A Kitchen that has Gone to the Dogs

Not sure how I missed this kitchen designed with our canine friends in mind.  Don't you adore the placement of the dog bowls and the drawers above are for leases and other pet accessories.  How thoughtful!

If You Can't Take the Heat, Get a New Kitchen

Just found this link to a website chock full of terrific ideas and loads of great photos.  Shown above is an example from the site that demonstrates one thing I love: the contrast between the ultra mod chairs and industrial lighting.  Way Great!

Check out the link below to view their top 20 kitchens of the year.  My favs:: 2, 3, 6, 11 and 20.

New Homes in The Village of North Chevy Chase by OPaL

                                                                     The Hamptons

                                                                  Martha's Vineyard

The design phase for our new Coastal Collection of homes is nearing completion.  The Village Twins, our latest community just off Connecticut Avenue in the Village of North Chevy Chase, will offer the Hamptons and the Martha's Vineyard floor plans (shown above). Both reminiscent of the upscale coastal communities they represent while still lending themselves to the Chevy Chase lifestyle and esthetic with signatures of OPaL throughout the homes.

Land development and sales begin in early 2012. Priced from $1.5 million.

A home inspection with ZERO items on it??  You read that correctly. ZIP, NADA, ZERO. Most houses have something on an inspection list, but not the Manse at 8008 MacArthur. No Sir.
Peter might know what he's doing after all.  Now I feel bad about razzing him all the time. Well, not really.
A perfect structural and mechanical inspection plus the drywall is almost done and the metal roof (Champagne is the color name, of course) is going on today. Who gets excited about metal roof? We do.
