Grapefruit Spoons

“I didn’t finish architect school”

“I went back a few years ago, but did worse”

“Are there ticks in this field?”

“I charge more and take longer than an architect”

“I’m part marriage counselor, part designer.”

“I doubt you’ll be happy with 2,500 square feet.  My guess is that this will end up closer to 3,200.”

“I don’t like to bid out projects.  I’ve got a couple of builders that really ‘get’ me…”

“Are there ticks in this field?”

“We need time to work out where to put your grapefruit spoons.”

Those were just a few of the many gems from tonight’s site walk with the last person on our potential house designer list.  By all accounts, this person is incredibly talented.  Written up in all the fancy Home magazines.  A visionary.

And, unfortunately, crazy as a coot.   Compared to last week’s site visit with the Architect, it was also pretty clear that this person had only glanced — at best — at all of our preparation work.

I’ve now got a pretty good idea why it takes her twice as long…
