I am always excited, thrilled, nervous and perplexed when we get the go-ahead from a client who has graciously agreed to allow us to put their home on tour. Excited because it is so much fun showing and telling folks on the tour what we did to the home and watching their faces as they begin to comprehend the transformation. Thrilled because the projects are such a testament to the amazing work we do. Nervous because this is someone’s home – full of their treasures and beloved pieces that make the house their home and I want to make sure that no damage occurs to anything. Perplexed because I can’t believe that anyone would let us allow 500 people into their home over a weekend!  And for this year’s tour I am going to add one more word to the list…awed.

I am awed by the setting of this home – so close to the Huron River that you can seemingly touch it from different areas of the home. I am awed by the creative redesign done by Meadowlark designer Jen Hinesman that quiets the sharp angles created during the earlier 1990’s remodel and allows for the spaces to flow through the home in a softer, gentler fashion. I am awed by the quality of craftsmanship that I have come to expect from Meadowlark Project Manager Joe Scanlon. I am awed by the fact that these clients barely blinked before saying “yes” to putting their home on tour. I am awed because we have created another relationship of trust and respect with our clients, and finally I am in awe because we have added some more unique and wonderful clients to our Meadowlark family.

This home is a beauty…come to see it on the tour. You won’t be disappointed – you will be awed!
