Once we received our second inspection from the County Planning Department, we were free to cover exposed walls and begin the finish work. All the underground infrastructure is in and approved.
It’s amazing to watch workers apply their craft. Of course you have to have the tools and its certainly all about the tools (if I could grunt in a blog like Tim 'The Tool Man' Taylor, I would do that now).

I have witnessed a series of measurements being made early on in the project for new walls or positions for cabinets with certain fixtures to be installed. Then we saw the piping or electrical outlets positioned according to the Architects drawing. Now the cabinets and fixtures are starting to arrive and they fit perfectly. I’m sure I missed the carpenters measuring for a third and fourth time and there have been a few redos but its been really impressive. There is so much reliance on another member of the construction team to make sure all the parts fit.
Tiles for the bathroom floor.
Our team is now diligently confirming the furniture orders and the moving company has been called to reserve the dates. So much more needs to happen but so far we are on track!

Heath Ceramics in Sausalito emailed us yesterday. They are making the tiles for our tasting bar. They sent us this photo of the tiles coming out of the kiln. They look awesome! And we couldn't be happier about working with Heath as they are local and have great history here in the Bay Area.
Okay - now we have to get these to the house and get them installed!
A few weeks back, the folks at California Home+Design asked us what our design inspiration was. We said, "A place for our friends to drink wine". But here are some of the color samples of the fabrics going into each room. We're pretty sure this is what they meant by design inspiration. Or maybe not. They are design folks, after all, and we really are building a place for our friends to drink wine with us.

We have been working like crazy on the Sonoma House this week. We've made daily site visits to see the progress. The drywall is going up! And we even have some movement on our tasting bar!
Below are some shots taken earlier this week. See anyone you know? That's our President, Russell Joy, in the first shot. In the fourth shot, James Hall, our winemaker, is discussing where the stereo will be with the crew.
