Last week, I went into the TQ office to proof the Ski & Ride issue, which will be out in the next few weeks. While I was there, I was able to sit in on a meeting to choose the contestants for this year’s Home Awards. The Mountain Home issue, as I’m sure I’ve said before, is my absolute favorite issue of the year. We get to tour these outrageous properties, talk to the region’s most renowned architects and designers, and learn the inside scoops on some really incredible homes. This year’s finalists promise to be as good as ever: The majority of the home’s are located in Martis Camp, which, with looser design guidelines than many private communities, spawns some incredibly unique architecture. We’ve got a couple of lakefront estates, some very impressive commercial buildings and, my personal favorite from the applications, a home with floating glass stairs and an open, glassed-in wine cellar.
If baby lets me, I’m hoping to be able to attend the tours in the next few weeks. If baby decides to arrive a little early, I suppose I can make my peace with that!
