pretty-ing the camp

DSC_1042 copy

things are moving right along up at "the camp" {or whatever you want to call it.  weve decided there really is no good 'name' for it, but seeing as everyone down south - including our families - has always called places where hunting takes place 'the hunting camp,' and therefore 'the camp,' it will continue to be called that.  even though there exists a great canyon of a chasm between what once 'was' the camp and what now IS the camp...}

...so i thought id update with some pictures.  see past posts here
{and again let me preface this with:this is NOT my house.  its a house i designed for my parents.  i love them for building it and letting me have this amazing opportunity.  oh, and for giving me life.}

some people asked for floor plans and exterior pics...
C:\Users\Natalie\WORK\JOBS\SETZLER LAND\A2.1 Model (1)
{main floor...dont know if its legible...}  

{master bedroom and bath windows, upstairs bonus room}

{laundry room windows}

{entry and porte cochere..and lotsa muddy trucks}

{gun room and downstairs bath}

{upstairs bunkroom}

{downstairs bedrooms and screened porch}

{view from across lake...yes they finally have a lake! im still in awe of how you can dig a big hole and rain fills it with water...in a years time or so...}

as you can see the exterior of the house is very simple, which is why i was able to design the entire thing, working only with the contractor.  simple construction, simple roof lines, second floor fit within roof line.  i would never even attempt to do something more difficult than this...ok actually i did attempt something way more difficult than this for another client while i was drawing this house, but learned very quickly that my expertise + time allowance does in fact NOT allow me to do any "full scale" project more complicated than this!  and definitely not more than one at a time... life's lessons learned the hard way!

{newly 'installed' grass and fire pit my sisters and i gave my dad for christmas}

now inside:
{new lamp, wrong shade.  has since been switched out}
{drapes! black iron plumbing fittings + drop cloths}
{all the bedrooms will have these, not black out...just light filtering.  working room by room since my mom is sewing them herself.  four years ago i would have gladly offered my time. ;) now i can just offer instruction. ha!}

{my room and my "weed" pillow.  i love weeds i guess and there are some great ones around the camp.  i hope to find some this spring/summer and preserve them for framing in different bedrooms.  botanicals au naturale}
