Hello! My Name is Portbrook

Hello? Hold on 1 sec, I just need to turn down my daughter’s stereo.  Sarah, for the last time, I don’t care if it’s the most popular song in the country, if I hear the words, “blurred lines” one more time today, you’re not going to be seeing your stereo again for a very long time!  Okay, sorry about that, the kids just started school yesterday and it’s been total chaos around here for a week.  My oldest, Sarah, is in 7th grade and my youngest, Grace, is in 5th grade.  I always wanted to be a mom, but some days I wonder if I was suffering from temporary insanity when I decided to have 2 within 2 years.But, when I really stop and think about it, I’m grateful for my crazy life and wouldn’t want it any other way.

My husband and I run a landscaping business that allows us to spend a lot of time with our girls.  It also allows me to call my greatest passion work because I love anything that involves being outdoors and growing things.  What advice would I give to aspiring gardeners? Well, the most important things are water, sun and soil, so make sure you find the perfect spot before you plant.  Oh no, I didn’t realize it’s almost 5:15!  Soccer practice starts in 15 minutes, so I’ll leave you with these final facts about me:

  • I’m damp location rated and love covered patios!
  • I’m a table top fan that can also be mounted to the wall
  • I come in oil-rubbed bronze and satin-nickel
  • I operate on 3 forward and reverse speeds
  • I’m 19.6” tall

    Great new model!! The look reminds me of one of my favorite cities: Seattle. This particular fan hardens back to some of the great classic portable fans of the last century. I can imagine these whirring above tourists and restaraunteaurs alike, at Seattle’s infamous Pike Place market, or perhaps wafting the aroma of freshly-ground coffee beans, in one of the city’s many coffee shops. A great design!!

      Thanks Matthew! We’d love to see the Portbrook in Seattle’s Pike Place market. Perhaps she’ll find a new home there one day.

    I certainly hope so!! The space is begging for something along those lines. It would certainly add to the ambiance.
