In The News | Atomic Ranch Magazine, Summer 2015

I've been waiting over a year for our home to be in Atomic Ranch, and if I'm being honest, I've really been waiting for years, probably since I laid eyes on my first copy. I honestly cannot believe our home is featured this quarter.

From the very beginning of our house project, my friend Kristen of K. Holly (now located in the San Francisco Bay area) was on board with documenting our restoration. Actually, it was all her idea, which sounded fun to me, but I obviously had no idea how long it would take. Kristen was patient with the entire process, and what she captured for us is lovely. I am especially fond of the DURING images because there are a few of Eames, just over two years old in the photos. I cannot believe how long ago that seems to me these days!

Kristen came out the day after we closed on the house in November 2012 to capture the BEFORE images. About six months later, she showed up to take the DURING images. And then in December, over a year after we started, she was in town to capture the official AFTER images, but then came back when the grass greened up to grab some EXTERIOR shots of the house. And then was back one final time last August to grab some images of us inside our home for a very exciting book feature that I can share more about in the fall!!! Eeeeek!

Last summer, I saw a call for house submissions on the Atomic Ranch Facebook page. I reached out with a bit about our home & the word we did, plus a few images that Kristen had captured for us. Within a few days, I had heard from editor Michelle that our home was being considered for an issue in 2015. I was comfortable writing the copy, and Kristen was happy to have her hard work published as well. It was really a win-win for both of us.

Without further ado, here is the article about our home...
