Alix, do you think some duct tape around the box placed sticky side up would work in place of the carpet?

Shreddy would try to eat it. He loves to eat any kind of sticky tape.

I just received the completed set of my house plans and groundbreaking for the house is about one month away. I am currently working with a landscape architect who is responsible for the gutters and rain water catchment system. I haven't received the estimates for the house and landscaping yet so I have no idea if I can build everything I want. Things are greening up here, then hidden with snow. My current assignment is to work on what I want for landscaping and gardens on my lot. Kinda hard to do with no visible house in place.

You must be excited about all the possibilities.

the possibilities are in the thousands! that is why I am hiring so many experts to help me with the decisions...tile grout color?? To make the housing estimate somewhat accurate, I had to make all the minute decisions for the builder. But overall it is exciting to be creating a whole new housing environment.

I will see if I can attach a photo of my lot with the view of the mountain. The photo will not show the existing houses in the development, they were behind me when I took the photo

i am positively GREEN with envy to have the opportunity you have, beth, to design your own living space and surroundings, how exciting for you! i could easily get into selecting my own personal grout color.

Not me! All those possibilities would make me crazy. Have fun with it, though, Beth. And grout? Go dark. It will get dirty anyway.
