studio loft: the desk saga continues
- Published on Tuesday, 20 March 2012
Posts on the studio loft have been slow because progress on the desk has been slow.

The last remaining step was to fill any voids and apply the finish before the big install....

Ok, so we already showed you what we have in mind for the basic nursery layout, but over the last several months I’ve been thinking more and more about specifics like colors, patterns and furniture. Pregnancy can be pretty overwhelming (so much to learn! so many decisions to make!), but the nursery – well, this is...

A few weeks ago, we showed you those two big reclaimed beams that we bought to build a work surface for the studio loft space. It would be easy – two beams turned on their side and connected together. Boom! Insta-desk!
But of course, it’s never that easy.
We had a rough idea of how we wanted to install the desktop,...

We had our big 2nd trimester ultrasound today and were beyond excited to see a healthy GIRL!
Most of our family and friends were predicting a girl (as did a few old wives tales) and we couldn’t be happier. With three boys in the house already (Kyle, Bailey and Felix), it was high time we leveled the playing field a bit....

- Published on Monday, 20 February 2012
Between travelling, skiing and recurring colds, work on the house has slowed down a bit lately. But we still made some good progress, like this:
A big thanks to a few of our readers who had the genius idea of installing casters under our IKEA Stolmen units. (We considered steel hairpin legs or building a wood plinth, but the...

Last Thursday we boarded a plane and flew two hours south to Los Angeles for a weekend of sun, family and musical extravaganza.
It was sunny and warm when we got there, so we headed straight to the beach.
Obligatory babymoon shot.
Near Muscle Beach, Kyle out to prove that he’s still got it!
