They're building a Mid-Century Modern Home

They're building a Mid-Century Modern Home
This home features Mid-century details.
Here are some quick excerpts from the delightful blog describing the building of Plan 438-1 in Knoxville, Tennessee, and now nearing completion. The plan, by architect Robert Nebolon, is inspired by the Mid-Century Modern houses built by developer Joseph Eichler in Northern and Southern California during the 1950s and 1960s.

"Wow!  Week 12 was an amazing week at the lot!  The framing guys were ON FIRE and really got a TON of the framing done! View from the street (above, at the top the post). You can see the skylights sprinkled around.  The left side will eventually look like one continuous piece, but the space behind it will be a trellis."

Sparkies in the Bath

Design for the master bath
We spent today concentrating on the task at hand,  Electrical and Plumbing in our master bath.  Specifically we concentrated on the vanity wall.  The Sparkies (aka. electricians) are in this week to wire the house with electricity. That means we had to flesh out the design in the bathroom.  It makes so much more sense to plan things out now that we can see the space in life, 4d, vs. the 2 dimensional world looking at the designs on paper plans.  I had drawn up a plan previously in my sketch book for cabinetry.
Bath design number 1
Scott found this bath vanity set online and we are going to order 2 of these and piece it together to create this fabulous vanity wall design that you see here.
