Mtn Home Proofs

ing-house

Whew! Finally finishing up with the TQ Mountain Home Award write-ups! I love this issue (and I know I say that every year about this time) but seeing these amazing houses and then being able to explore what makes them so special is one of my favorite annual traditions.

For this issue, I took on five houses, four in Martis Camp and one in Reno. It’s amazing the breadth of design: One was a showstopper of a house with features like imported French oak flooring, a human-sized fireplace hearth and two-story wine walls. Another was impressive because of its well-crafted simplicity, a feat much harder to achieve than it seems.

In addition to the Home Awards articles, I also wrote a piece for TQ’s Arts column about functional art for the home, where I interviewed a metalworker, a woodworker and a potter. All very different, but each interesting and unique! We’re in the proofing stage now, so only a little longer until the magazine is in print—I’m looking forward to seeing and reading about the other magnificent homes featured, as well!
