There is the point in a big construction project where you can finally see how it is all going to come together. The painters and finish carpenters and electricians and plumbers all come in and work their magic- and all the design elements of the building are at last in their places. It is this moment, the not-quite-finished moment, that projects often catch at my heart. The bare bones of the architecture, the protective paper still on the floor, the finishing details all falling into place- before there is any furniture at all you can see how beautiful it will be.
I love my job.
