As my husband, Peter, and I dove into the construction of our mountain-top farmhouse, we faced steep learning curves along the way. We discovered that a clear vision for layout and décor is no guarantee when it comes to what materials arrive on your doorstep. Even with countless hours of research, endless Pinterest board comparisons, Houzz inspiration hunting, and precise planning, you just can’t foresee everything until the project... Read More
