Though I continue to fantasize about my upcoming retirement, I have given into the reality that “upcoming” isn’t any time soon. And that’s okay – I’m having the time of my life and the projects we have on the books for 2015 are going to be a blast!
Being that we have been busier than centipedes at a toe counting contest, I haven’t blogged in a while. In fact, it has been nearly two months.
Looking back, 2014 was an amazing year, with twenty-one projects completed.
When Thanksgiving began to poke its neck into the calendar, we had three projects running toward the finish line and four upcoming builds. I thought we were going to have a semi-quiet holiday; I even toyed with the idea of heading back to Boston for a few days. As life would have it – and as construction often does – we worked every day of December, though we did turn off our phones on Christmas Day. Before the year was out, we were contracted to ten additional projects – which are all currently running at full-speed – and, as if that weren’t enough, another nine clients and architects came knocking on the DGC door before the tinsel was off the trees. Somewhere in between a Fa La La La La and Auld Lang Syne, 2015 rolled in. Heads down and eyes on the proverbial ball, we simply continued to round out construction and design teams to keep things flowing in DGC style.
And now it’s February. Really? Really!
So, to get back on the blog track, and to celebrate the fruits of our labor, I am again finding time in the middle of the night to write a bit about what is going on in the Dirty Girl world.
This weekend, alongside the ever-charming, well-dressed and ridiculously talented Ray Azoulay, DGC is incredibly excited to unveil the new Obsolete, Inc and Slete Gallery during a special opening reception, featuring artist Ethan Murrow’s exhibit: AGGLOMERATE – a confused mass.
Obsolete, Inc & Slete Gallery are now located at 11270 Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA 90230.
We are also working on a residential venture with Kelly Wearstler Interior Design and Yoram LePair in West Hollywood. Yoram was our architect on the Blue Jay Way project, and we are thrilled to be teamed up yet again.
Finally, in additional to many amazing residential projects that we are designing in-house, and a few where we have teamed up with outside design firms, we are totally jazzed to be working on a new commercial project that is totally up our alley. Stay tuned for details as this develops!
