Yesterday we were pleased to have the opportunity to work with Rita Larkin, managing editor of WNC Magazine and photographer Gil Stose as they staged and photographed our new timber frame home for a future issue of the magazine.
These two professionals made this experience stress free as they focused on the elements of our timber frame that make it unique and sustainable. David and I were really just bystanders as they moved through our home with purpose and an eye for what items should be featured. They understand what will engage the magazine’s readers. In the meantime, you’ll only get to see photos I’ve taken.
Our concrete countertops, resurfaced sinks and bathtub, great floors (thanks to a formula perfected by decorator Pam Pringle ), and, of course, the now famous “screen closet door” all drew notice.
Preparing for the photo shoot was easy with a little help from our friends at Nestfeather’s Antiques and Watauga Creek Furniture and with Pam’s wonderful input. Timber frames make a great backdrop. Of course, moral support from the very best webmaster, Tony Angel of Tony Angel Media, was greatly appreciated.
Give me a call if you’d like to visit our “soon to be famous” home. I’m always glad to have the opportunity to show it off.
