Our room compendiums. As it goes in the design world, so much goes into it: finding the wood, coordinating with the graphic designers, writing the compendium (having friends and family edit), formatting, finding the paper, cutting and assembling, and having Zazzle etch the logos on for us. Thanks to all who got involved!

Our first somewhat official guests! All the way from Canada (and Sacramento) for one night only to renew their vows. The nicest, hippest guests with great style, willing to tolerate our construction zone just to stay with us. Thanks for coming.
