Listen Generously A friend of mine commented, “two words that should profoundly resonate within all of us… in practice, it’s very difficult Listen Generously” I often think about and try to write about the heart of the home those intangible pieces that make a house more than just a building but instead make your dwelling a place that calls to you and gives you a sense of belonging and peace. One of the qualities of an abode you long to return to each day is that of being heard - really heard. Meaning you not only feel safe to share those parts of your thoughts, feelings, experiences and hopes that make your life story uniquely yours but that you are invited to do so...those you live with and love genuinely want to participate in our story….. with no part of it being insignificant.

when my four year old says with great excitement, “Momma, I have to tell you something!” , I’m making a renewed effort to step away from what I’m doing and give her my undivided attention as her story unfolds. As blogger, Mike Colawr said, “Now all they want is my attention and it’s sometimes hard to give. There will come a day when all I want is theirs and I am afraid THEY will find it hard to give. I get it.” My hope is that your home and ours will be a place where we all listen generously and feel heard. Dr. Summer Beattie, ND is a graduate of Bastyr University.

his bathroom remodel was a single phase of a large home renovation that involved designing a master plan and constructing it in separate phases. Through addressing all of the clients’ wishes and needs from the start, the master design plan ensures that each remodeling phase is cohesive with the next and supports the final goal without requiring any “steps backwards.” At the same time, a comprehensive budget was achieved for everything from the start as well! The entrance into this bathroom was originally located down the hall, right across from the main entry into the home and was essentially, the first

sight that greeted guests. While this focal point was not the greatest, the bathroom door was also located closer to the public zone of the home and farther from the private bedrooms. Since we knew that this bathroom’s entrance was an issue of the clients’ and that the hallway closet was not really needed for anything other than linen storage, we opted to mirror

Lakeside Condo

the bathroom layout; relocating the entry door and plumbing locations. In doing so, we were able to incorporate a recessed display cabinet where the entry door once was and now serves as a more pleasant focal point for visiting guests. While moving this much plumbing may have seemed unnecessary or even proved cost prohibitive to most, this move was a part of the original

master plan and the plumbing was easily accessed through the ceiling of the bathroom below; which was remodeled at the same time. This extensive planning and ceiling access allowed these plumbing changes to take place in a cost effective manner and the resulting new layout incorporates many upgraded features. The new vanity cabinet is slightly wider and taller than the original and incorporates additional storage, a pull-out hamper, and a larger sink. A recessed medicine cabinet and a tall linen cabinet accompany the vanity to maximize storage in this standard sized bathroom. Additional upgrades include a deeper soaking tub with dual shower heads, a modern styled com-

fort-height toilet, and in-floor heating. The finishing materials were driven by the initial selection of the floor tile; a beautifully glazed ceramic penny tile that incorporates a soft palette of blues, greens, and yellows. A 10x20 wall tile was specified for the shower surround and backsplash. The buttery-yellow

hue of this tile directly ties in with the floor mosaic and frames the recessed shower alcove that incorporates the same penny round tile. Not only is this shower alcove functional, but the accent tile façade allows the user to appreciate its glazing effect at eye level. Espresso stained cabinetry and white plumbing fixtures provide a much needed contrast against this softer color palette and relates to the cabinetry accents located in other areas of the home. Brushed nickel hardware and lighting complete this design and add a unique touch to further personal this bathroom for the homeowners. From start to finish, this bathroom

remodel was executed as planned and brings us all one step closer to a complete home renovation! The studio of Bauer/Clifton Interiors- a local source for quality products & materials- is located in Downtown Juneau

uneau! Summer is coming! Really, it’s hard to imagine summer after a November cold spell, December snows, and January record rains. What will February bring? Sunny and 75? Sounds like a country song I am forced to listen to on the jobsite day in and day out. Somebody shut that guy up. Yes, I know its sunny and 75 somewhere, but that somewhere isn’t Juneau in February. Well summer is coming and spring will be here before that. Do you see projects coming this spring or summer? Maybe a bathroom or kitchen remodel? Replacing old leaky windows that the hard wind in January made you think someone had left open? It could be that you’re looking into buying a new home this spring or summer. Where does someone look to get started planning a project or home purchase? Well a good place to start would be at the 2014 Juneau Home and Outdoor Show!

being the ugliest and winning a new bathroom remodel. Entries can be submitted until February 28 and links to entry information and entry rules can be found at the Southeast Living Magazine Website. Just think, your ugly bathroom could get new life just by attending the home show. And in the event you don’t win the contest, the home show will connect you with the folks who can schedule a bathroom remodel. After all, if your bathroom was ugly enough to be entered or a finalist, maybe it’s time. on

Be sure to “Save the Date” for the Juneau Home and Outdoor Show on March 7,8 and 9. Friday evening March 7 kicks off with the wine tasting where you can get information

building, renovation, home products, and outdoor items, while enjoying a sampling of wine and beer. The show then goes through Saturday and Sunday. This year also features The Ugliest Bathroom Contest where individuals in Juneau can submit pictures of their ugly bathrooms to try their luck at
