One month in High River
We knew that Stephen Morgan, CEO of SEED Homes was dropping by yesterday for a visit. Both Heather and I, and by osmosis our painters, felt the urge to clean things up and put the home's best foot forward. Stephen had not seen the house for a number of weeks and we were all eager to see his reaction. The final trim work that happened to close off the seam between the walls and ceiling, combined with the outstanding filling, sanding and painting that Dave and Elizabeth did, creates a bit of a WOW response. It looks so good.
"The light is incredible," said another.
Stephen was transfixed as he stood in the foyer and saw everything. His mouth was slightly open and his eyes bright with delight as he took in the result of six months of hard work by a dedicated team of people. The house had transformed into a beautiful home. The idea of SEED Homes that was birthed a year ago around a CEGEN board room table had become reality. I honestly can't image what was going through his mind and heart as he stood there in awe.
I'm having a difficult time sleeping, which has nothing to do with the house and everything to do with my body. Even though I'm exhausted when I go to bed, my leg and hip get sore and I need to get up, sit at the dining table for a bit before laying down and trying to sleep again. Some nights, this process happens more than once. The way the house is laid out allows me to deal with my restless legs without bothering Heather. Even though the house is much smaller than what we had before, there is still plenty of options to give each other the space we need at various times of the day, including in the middle of the night.
