No finagling here that I'm aware of. Terri is the pro at that kind of stuff. Just putting a few thoughts online now and then, staying busy with other daily interests and commitments, and of course ironing out the last wrinkles of my upcoming travel plans.
Stay in touch, Janzee. It's a pleasure to have a hello now and then from such a dear friend.
Nonetheless, there's another dream home waiting out there just for you. This one is set in Burbank, CA, an English Tudor/French Normandy estate owned by Emmy-winning Marco Zappia. It's available right now for $2.199 million.
Along with 7,850 square feet, five bedrooms and six baths, it's got six fireplaces, an elevator and a gift-wrapping and craft room. If you missed out on the Lake Tahoe Dream Home you'll have to check this one out to see if Zappia's whimsically ornate mansion should be your dream getaway. http://www.frontdoor.com/coolhouses/of-course-thi...
Wake up, check the DH blog... and guess what? Same old, same old! Life is destined to repeat itself, day after day, until, suddenly one morning, we get it right, and everything's different. That, however, will take some input from our blog editor Virginia.
In the meantime, here's to repeating the past... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSVeDx9fk60
Of course, I really don't know if reaching this level of commentary is a milestone or a millstone. Possibly some degree of both.
Oh well, I know we'll all meet up again soon in 2015 -- at the Dream Home 2015 location that is!
If you have a dedicated Media Room or Home Theater, go big or go home -- someone else's home, that is, who has a room-filling screen.
If not, and your TV shares the space with other design and function focal points or household activities, it's all in the proportions.
See suggestions above in Laurie's Blog Cabin Media Room post: http://blog.hgtvremodels.com/2014/03/10/blog-cabi...
So in the meantime, for the sake of SOME kind of news to peruse, try this: Flip or Flop? "HGTV will premiere a second 13-episode arc of the hugely popular Flip or Flop on Tuesday, April 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The series, which follows young flippers Tarek and Christina El Moussa as they turn houses for a profit, attracted more than 9 million viewers P25-54 and delivered double-digit ratings growth in its time slot during its 2013 freshman run. In the second season, there will be many more nail-biting purchases at auction and challenging renovations for HGTV’s newest breakout stars."
And, if that won't hold you over until April 15th's DH Winner's Special Reveal, if you happen to be passing through Taiwan on March 28-29, stop by the Grand Hy-Lai Hotel for a couple entertaining evenings of cunning culinary creations by master chef Martin Yan.
Chef Yan will "showcase his signatures dishes in an eight course menu created specially for this event. Guests can look forward to dishes like Tea Smoked Duck Breast, Seafood Soup served with Sizzling Rice and Pomegranate Sorbet, Chopped Lychee and edible flower for garnish."
I'm sure you won't want to miss it -- unless you have to stay around the house awhile to sign off on the Dream Home winner's disclosure documents, etc, etc. Just be sure you keep us informed about the highlights of either event via the blog. We promise not to tell anyone's hush-hush secrets.
I'm hoping Virginia will feel free to add any additional comments....
