I’d like to introduce you to a little slice of heaven, my little slice of heaven, to be exact. One year ago my husband and I purchased six acres in Boulder County, and here today I’m starting a project journal that chronicles the design and construction of our homestead. It is my intention to share the process with you, a journey that includes the design and construction of a house, a barn, a studio, a landscape, many gardens, and most importantly, a place for all my dreams (and animals!) to live. No pressure, right?

Why the Lucky No. 13 reference in the title of this post? The legal description of our property is Lot 13, and boy oh boy is it lucky. So I’ve named the entire project Lucky No. 13. It took years of looking, researching, and riding bikes
along the back roads of Boulder County before we stumbled across this property. I look forward to sharing our adventure with you, and welcome questions and feedback as we go. In the meantime, happy 2012 and best wishes for a *lucky* new year!
