Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House

for blog outdoor IMG_7734

The Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House is complete.  We nearly killed ourselves to meet the deadline (the house is 7,000 sq ft under roof and was built in 7 months), but it is finished.  We celebrated with a grand opening party back in June, but it has taken me this long to recover and get back to blogging.  If you are in my neck of the woods the house will be open for tours through mid-October.  The hours of operation are: Wednesdays- Saturdays (11-5) and on Sundays (1-5) (closed Mondays and Tuesdays), I’d love for you to check it out.  The house is in Rosemary Beach (at 194 W Kingston Lane, 32413) and the tours are $15/person (benefits the Rosemary Beach Foundation).  If you are looking for a vacation and have never been here, you should make the trip!  And if you can’t make the trip the spread will run in the October issue of Coastal Living magazine.  Here are a few photos from the grand opening party. nicole and erika

My sweet summer interns, we couldn’t have done it without them, and I really mean that.  These girls worked their tails off. 2012-07-03 iphone pictures (clubH, summer, etc) 3077

Me with all my team + the builder’s wife, Cindy, who we’d like to adopt into our family, because she’s pretty fantastic.  I would not have survived nor finished this project without Anne Scott, Allison, Kendall, and Leigh Ann. (And Paula, Annie and Joan… who aren’t pictured.)  Thank you, girls!
