which floor plan is right for your family, and therefore which study plan to choose. For Shelter No 1 see this post: http://www.assortmentblog.com/assortment/2015/01/on-shelter-1.html For Shelter No. 2 see this post: http://www.assortmentblog.com/assortment/2015/01/on-shelter-2.html You can also find these links by clicking the House Plans! tab at the top of the blog's main page. Fun news: Shelter No. 2 will be coming out tomorrow!

Hi Kathy! The photos in this post (aside from the one with our slipcovered sofa) are photos of other houses that inspired the design process of the Shelter collection. I'm sorry I have no knowledge about where to source that particular vanity.

When the rain pats at the tin roof and the petals of yokey sunshine burst in the jar on the dining table, it's spring. When the dog comes in all silly-smiled and tongue-lolled, tracking a mud-trail behind, it's spring. When... Continue reading

It's not very often that I get to sit by his side, suspended in the sky by what seems an invisible thread, literally watching the world go by. This is his element. Here he is fully alive. Here thousands of... Continue reading

We sat in the morning sun, he & I, listening to the creek burble. It was the kind of time that settles you and we took it with gratitude by the fistsful. Mindful of the sickness that's still hanging on... Continue reading

We are using Woca oil. It's my first time specifying the product, but other designers have recommended it and we've fallen in love with our test pieces, and are excited to see the finished result.

I have to say, my right-hand-man has been by my side this winter, making all this possible! It truly is a joint effort & I couldn't do it without him!

I'm currently working on an inspiring project for some great clients. It's new construction and the timeline is VERY crunched, so I find myself working on it in my head 24/7, and at my desk almost as much (or so... Continue reading

He asked me if I'd pay him a dollar to tie five flies. I said sure. That's the first wooly bugger, there. I think it looks scrumptious. But then, he tied another and went on to something else. For now,... Continue reading

Oh, it'll come! It will. This is an unusually early spring for us. We're a bit nervous, actually, that the snow is gone and the temps are so warm already.

I feel very new to caring for orchids myself! This is my first one, and I got it a year ago when it was in bloom. I've just kept it in moderate light and watered it about a tablespoon a week (it's a miniature). The rest, it did all on its own :). I need to read more about them myself!

I feel for you! Maybe it will help to know that this is an unusually early spring for the Rockies?

Oh, how nice if it were that kind of bay; the sun-warmed, surf-soaked, gull-studded kind. I'm afraid the experience these last few days hasn't been nearly as nice, here in the sickbay. But, even though, at one point I was... Continue reading
