Another week has come and gone, and I’m a week behind on my blogging — with pretty good reason, too!
My crew has been working really long days and straight through their weekends in order to keep up with production on the house, since the trades are all making huge advances these days, and there are a lot of pictures to prove it.
If this is the first time you’re dropping in to looking at this project, I’d suggest going back to the beginning of this amazing Rocky Mountains Italian lime Venetian plaster project in Banff, right here.
I’ve been loving the level of work from everyone involved in this project. Get a load of this amazing buffalo design in the stone flooring, at the main entrance.
It’s almost like a giant puzzle, isn’t it? I bet there’s a lot of people who’d love to put a puzzle this size together, but I sure wouldn’t. The precision needed to lay this tile is a pretty rare skill, even at this level of the game.
Talk about a mistake getting set in stone… Not for me, thanks. I’ll leave that to the pros.
Here’s another look at the stone buffalo, from the second floor.
A little trivia for you: Did you know that Alberta’s home to one of the two last continually wild North American buffalo herds?
Details are critical with a masterful build like this one, where everyone’s brought their A++ game. Here’s Kelvin getting all those reveals smooth and level. It’s looking great, and we know he’ll keep it up.
Here’s one of my favourite areas of the whole build: the back patio, with its massive fireplace.
All work and no play makes Darrell and the boys unhappy. I’m no dummy, we can’t have that! No trip, not even a work one, to Banff, Alberta, is complete without hitting the local slopes. Here’s us, off to Sunshine Village for a little powder action.
Thanks for sticking around as my epic work adventure continues.
Stay tuned for more soon!
